At Lotus Garden Botanicals we have two types of Turmeric oil, a Co2 Select extract and this pure essential oil. The aroma of this essential oil is smooth and spicy with earthy ginger-like nuances. Either Co2 extract or essential oil may be used in aromatherapy. For perfume we suggest this essential oil with its high top notes.
Comprised predominately of sesquinterpenes and ketones, documented benefits of Turmeric Co2 extract and Turmeric essential oil is growing by leaps and bounds in peer reviewed studies and clinical trials. While the percentage of Tumerones is important, ar-Curcumene should not be overlooked. It is the chemical constituent ar-curcumene in turmeric that is believed to hold so many health benefits such as an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory.
