O Magic Turmeric – how many ways can I praise thee…

Turmeric is a herb that is used by me a lot!

I absolutely love it in my cooking and who can resit it in a warm glass of milk.

It makes for an amazing face pack, just relax and allow it to do its magic!

The other day, I had a nasty cut while working in the kitchen. And I panicked but all I had to do was put some of this magic herb on the cut bandage it up and within days the wound had healed leaving no scars.

    1. Facial Hair be gone
      Take a little Turmeric, gram flour or chickpea flour and a little milk. Combine them all in a bowl and using the back of a spoon apply to facial hair. Wait till its dry , maybe half an hour to twenty minutes. Then using a warm , damp towel rub off the paste in the opposite direction to the hair growth. Do this for a couple of applications and the facial hair is no more.
    2. Acne scars and skin troubles vanish
      Its anti inflammatory and anti bacterial effects are great for banishing acne and the skin whitening properties will fade your acne scars.
      The course texture also acts as a natural exfoliate.
      The calming nature of turmeric when combined with the cooling moisturizing effects of milk work wonders on red inflamed rosacea prone screen.If Rosacea is an issue for you, a turmeric and yogurt mask also might be of help to you .
