The History of Turmeric
In South Asia turmeric has a lengthy history as a medicine, spice and coloring agent. India produces the majority of the world’s turmeric crop and is considered to be the best in the world.
A popular cooking spice, it is also known as “Indian Saffron”. The vivid color of the turmeric root is also a source of orange and yellow dyes for silk and wool, traditional coloring for the robes of Buddhist monks.
In South Asia and Ayurvedic medicine, turmeric has been used for centuries as a natural remedy to treat skin conditions including curbing acne, reducing blemishes and scars and discouraging facial hair growth in women. In some parts of India, Bangladesh, and Pakistan, a turmeric paste is applied to the skin of the bride and groom before marriage to make the skin glow. Today, it is most notably known for its ability to help calm aching joints, whether from aging or overexertion.
