Curcuma longa L. (C. domestica Val.), fam. Zingiberaceae
Turmeric oil, India -Fresh. Nice! This product is also known as Curcuma Oil. It is native to Vietnam and other Asian countries where it has long history as a spice and folk medicine. Like its cousin Ginger it is distilled from rhizomes. Considered a mobile liquid, it is about as viscous as most ginger. The aroma is complex, earthy, spicy and fresh with slight similarity to ginger and faint whispers of fruitiness.
