       हरिद्रा कटुका तिक्ता रूक्षोष्णा कफवातहा। वण्यां त्वग्दोषमेहाम्रशोधपाण्डुवणापहा॥

Turmeric is sometimes called Indian saffron because it is an ancient spice that has been used mostly in cooking. Turmeric is one of the most commonly used spices in Indian recipes for hundreds of years. It is known for its properties like blood purifying, anti-bacterial and anti-aging properties. Turmeric also supports in reducing acne, blemishes, pigmentation, and inflammation. 

You can add turmeric as a spice to your cooked food, or drink turmeric milk at night. You can also use it as a face mask by mixing it with rice powder, raw milk, or tomato juice. Turmeric is good for all skin types (Vata, Pitta, and Kapha). It is also used as a medicine to provide relief from pain and inflammation caused because of rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis. This is because of the presence of curcumin, which has anti-inflammatory properties. According to Ayurvedic textbooks, turmeric has various medicinal properties. 

Turmeric is katu (pungent) in smell and Tikta (bitter) in taste. Turmeric helps to balance Kapha due to Rusksh (dry) property. It helps reduce the symptoms of aggravated Vata because of its Ushna (hot) nature. Turmeric also has Varnya (good for skin) property, which is beneficial in treating skin problems. Regular use of turmeric can provide relief from inflammation and other blood-related disorders.
