Origin: a Latin derivative
meaning "Gift of the Earth."
Turmeric essential oil, derived from the parent plant of the popular cooking spice ground turmeric, has a warm and energizing yet soothing aroma. Versatile in its use, Turmeric essential oil flavors beverages and foods, is exceptionally useful in aromatic practice, and is often used in skincare to promote clean, healthy-looking skin.
Why should I add Turmeric essential oil to my collection? Much like other essential oils derived from roots (such as Ginger oil, Vetiver oil, and Spikenard oil), Turmeric oil bears an earthy and grounding aroma. However, Turmeric essential oil uniquely contains the chemical components Turmerone and ar-Turmerone, making it particularly effective as a food flavoring and skin cleanser. Ultimately, Turmeric essential oil is one of the staples of a daily wellness routine.
