A quick and easy paste made with ground turmeric, pepper, coconut oil, and honey to use in cooking or beverages. Add a tablespoon or two at the end of cooking of your favorite soups, stews, or cooked meals. Add 1 tablespoon or more to a cup of hot water or milk (or milk substitute) for a lovely drink. Add lime, ginger, and cinnamon for a flavorful break from the usual tea. Always allow the paste to heat for at least 5 minutes in any of these before consuming.

This is the first time I'm writing a review but I just couldn't help myself. This is literally what I put on my face as a moisturizing anti-inflammatory mask. (minus the pepper) I always make a tea with the leftovers. Use organic honey just rub the mixture on your face. Let it sit for 15 mins (enjoy the tea while waiting) then wash off with a warm face cloth. It's a great for clearing your skin from inside out. Read More
