Turmeric by its scientific name curcuma longa is one of the oldest natural remedies used. In the Hindu religion, turmeric is considered a sacred plant. A Hindu wedding tradition involves tying a string dyed with turmeric paste around the necks of the bride and groom symbolizing that the woman is married and able to run a house. In Madagascar, turmeric is known as tamotamo and is planted in the eastern region of the island. The rhizomes of the plant, sometimes mistaken for ginger, are distilled to produce turmeric essential oil.
Turmeric essential oil is highly concentrated in alpha turmerone, ar-turmerone, beta turmerone, beta sesquiphellandrene, ar-curcumene and alpha phellandrene. These different molecules give it the following main properties:

  • Choleretic, Hepato-Biliary Stimulant +++: turmerone promotes bile production by the liver. Bile allows better digestion, especially that of lipids. It also helps eliminate certain toxins present in the liver.

  • Digestive Tonic, Carminative ++: Turmeric essential oil contains monoterpenes and ketones which are molecules that reduce and promote the expulsion of intestinal gases.

  • Intestinal Antiparasitic ++: turmerone prevents the development of intestinal parasites.

  • Anti-Oxidant ++: the richness in turmerone of the essential oil of Turmeric gives it the capacity to capture the free radicals of the organism, thus delaying the aging of the cells.

  • Anti-Inflammatory ++ (sesquiterpene carbides): this essential oil modulates the body's response to an aggression suffered (inflammation) and calms the sensations of heat, and the resulting redness.

  • Healing ++: turmerone helps in healing by promoting the reconstitution of the skin after an injury.

  • Analgesic +: this essential oil helps reduce pain by inhibiting the secretion of molecules that are responsible for its transmission.
