Turmeric essential oil has the same fresh, spicy and woody aroma as the powdered spice used in Eastern cuisine, but is even more vibrant and delicious. Used in an oil burner, a few drops in the bath or blended as a massage oil or cream, turmeric oil is said to be good for arthritis, muscle aches and pains and rheumatism. It is known to be an insect repellent and is an uplifting oil which can ease anxiety, stress and related illnesses, insomnia, nervous fatigue, relieving the physical and mental symptoms of depression. It is said to aid with realising one's own potential or increasing the desire for change and helping to eliminate anguish and fear. The therapeutic properties of turmeric oil include analgesic, anti-arthritic, anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant, bactericidal, diuretic, hypotensive, insecticidal, laxative, rubefacient and digestive stimulant. Aroma: fresh, spicy and woody. Note: do not use when pregnant or breastfeeding, may irritate sensitive skin, use in moderation.
