Turmeric Essential Oil

Earthy, warm, and a tad bit spicy — turmeric is a staple spice in Indian and Southeast Asian cooking. But, did you know that turmeric essential oil itself has a lengthy chapter in history, too? A lot more concentrated than powdered turmeric, turmeric essential oil sure packs quite a punch.

In this article, we will explore everything about turmeric essential oil. From what it is made of to its extraction and myriad benefits. Let’s start!

What is Turmeric Essential Oil Made Of?

Turmeric essential oil is derived from the bright orange rhizomes of the Curcuma longa plant. Native to the Indian subcontinent and Southeast Asia, the plant thrives in temperatures between 20 °C and 30 °C. It also requires quite a bit of annual rainfall.

The plant can reach up to 1m tall and has bright yellow flowers. For the most part, flowering is usually in August.

How is Turmeric Essential Oil Extracted?

Usually, turmeric essential oil is extracted by steam distillation. This involves pushing hot pressurized steam through the roots or rhizomes of the plant. The purpose of this is to release the essential oil within. Then, the steam is condensed and, eventually, the essential oil is collected.

Benefits of Turmeric Essential Oil

1.     Excellent for skin

Turmeric essential oil has long been used as a natural remedy for skin conditions and irritations. For centuries, actually. With its potent antiseptic and antioxidant properties, the essential oil is definitely perfect for this purpose.

For example, the oil helps to dry out acne and its antibacterial properties prevent even more breakouts. To use turmeric essential oil to fight breakouts, mix 3 to 4 drops of the essential oil with a carrier oil and apply it to the areas affected.

Besides that, turmeric essential oil also helps to reduce blemishes and scars. Add a drop of the essential oil to a healing carrier oil (like argan oil) and apply the mixture to the blemish.

If you want to use the oil to treat sunburn, on the other hand, blend a drop of turmeric essential oil with jojoba oil to ease redness and pain.

As turmeric essential oil is chock-full of antioxidants, you can diminish the signs of aging with this wonderful oil, too. Simply add a drop or two of the essential oil to your serums, creams, and lotions.

On top of that, its anti-inflammatory nature also aids in getting rid of dandruff. Simply blend 4 to 5 drops of turmeric essential oil with a carrier oil and massage onto your scalp. Neem oil, which is great at keeping dandruff at bay, is excellent here.

3.     Relieves inflammation

Thanks to its powerful anti-inflammatory properties, turmeric essential oil can potentially fight inflammation at the molecular level.

4.     Boost the immune system

Curcumin, a compound in turmeric, has been shown to help fight a number of viruses and infections.

For a little boost in mood, you can inhale the essential oil directly from the bottle when you are feeling a little down. Alternatively, rub a few drops of turmeric essential oil between your palms. Then, cup your hands over your face. Breathe in deeply to feel its full effect.

You can always diffuse a few drops of turmeric essential oil in your diffuser, too. This will be perfect whether you are winding down after a long day, getting ready for bed, or even just meditating.

The active compounds in turmeric help to block inflammatory enzymes and chemicals that cause swelling. Besides that, it also has a warming effect that works wonders for pain relieve.
