Do you use turmeric to improve your health? I’ve been using turmeric as a part of my health routine for a few years now and while turmeric has surged in popularity recently, I thought I would share a few thoughts about how I use turmeric to improve my health.
First, I suggest you learn about the differences between turmeric the herb in powder form and turmeric essential oil. Both forms of turmeric can be very powerful for your health, however, they both can provide different benefits for your health.
Second, I use both forms of turmeric. Usually I decide which one to use based on why I am using it, however, there can be some exceptions.
Third, I use turmeric powder when creating a turmeric golden milk, or when adding turmeric to my green smoothie.
Fourth- I use the turmeric essential oil when I need digestive support, or if I have muscle tension in my knees or back.
Fifth, I like to use turmeric essential oil right before going to bed as I’ve found it helps me relax better and sleep better. I put 2-3 drops in a veggie capsule and swallow it with a glass of water.
In any case, I’ve found turmeric to be so helpful as a part of my health routine that I won’t ever be without it.

Have you ever considered growing a healing herb garden at home? Many people grow smaller gardens or pots with herbs in their kitchens, or in a small outside area, however, you can grow a healing herb garden of many sizes at home. Having a healing herb garden can help with improving indoor air quality and therefore reduce allergies and seasonal threats. An herb garden can also be a convenient way for you to have herbs on hand for cooking, using to help with burns, skin irritations and other common household needs.
Furthermore you can easily grow herbs in pots whereas you can’t as easily grow vegetables and fruits. You can also inexpensively purchase starter plants and herbs in pots that have already started growing. For example, when I was younger we almost always had an aloe vera plant by the kitchen sink for handy use. I remember touching something hot for example and grabbing a piece of aloe vera to soothe my burn. You can also easily purchase starter plants with basil, peppermint, rosemary and cilantro just to name a few of the healing herb garden plants that are sold at most garden stores.
If you want to get more heavily involved with healing herb gardens, here are two kindle ebooks that I’ve found helpful.
