For the past year I have been studying a lot about herbs and spices. A couple of friends of mine have shared with me the many uses of turmeric. Two of which, I was able to put into use this week. The first was to use turmeric in a sea salt gargle for my daughter who was suffering from a strep infection. She used the gargle three or four times a day with positive results. The second turmeric tip was to make a thick paste of turmeric and water and apply it directly onto a blemish. The claim was that the blemish would be gone by the morning if the paste was applied at bedtime. Luckily, I noticed a blemish a couple days ago and decided to try the turmeric paste. Much to my surprise, the blemish was virtually gone by the next morning. I do have to warn you, though, if you have light skin, like me, make sure no one will see you! My daughter asked me if I was auditioning for a role in The Simpson’s because my skin was bright yellow!
