Tumeric (Curcuma longa) Essential Oil

As with its herb- tumeric, the essential oil provides a useful alternative for external use. Originally from India, it is well known for its anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, antimicrobial and anti-ageing properties (fine lines and wrinkles). It has historically been used in Chinese and Indian Ayurvedic medicine to treat arthritis due to its active components which are known to block inflammatory cytokines and enzymes. The effectiveness of oral intake of tumeric can sometimes be limited due to a variety of factors and the essential oil can be a useful alternative in many cases.
