Turmeric root oil is distilled from the rhizomes of the plant Curcuma longa, which is a part of the ginger family. Curcuma longa is native to the Indian subcontinent and parts of Southeast Asia as the plants require temperatures of around 20 to 30ºC and a considerable amount of rainfall in order to grow properly.
The rhizomes are also a popular source of the bright yellow spice of the same name. As well as this, Turmeric finds use as a dye, especially in Indian clothing.
This product is supplied in 20kg plastic HDPE containers.
