My first introduction to turmeric was when someone one told me, “that stuff” can be used to make yellow rice. I was all excited to make yellow rice until I stained my white countertops with it!
At any rate, I learned how to make yellow rice that day. In addition, turmeric is a great food coloring.
The more I started researching and listening to natural health enthusiast, the more I became excited about turmeric. Of course it isn’t new after all. People have been using turmeric for centuries. So why are there still many people who don’t use it?
Natural living is all about being in the know.
Turmeric has been used by people in South Asia for thousands of years. Turmeric has been viewed as sacred, used for medicinal purposes, and part of the process used to dye their clothing.
There are various ways that you can use turmeric, however, I am going to share 12 ways that you can use turmeric as part of your wellness toolkit.
