Use it as Toothpaste
Believe it or not, you can brush your teeth with turmeric! It shouldn’t replace your regular toothpaste, but you can try using before brushing your teeth with your toothpaste to whiten your teeth, clean your mouth, and get some other benefits from it as well. This is a known natural remedy for teeth that are starting to yellow a little bit. Have powdered turmeric in a dish, wet your toothbrush, and dip it into. Brush your teeth with it, then let it sit for a couple minutes. Rinse out your mouth and brush your teeth with your toothpaste.
Spice Up Your Dishes
Turmeric is a type of spice, so any time you have a boring dish that needs a little bit of flavor, it is a great way to get more of it into your life. Every time you are eating some roasted veggies and are hoping to spice them up a little bit, add some turmeric to them along with your other seasonings. Turmeric is also a great way to add a little bit of color to pale dishes, such as white rice, potatoes, scrambled eggs, and quinoa. You will enjoy the added color and flavor combined with these types of dishes.
Get Help For Your Cold
Turmeric also happens to be good for helping with a cold. This is because the strong spice is helpful at boosting your body’s natural antibiotics, which can help fight off virus and infection. Turmeric is also efficient at boosting your immunity so it helps to prevent it as well. To make a little cold remedy with turmeric, combine the powdered form of the spice with raw honey and mix it well. Have a spoonful of the mixture by just leaving it in your mouth to dissolve on its own whenever you feel ill.
Use Turmeric On Your Skin
Since turmeric is great for inflammation, you can help with irritation and rashes on your skin by applying it directly. It can help with any skin conditions causing itching or a rash, such as eczema or a bug bite irritation. Combine with the turmeric powder with water or coconut oil, then apply it to the area. Let it sit there for a few minutes, then rinse it off.
