From Ananda Aromatherapy, pure Turmeric oil, organically grown and distilled. Besides its incredible aroma, the therapeutic value of Turmeric is really making headlines these days. It is both a potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory agent. This makes it an excellent choice for arthritis-care formulas, skin care recipes, and virtually any application where these two properties are guiding your essential oil selection. Please note that the oil is very potent, and should be diluted before use.*
