Turmeric

Gobhi-aloo and marriages in India are doomed if someone hides this marvel spice. When it’s missing, all you have to do is get a warrant to search the totes of all grandmothers. Not only will you find the wonder spice, you will also be surprised with a long list of its unending benefits. Apply a paste to minor cuts, bruises and bumps, and observe its antiseptic properties. Mix it with aloe gel and it becomes a quick remedy to ease a skin burn. It helps reduce pigmentation and evens out the skin tone. On the morning of the marriage, each loved one applies a bit on the bride and groom’s body as a symbol of purity. It marks the beginning of decorating the bride and groom, and brings out the subconscious glow. I call turmeric ‘the auspicious spice’ and have it all over my face as I type.
