MY TAKE ON NYKAA NATURALS TURMERIC ESSENTIAL OIL
Packaging: The essential oil comes in a pretty color coded glass bottle (color coded as in the color reflects the essential oil’s dominant ingredient) with a dropper bottle which is very easy to use. The bottle is travel friendly; having said that, make sure you always use the bottle carefully without creating a mess and make sure you put the lid tight or the bottle will get leaky.
Fragrance: The oil smells of pure turmeric root.
Ways to use: Here are some ways I like to use this oil in my beauty routine-
Facial oil- Add few drops in your facial oil as an anti-acne, pore-unclogging and skin brightening treatment.
Face masks- I use a lot of face masks and always add few drops in homemade or commercial face masks.
Hair oil- Turmeric oil is great to treat itchy scalp, dandruff or hair odor. Add few drops in coconut oil and use it as a scalp and hair treatment 1 hour before hair wash.
Spot treatment- Mix turmeric oil with either raw milk or a carrier light weight oil and use it as a spot treatment before bedtime for inflamed acne.
DIY face masks, hair masks and shampoos- Turmeric essential oil can be added in almost every hair mask, shampoo and face mask you make at home for added skin and hair benefits.
My take on the product: The essential oil is great just like many other turmeric essential oils I have used earlier or made at home. It smells purely of turmeric root and works great for controlling acne and other skin and hair issues. The oil is also great for reducing sun tan and adding a healthy glow to your skin. If you are ok with the herbal smell, the oil can become an essential skin care product in your skin care routine just as it has become an important part in my daily beauty routine.
