Wild Turmeric - Curcuma Aromatica
Wild Turmeric is known as a well wisher of women and great for the skin. A body mask with turmeric, chick pea flour and sandalwood is commonly used in India in beauty rituals and bridal ceremonies, as it leaves the skin velvety smooth and glowing. A powerful herb in Ayurveda medicine, great for the throat chakra, grounding and an excellent all purpose household herb, it is used extensively in Indian cooking as it rejuvenates on all levels. Wild Turmeric is very beneficial for oily skin because of its ability to cleanse and purify. It is lighter in colour and odour then its common cousin turmeric (Curcuma longa) and therefore does not stain the skin making it a more popular choice in skincare.
