About this Product

Turmeric, also known as curcuma, haldi, or borrie..

Turmeric has a pungent, 'clean' taste, but it is not hot or spicy at all. It lends the yellow colour to curry powder. It often is 'stretched'/ extended with coloured starch and if you consider how unbelievably healing this spice is, this is a travesty.

It has cleansing and antiseptic properties. In India, if you cut yourself, your mom or gran is going to sprinkle turmeric on the sore, or make a tincture of alcohol, turmeric and cayenne, as a powerful antispetic. Turmeric under the name of curcumin, has found powerful cred as a natural anti-inflammatory and is chiefly used for rheumatism and arthritis. In addition, it exhibits a cleansing action on mucous membranes. It can be used as a healer for the digestive system.

There are two ways of having it: raw or cooked. Ayurveda stipulates that cooking brings out more healing properties. However, raw is also easy and convenient. First thing in the morning, make a drink of warm water, 1ts each turmeric and ginger powderr, 1 juiced lemon, 1TS apple cider vinegar and a touch of honey or plain juice. Nurturing, soothing and alkalinising.

GOLDEN MILK: Is madewith cooked turmeric. Make a paste of turmeric and water the consistency of thin porridge. Simmer for 8 minutes on low heat. Store in a screw cap bottle in the fridge (careful, powerfully staining!! unless you like yellow) and every day, heat up one glass of milk or milk substitute with 1TS turmeric paste and add 1ts honey. This will ameliorate clicking joints, crackling knees, sore lower back, etc. Take consistently every day for 40 days. has a, you can’t think about a curry without turmeric in it.

Turmeric is packed with loads of benefits and today, scientists are also substantiating this fact with research to prove it.

Turmeric is naturally antispetic and that's how it works!
  • Here’s a great recipe for an all over body scrub. Mix turmeric with chickpea flour and water and use it to scrub all over your body before your shower.
