Also known as

turmeric
Latin : Curcuma longa

Sanskrit : Haridra

Hindi : Haldi

Marathi : Halada

How it looks—It is a small perennial herb, with a short stem and a tuft of erect, pointing leaves. The rhizome is orange cylindrical and branched.

What we use—Rhizome - both fresh and dry

What it does—It is thermogenic, anti-inflammatory antiseptic, anthelmintic, appetizer, diuretic, laxative, expectorant and carminative

How we use it

In diabetes—One tsp of turmeric powder along with some gooseberry juice taken everyday is quite effective in keeping blood glucose levels under control.

In fevers—A decoction of a tsp of turmeric powder, some ginger pieces and half a tsp of black pepper in about 8 ounces of water should be taken thrice a day to bring down fever.

In colds—Add turmeric powder with some pepper and jaggery to a glass of hot milk and take thrice a day to relieve congestion and cure colds. Alternately you could add a tsp of turmeric and a quarter tsp of ajwoin to a cup of boiling water and take it after cooling with some honey.

In cough and throat irritation—Half a tsp of pure turmeric powder in an ounce of warm milk is a common household drink for coughs. Make a concentrated solution of turmeric with a pinch of rock salt and coat this on the inside of the inflamed throat for quick healing.

In diarrhoea and dysentery—A pinch of turmeric and rock salt is to be added to dilute buttermilk and consumed to set right an upset stomach. Turmeric, being a gastric stimulant, as well as, a blood enricher is ideally suited for this condition.

In wounds—A most popular remedy to arrest bleeding in fresh wounds is to plug the site with some turmeric powder. Quick lime can also be added to turmeric to hasten the effect.

In fungal infections/scabies—A paste of turmeric is applied especially in infections affecting the crevices of the fingers and toes. The known antibacterial, antifungal and antiviral properties of turmeric make it the first and best choice in such conditions. In urticaria, taking a fresh piece of turmeric rhizome on empty stomach every morning goes a long way in curing the eruptions.

As a depilatory—Turmeric is best known for its cosmetic value and when applied as an ubtan regularly, not only keeps skin free of acne and infections, but is also a safe and natural hair - remover.

In blackheads—Turmeric and mustard seeds are pasted and touched on the blackheads and left on overnight. The face is washed clear with gramflour in the morning.

In worm infestations—A paste of turmeric and curry leaves is rolled into a ball and swallowed twice a day to get rid of intestinal worms.

In urinary calculi—Turmeric powder with a little jaggery should be consumed with "kanji" (rice gruel) twice a day.

In mumps—A paste of neem leaves and turmeric is a popular external application on the swollen glands.

In bronchitis—Take one tsp turmeric powder with warm water 3 times a day.

In piles—Take one teaspoonful turmeric powder with water in the morning and evening.

In cosmetic cream—Mix equal amount of turmeric powder and gram flour in curd. Make a paste. Apply over the face to get relief from acne and black spots.
