Turmeric… the golden spice
Turmeric… the golden spice
Curcuma longa, more commonly known as Turmeric, has a long history of medicinal use, dating back thousands of years. In Southeast Asia, Turmeric is not only used as a spice but also as flavouring, dye and a component in religious ceremonies. Because of its amazing yellow colour, Turmeric is also known as “Indian saffron.” Although Ayurvedic medicine has long been using Turmeric, modern medicine has only recently begun to recognize its many unique health benefits, and to fully appreciate the extent of its healing potential.0
A note from our Naturopath on winter wellness
The winter season can place added pressure and stress on the immune system. As we, here in Australia, are in the middle of our colder winter months, there is no better time to focus on taking care of your health. By remaining aware of the body’s need for support and ensuring we offer it extra care during this time, you can help it to cope better with these environmental challenges. Below I have listed some practical suggestions to enhance your wellbeing this winter.

Healthy and Happy Skin
A WORD FROM EMMA ON HEALTHY + HAPPY SKIN
The skin is the largest organ of the body and takes on the huge role of filtering toxins and protecting your insides from the environment every day. Many people invest large amounts of money and time in trying to find the perfect topical fix, to correct blemishes, moisturise the skin, dry out oily skin, reduce redness, reduce breakouts and perfect their overall appearance. A great deal of time goes into morning regimes and then more effort at night to cleanse and remove the make up from the day.
Our Turmeric Tea is the perfect post Christmas blend. Designed to reduce inflammation throughout the body, turmeric, black pepper and cinnamon, have traditionally been used synergistically to help improve circulation and offer powerful antioxidant properties. (more…)
