Turmeric has been used for centuries throughout ayurvedic medicine as well as a spice for flavoring food. This popular root is steam distilled into an essential oil to be used for its strong antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. Turmeric has also been used as a dye for its beautiful yellow, orange color. When diffused or inhaled, this essential oil can promote stress relief. The warm aroma of Turmeric adds a great spicy note to any essential oil blend and works well in blends for inflammation, detoxing, massage, and balancing.
