Turmeric or Curcuma Longa is a perennial herbaceous plant of the ginger family. The pure turmeric essential oil used in our blends come from India and is steam distilled from the roots. Turmeric contains Curcumin which is known to have powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.
While only a few skincare products include turmeric in their blends, incorporating turmeric in massage oils is common in South Asia. I grew up enjoying turmeric in cooking but my mother also introduced me to turmeric in skincare - I still remember using her fine homemade turmeric scrub and mask.
