Healing Herb, Turmeric, may be the most effective nutritional herb in existence. Turmeric (Curcuma longa) is the plant we all know for a spice that gives curry its yellow color.
Turmeric medical properties of health benefits including antibacterial and antibiotic effects are known to human beings long back from 5,000 years. Scientific research also states today this ancient spice has truly remarkable healing properties. Turmeric is a natural antiseptic and antibacterial with antibiotic properties that has historically been used as an agent to treat everything from minor cuts and scrapes to scabies, skin ulcers and even leprosy. Turmeric is also a powerful topical antibiotic which helps to prevent infections and sepsis in wounds. Acne, psoriasis, eczema and other skin conditions also benefit from the antibacterial action of the spice. It is considered a symbol of purity, prosperity, and fertility.
Turmeric contains dozens of powerful compounds including a powerful active chemical compound called curcumin. This compound is not only responsible for its vibrant yellow-orange color and its distinctive flavor, but it also gives Turmeric some of it’s powerful health benefits. It is a natural antiseptic and antibacterial agent and can be used as an effective disinfectant. If you have a cut or burn, you can sprinkle turmeric powder on the affected area to speed up the healing process. Turmeric also helps repair damaged skin and may be used to treat psoriasis and other inflammatory skin conditions.
Turmeric powder is an effective home remedy for the chronic cough and cold and throat irritations. Turmeric is used for arthritis, heartburn, stomach pain, diarrhea, intestinal gas, stomach bloating, loss of appetite, jaundice, liver problems and gallbladder disorders.

Practical Uses for Turmeric
*Soothing Face Mask
Turmeric can also be used on skin! One of my favorite ways to use it is in a face mask. You can add 1/2 teaspoon of turmeric powder to any face mask recipe you love.
Mix 2 tablespoons of unsweetened yogurt with 1/2 teaspoon of turmeric and 1 teaspoon of honey for a soothing and cooling face mask. I leave it on for about 5 minutes and wash off. (I’ve never had problems with it staining skin, but use an old towel just in case.)
Just like in the face mask above, the anti-inflammatory properties of this unique spice makes it beneficial to help cool and stop acne. I make a paste of honey and turmeric (2 parts honey to 1 part turmeric) and dab on to spot treat.
- Wet your toothbrush and then dip it in 1/8 teaspoon turmeric powder. Brush teeth as normal, but instead of rinsing when you’re done, allow the turmeric to sit on your teeth for 3-5 minutes so it can do its magic.
2. Spit and rinse thoroughly, then follow with a second brushing using your regular tooth powder/toothpaste. If you notice any yellow around the corners of your mouth, wash with soap and it will rinse away. Likewise, if any turmeric powder is left on your teeth or gums it will cause a slight yellow tint, but when the turmeric is fully rinsed away you should notice a brighter, whiter smile. You may notice a difference with the first application. If not, give it a few days to a week – if you’re skeptical I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised!
* Stop the Itch!
A thin paste of aloe vera gel and turmeric can help calm itchy or burned skin. Use this on bites, poison ivy and even eczema with good results. Fair warning… it is messy! For kids, I let them use this right before bathing while they are in the tub to keep the mess down. It only takes a few minutes to help cut the itch/pain so I read them a book and let them finger paint the turmeric salve on themselves. THERE ARE SO MANY OTHER WAYS TO USE TURMERIC.
