How To Prepare Turmeric And Ginger Oil: 3 Health Benefits Of Eating Turmeric And Ginger Oil

This is a blend of fine seed oils and anti- inflammatory medicinal plants. Together they make an oil that is particularly beneficial for arthritic and rheumatic conditions, and protects the heart and digestive tract.

This warming, immune enhancing oil is delicious as a salad dressing, or drizzle a spoonful or 2 onto steamed vegetables or yogurt, or add to smoothies. It can also be useful for relieving menopausal symptoms and premenstrual syndrome.

Some initial studies on ginger have shown that it may alter these anti- inflammatory biomarkers— tiny compounds on a molecular level— and help lower them. Ginger oil comes from the plant called Zingiber officinale.

1. Place the oregano, sage leaves, juniper berries, and rosemary leaves in a blender or food processor, and pulse to reduce their volume. Place the herbs and ground spices into a glass jar and cover with the sunflower oil.

2. Preheat the oven to 120°F (50°C), then turn it off. Wrap the bottom of the jar in a cloth (to prevent the glass from cracking while standing on the hot metal shelves) and put it, unsealed, in the oven.

The dried ingredients need to infuse at a temperature of around 104°F (40°C) for 6– 8 hours, so you may need to turn the oven briefly on and then off again every so often to keep the mixture warm.

3. Strain the oil and discard the dried ingredients; you should have at least a scant 1 ⁄2 cup of flavored oil. Pour into a sterilized glass bottle and add the flax, hemp, borage, and rosehip oils. Seal well and shake.

Label and date, store in the refrigerator, and use within 3– 4 weeks.
