Calms Aching Joints
Sore, achy joints can be incredibly painful and really put a damper on everyday life. Turmeric is a great oil to have on hand when you’re looking for your next pain relief blend as it helps calm aching joints, whether from aging or just overexertion. For a joint blend, add 1 drop Turmeric CO2 Extract, 2 drops Blue Tansy and 2 drops Black Pepper in 1 tablespoon of carrier oil and apply to affected areas.
Eases Stomach Aches & Cramps
In addition to helping with joint pain, it’s also useful for easing stomach aches and cramps. No matter if it’s due to gas and bloating or that time of the month, Turmeric can help. For an easy topical blend, add a drop of Turmeric CO2 Extract with a drop of Clary Sage or Black Pepper to your favorite carrier oil and massage on your abdomen you experience discomfort.
Turmeric makes a great addition to your skincare routine! It helps reduce those pesky blemishes whenever they pop up. Plus, it will also help protect your skin from environmental impurities. You’ll be able to keep fresh, glowy skin all year long.
Soothe Head & Neck Tension

When you feel a tension headache coming on, or maybe you just slept wrong, add a few drops to a carrier oil and massage onto the area of concern to help ease the pain.
