Our Featured Herb is Tumeric

Turmeric is a tropical plant resembling ginger and growing about 3 feet tall from a rhizome.
The part of the plant that is harvested, crushed and ground is the rhizome.
Turmeric is known for its use in Indian cooking, dying fabric and other textiles as well as for its health benefits.
Turmeric is used in curry powder and is used around the world to provide color in commercially produced foods like mustard, ice cream, cereals, orange juice, cake frosting, chips, butter and sauces.
Among the healing qualities, turmeric is known to have anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, antiseptic and pain relieving qualities.
