What is Turmeric? For those of you who do not know, turmeric is a root spice that looks like ginger except it is yellow in color.
. Treating your wound: If you have a cut or bruise or scrape and if you do not take care of it, it can turn into infection. In ancient times it was widely use to heal cuts and scrapes. All you need to do is mix the powder with water, oil such as coconut or olive oil, or even milk or with liquid sugar into a poultice (gently warm either in microwave or on stove top) and apply as you will do with any other ointment. You will be surprised how curing this is. It will suck out the inflammation that is built up. Very good for children’s use.
. Slow Aging: The aging process is an inevitable part of life, but this does not mean that you should look older than you feel.
