Turmeric Essential Oil (Curcuma longa) is also commonly known as Indian Saffron or Indian Yellow Root. Turmeric is part of the ginger family. The oil comes from the thick root of the herb. It has a fresh, spicy aroma similar to ginger. Turmeric has a base note of medium intensity.

We included Turmeric Essential Oil as part of our Rocky Mountain Oils Wellness collection because it’s wide use in Chinese and Indian medicine. When diffused turmeric can promote deep relaxation.

I use the spice, and the oil has the same smell, it’s easier to use and more versatile than the powder form, at least to me.

Love RMO's Turmeric EO!
This essential oil has been difficult to find. It's easy to find a CO2 extraction, but I wanted a steam distilled, therapeutic grade oil. Thank you, RMO for producing this true, therapeutic grade, organic turmeric essential oil! It's fabulous!

What extraction method is used for RMO Turmeric EO?

I take turmeric in a capsule recommended by my doctor. One of the things I hate the most is the smell and taste. Does this oil smell like the powder? I have never smelled the actual plant. Thanks!
A shopper on Oct 13, 2018

The scent of the oil will be true to the plant. Many factors go into the scent, such as growing conditions. If the scent does not settle with you, please feel free to take advantage of the 90 Day No Hassle Return Policy and Satisfaction Guarantee.

Is turmeric essential oil the same as turmeric extract ?
Benjamin G on Sep 20, 2018

The oil is more concentrated than a typical extract and carries more of the aromatic compounds of the plant.

Can you ingest turermic oil?
Rose N on Sep 10, 2018
BEST ANSWER: At this time, we do not provide recommendations on ingestion because the body can safely absorb essential oils by topical application or diffusion. However, they are of quality to use internally with wisdom, safety and appropriate guidance. You can find an aromatherapist in your area here: ​

Do you have to use black pepper oil with this product? I was told that black pepper helps in absorption.
Sandi K on Sep 3, 2018
BEST ANSWER: This would depend entirely on personal preference. You are welcome to use this oil by itself or create a blend with other oils. However, essential oils are very potent and can be skin irritating so we would recommend diluting it with a carrier oil before applying it topically. Our general recommendation for dilution is 3-7 drops of essential oil per 1 teaspoon of carrier oil.
Can I take Turmeric Oil internally?
Marvin G on Aug 26, 2018

Rocky Mountain Oils feels that essential oils are very potent and can be dangerous if not used correctly. All of our oils are 100% pure, natural, and authentic. They are of the quality to ingest. However, we cannot provide dosing suggestions or directions on how to ingest if you choose to do so. If you do choose to ingest the oils, we suggest consulting an Aromatherapist or trusted health professional for guidance.
