Turmeric Soap Knowledge and Give Away

Thank you to all who have participated in this give away. Amazingly, 4 of the give away winners were local! So very exciting!
Be on the lookout for another giveaway coming soon.
Turmeric is a spice that has been used for centuries and has fallen out of favor in the last couple of decades, mostly due to the introduction of more exciting spices from other, far away eastern places.

But turmeric is now starting to make a comeback, both as a spice to add color and taste our dinnertime food, but also because of its reported health benifits. A great deal of research has been done the last number of years on the benifits of this spice. And while there are many reasons as why one should add tumeric to food, here are some reasons as to why one should start using turmeric on your skin:

1. It is a natural antiseptic and antibacterial agent, useful in disinfecting cuts and burns.

2. May prevent melanoma and cause existing melanoma cells to commit suicide.

3. It is a potent natural anti-inflammatory that works as well as many anti-inflammatory drugs but without the side effects.

4. Is a natural painkiller and cox-2 inhibitor.

5. Because of its anti-inflammatory properties, it is a natural treatment for arthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.

6. Studies are ongoing in the positive effects of turmeric on multiple myeloma.

7. Has been shown to stop the growth of new blood vessels in tumors.

8. Speeds up wound healing and assists in remodeling of damaged skin.

9. May help in the treatment of psoriasis and other inflammatory skin conditions.
-- information gathered from EAT THIS - HEALTH DIARIES
As if this were not enough, here is some futher information gathered from another site with medical news:

1) Turmeric is a natural healer for skin conditions such as eczema, acne, dry skin and psoriasis.

2) The use of turmeric in cosmetics and skin care products helps to naturally slow the appearance of aging and restore youth. Continued use decreases the formation of deep creases and wrinkles.

3) Turmeric is helpful in speeding up the recovery time for smallpox, chickenpox, hot skin disease and red rashes.

4)Turmeric is sometimes used in natural cleansers, such as a mixture of turmeric powder and milk.

5) Turmeric can help to improve overall skin care. Washing with a cleanser that contains turmeric will reduce hair growth and give the skin a healthy glow. Facial masks and bath oils can also be made with turmeric.

My turmeric soap has been selling quite well locally, but it seems to be quite lonely in my Etsy store. I suspect it is because there are many who do not know the great benifits of using tumeric.

To remedy this, I am offering a give-away in my store. The next 5 people who purchase 2 bars of soap will receive a 3rd bar of turmeric soap completely free, and for no extra shipping.

Just click on my store name to come directly into ULTIMATE ORGANIC SOAP, and let your journey begin.
