Turmeric is a spice often used in curry powders, and for giving a deep yellow colour to foods.
The active compound curcumin is thought to have many medicinal benefits. It is a powerful antioxidant.
Turmeric can be made into a tea - boil for 10 mins to bring out the medicinal properties. You can then add rooibos, cinnamon, lemon peel and honey to make a delicious winter warming tea.
In the Ayurvedia system organic turmeric is mixed with water into a paste and applied to wounds to help with healing.
Turmeric can also be used in face packs to help clear the skin.
The Latin name is Curcuma longa and it is in the same family as ginger.
