Turmeric And Its Healing Properties

Turmeric, or curcumin in particular, stops the action of the cyclooxygenase enzyme COX 2, which is responsible for the creation of the molecules that cause inflammation. It’s a preferred choice for people who suffer from rheumatoid arthritis, colitis, Crohn’s disease and inflammatory conditions of the skin, such as psoriasis.

You can take turmeric orally, or you can apply it topically. There are many articles on the web that describe how to use this spice orally. But, there are only a few that describe how to use it topically. Therefore, today we show you how to use turmeric topically, for skin conditions like psoriasis, eczema, bruises, bleeding wounds and other painful spots.

All you need to do is mix ¼ cup of turmeric powder with 2 cups of milk, or water. Put them in a cooking pot and put them on the stove, on low heat. Warm up the mixture. Then, remove it from the stove and wait for it to cool down, until it reaches room temperature. Transfer it in a glass jar, close it airtight and store it in the fridge. Use it as necessary. Take a little bit of the paste with your fingers and gently rub the affected skin area.

Don’t worry if you get a yellow stain on your skin. It’ll fade away within a day.

Another great recipe is the turmeric and Aloe Vera gel. With its antiseptic properties, it provides quick relief of bruises and minor wounds, which can be difficult to heal. All you need to do is apply the paste on the affected skin area and leave it to react. The wound or bruise will heal in no time!
