A classic grandmother’s remedy for building immunity, the golden, ginger-like, Turmeric spice has been used widely for centuries as both food and medicine. In Indian wedding celebrations, the use of Turmeric is of paramount importance. The pre-wedding ceremony – “Haldi”, “Tel Baan” or “Manjha”, of applying Turmeric on the bride and groom’s face is believed to be auspicious and bestows exceptional radiance to the skin.
The spice has a multitude of benefits to offer, delaying the aging process, preventing wrinkles to curing stretch marks, from treating pigmentation to soothing burns, from fighting obesity to building immunity; this miracle spice should be befriended without second thought.
This multi-tasking spice was traditionally used to dye robes and till date clothes dyed with turmeric are worn by children in South-West India to mark the festival of Onam, possibly due to the association of its vibrant yellow color with that of Lord Krishna.
