The Sunny Oil Turmeric
Updated: Jul 4, 2021
Growing up my mum always cooked mostly Indian food, and Turmeric is quite an essential ingredient used in Indian cuisine. It has so many health benefits! I distinctively remember when I was young and had a stomach problem my mum would give me warm milk with some turmeric and it was better. So when a friend gave me a sample of Turmeric oil from DoTerra my imagination exploded with all the cooking possibilities! Needless to say I’ll be ordering the full bottle soon.
