For over 4,000 years, turmeric, a perennial herbaceous plant, has been known for its amazing health-supporting properties.†
In fact, turmeric has long been revered by Ayurvedic and Chinese herbalists alike to purify the body and to promote a thriving system. Presently, the disciplines of naturopathy and Ayurveda often recommend using turmeric to support a healthy immune system and to support healthy skin and normal aging.†
The yellow or orange pigment of turmeric, called curcumin, is considered a primary driver of the health benefits of turmeric.
Turmeric oil, however, also contains turmerones, which are the major constituent of turmeric rhizome essential oils.Turmerones are also bioactive molecules in turmeric which can support health.†
Curcumin and turmerones are not the same, but they both can offer health-supporting benefits to the body. For example, some studies point out that a high content of turmerones can boost curcumin absorption.†
Together, curcumin and turmerones in turmeric essential oil can offer health support.†
Turmeric oil blends well with clary sage, ginger and ylang ylang.
