There is plenty of information out there on the many benefits of turmeric essential oil, so I am not going to list the health benefits here. This site is about gut health, so I will mention some of these benefits.
Digestive benefits of turmeric essential oil
Zingiberene makes up more than 30% of turmeric essential oil’s components and is known to have a strong effect on the gastrointestinal system. It can not only reduce bloating/cramping, but also optimize nutrient uptake and the digestive process.
Derived from curcumin, the anti-inflammatory substance called alpha-curcumene is found in turmeric essential oil in very high concentrations. This allows turmeric oil to soothe inflammation associated with gastrointestinal inflammation.
A Japanese study (see link below) showed that the combination of curcumin and turmerone given by mouth at both low and high doses actually abolished tumor formation. Study results published in BioFactors led researchers to the conclusion that using turmerone in combination with curcumin may become a potent means of natural prevention of inflammation-associated colon cancer. See study here.
Turmeric is also being studied as a treatment for diseases like Crohn’s and ulcerative colitis.
