Last week, I started to get a bit of a perioral dermatitis outbreak and I remembered hearing that turmeric had some anti-inflammatory properties. I also remembered that when I consume coconut oil, my skin looks great. So I googled around, checked out a few turmeric tea recipes and this is my synthesis of what I found. It not only cleared up the eczema, but my skin even looks radiant now. Just be careful where you sprinkle the turmeric – it tends to turn things yellow!
1 – 2 Teaspoons of Turmeric
1 – 2 Teaspoons of Hemp Seeds or Dried Coconut
1 Tablespoon of Coconut Oil
Seeds from 3 or 4 Cardamom Pods
1 – 2 Cups of Water
1 Teaspoon of Honey or Coconut Nectar
A pinch of Black Pepper
Blend until smooth. Then, put in a sauce pan and heat until just warm. Enjoy!
