Turmeric Essential Oil
Turmeric has been used for thousands of years as a medicinal herb to cure a variety of ailments. Turmeric essential oil has a spicy-woody perfume that is comparable to that of the powdered spice used in Eastern cuisine, but it is even more bright and delectable. It has a warm, spicy perfume with mild woody undertones, suggestive of ginger.
Fight acne naturally: Mix 2-3 drops of turmeric essential oil with a carrier oil such as tamanu oil (hailed as a natural acne cure) and apply to the affected areas daily.
Reduce blemishes and lighten skin: Use 1-2 drops of turmeric essential oil with a carrier oil such as organic argan oil (a healing moisturizer) to lighten skin and fade away blemishes.
Treat sunburn: To soothe irritation and redness from sunburn, mix 1-2 drops of turmeric oil with jojoba oiland apply to affected areas.
Soften cracked heels: In warm water, soak your feet for 10-15 minutes and pat dry them with a towel to keep them soft. Apply a few drops of turmeric oil on your heels mixed with a carrier oil such as castor oil, which is a great detoxifier and generously apply the mix to your heels. Repeat weekly, preferably before bedtime for the oils to soak in and for naturally soft heels in the morning.
Fight the flu: When flu season approaches or someone in your household becomes ill, put a few drops of turmeric essential oil in your diffuser and allow the healing vapors waft through the air as a preventative strategy.
Steam Inhalation: Inhale the strong vapours for 5-10 minutes after adding 5-6 drops of turmeric essential oil to a bowl of hot water, covering your head with a towel. The antibacterial qualities of turmeric oil help to combat cold and flu germs, while the hot steam helps to thin and discharge thick phlegm. The oil’s anti-inflammatory qualities also aid in the relief of irritated airways and nasal passages.

Kambio Nature was created by a French family who fell in love with Cambodia and its nature in 2013. In recent years, the increasing use of chemical ingredients in skin care products and its impact on the environment caught their attention. In 2014, they produced the first distillations of essential oils in Siem Reap and in 2015, Kambio Nature was launched. The name is derived from Kampuchea (the ancient country name for Cambodia) and Bio for natural. All products are organic and made responsibly with the European ECOCERT standard.
