The Bountiful Benefits of Turmeric Essential Oil

By: Fizza Mehdi

Turmeric has been used by humans for over 4000 years. It is a common spice found in many Asian cuisines, and is used to add color and flavor to dishes, but there is more to turmeric than just flavoring! This hardy root is a natural plant medicine that is used across traditional cultures for its therapeutic benefits.

Today, apart from consumption of turmeric in the diet, using Turmeric Essential Oil is a great way to reap the benefits of this high-frequency plant medicine. Turmeric Essential Oil is extracted from the root through steam distillation, which makes it a highly concentrated medium with a true, spicy, woody, and warm aroma. 

Turmeric’s distinctive yellow hue and therapeutic properties can be traced to the main chemical compound Curcumin. This chemical gives Turmeric Essential Oil it’s anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, anti-fungal, and antioxidant properties. Here are some key areas Curcumin aids in the prevention and healing of symptoms. 

Inflammation and Pain

Inflammation may be caused by a variety of different reasons. From everyday skin complexion issues, to gut health, muscle pain and even major underlying illnesses, it is important to reduce inflammation to aid our health! And curcumin is the ideal active component for this issue. Studies show that curcumin fights inflammation at the molecular level preventing the activation of the gene that triggers it. Further, studies show the effectiveness of curcumin to be on the same level as pharmaceutical anti-inflammatory drugs, but without the side effects.

Relieving Inflammation & Pain Blend

1 oz. Pomegranate Seed Oil 

4 drops Yarrow Essential Oil 

8 drops Turmeric Essential Oil 

Massage to skin above painful joints.

Mind and Emotions

Turmeric Essential Oil is great for boosting memory, cognitive function and increased concentration and focus. Curcumin boosts levels of a crucial hormone (BDNF, Brain Derived Neuropathic Factor) that increases new neuronal connections. By creating these new connections, this delays and prevents the onset of brain related illnesses such as Alzheimer’s Disease and dementia. 

Further studies show that reduction in BNDF leads to emotional changes and the rise of negative emotions such as depression. Through the use of Turmeric Essential Oil, curcumin increases neurotransmitters within the brain such as dopamine and serotonin to uplift mood and create positive emotions, thus relieving symptoms of depression. 

Uplifting Mood and Brain Function Blend
