When I say turmeric, what do you think of? I’m betting you’re thinking of some delicious spicy foods! Yes, this herb is a wonderful spice, but did you know that it can be used in many other products and industries as well? While most well-known for its culinary uses, turmeric can also be used for bath and body products, hair care, skin care, soap making, and even for many medicinal purposes! Turmeric would be a great addition for all of your upcoming creations! Did you know that turmeric can even be used as a dye for clothing? In India, it is used to color saris and Buddhist monks’ robes!
There are many amazing medicinal benefits to using turmeric. It can be used as treatment for many different conditions including rheumatoid arthritis, depression, diarrhea, worms, ringworm, fever, leprosy, cirrhosis of the liver, water retention, heart burn, jaundice, inflammatory bowels, hepatitis, fibromyalgia, eye infections, and even leech bites. For women, turmeric does work to help with menstrual problems. In traditional Ayurvedic medicine, it has been used to treat the flu, parasitic infections, strains, bruises, colds, joint pain and inflammation, and even ulcers. Turmeric has many antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. These properties actually work to reduce brain inflation, which is believed to be the main cause of Alzheimer’s disease. So turmeric can essentially work to delay the onset of Alzheimer’s disease. This wonderful herb can even work to prevent childhood cancers and leukemia!
Common bath and body products that can include turmeric are soaps, hair conditioners, facial masks, scrubs, ointments, lotions, creams, bath teas, face toners, bath bombs, and lip balms. When used for its hair care benefits, turmeric works to treat dandruff, promote new hair growth, and moisturize the hair. It can be used to promote blood circulation in the scalp, prevent hair loss, and treat many scalp conditions like inflammation, flaking, itchiness, and even alopecia. Turmeric can also be used as a natural hair dye, working to brighten the hair. For skin care, turmeric works to treat many skin conditions like eczema, acne, psoriasis, and dry skin. It works to fight the signs of aging, make the skin brighter and give it a healthy glow, and remove any excess oils. Turmeric can also be used to lighten stretch marks, remove dead skin cells and facial hair, soothe any burns, reduce redness and inflammation, and it can also be used to reduce skin pigmentation and tans.
Did you know that in India, turmeric is considered holy? For centuries, it has been used for many Hindu ceremonies, and it still used today for religious ceremonies and in weddings.
