Turmeric Face Mask

This face mask is a great way to help reduce inflammation, clear breakouts and even out the skin tone.

  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric powder
  • 1 teaspoon organic apple cider vinegar
  • 1 Tablespoon of raw honey

In a small bowl, mix turmeric powder with apple cider vinegar, honey, milk or yogurt. Try to get a consistency that will stick to your face. Be careful not to make it too thin as it may drip. Apply the mask to your face, careful to avoid the eyes. Allow the mask to sit on your face for 15-20 minutes. Rinse well with warm water.


Turmeric Tonic

Loaded with antioxidants and vitamin C, this tasty tonic is a great way to start the day or the perfect afternoon pick-me-up.

  • 2 ½ cups water
  • 1 whole lemon, sliced
  • ¼ teaspoon ground turmeric
  • ¼ teaspoon ground ginger

Bring the water to the boil in a small saucepan. Turn off the heat and add the lemon slices, turmeric and ginger, stirring once or twice. Let steep for 30 minutes. Strain, reserving liquid in a glass container or individual mugs. Serve as-is or over ice, if desired.


Turmeric Smoothie

Turmeric and orange juice add tang while strawberries and goji berries provide sweetness and a bit of texture.

  • 1 cup almond or coconut milk
  • 1 ½ cups frozen strawberries
  • ½ cup orange juice
  • 1 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • ½ teaspoon ground ginger
  • Handful goji berries

Combine all ingredients in a blender and process until smooth.
