Περιγραφή: Organic Turmeric essential oil is derived from the root of the Curcuma longa plant. Turmeric, also known as Curcuma longa, is a perennial rhizomatous plant that can grow up to 1m in height. It is extracted through CO2 extraction of the plant’s root. Turmeric is native to Asia and has been a significant part of traditional medicine for thousands of years.

Special Characteristics: The aroma of organic Turmeric essential oil is spicy, sweet, and warm. Its main compounds are α- and β-turmerone and ar-turmerone. Additionally, in smaller concentrations, it contains α-phellandrene, α-zingiberene, and sesquiterpenes. The extract contains only traces of curcumin.

Applications in Cosmetics: Organic Turmeric essential oil possesses antiseptic, calming, decongestant, and soothing properties. It alleviates inflammation associated with arthritis, gout, headaches, muscular pains, joint disorders, and various chronic conditions throughout the body, including gastrointestinal inflammation. Known for its stimulating properties, it not only enhances metabolism but also promotes heart health by reducing platelet accumulation in arteries and blood vessels, thereby facilitating better blood circulation in the body. Widely used in the pharmaceutical industry, it exhibits antiseptic, antimicrobial, antibacterial, antifungal, and antiparasitic properties. It can help the skin appear younger, improve skin elasticity, slow down the appearance of wrinkles, and protect the skin from pollution and irritation. Due to its numerous antioxidants, it stimulates cell regeneration, ensures proper hair follicle function, while also eliminating infections and inflammations on the scalp. Additionally, organic Turmeric essential oil, with its main constituent being turmerone, appears to have antifungal activity against dermatophytes, which cause specific fungal infections of the skin, e.g., athlete’s foot. Therefore, Turmeric extract is suitable for use in alternative creams for the treatment and prevention of dermatophytosis.

Applications in Food: Organic Turmeric essential oil, due to its high content of turmerone responsible for the typical flavor of turmeric, can be used to impart characteristic flavor to foods and beverages. It can also be used in dietary supplements for general well-being and to support normal gastrointestinal function.

Attention: ALWAYS use diluted in a carrier oil or other solvent.
