Description of Turmeric Oil

Also known as “Curcuma Oil,” Turmeric Oil is steam-distilled from the dried rhizomes of the Curcuma longa plant. Turmeric is most famously known for its contribution to “Indian Curry Powder,” where it imparts the spice with an intensely yellow coloration. However, modern use of the oil has since expanded far beyond the realm of traditional Indian cuisine, and turmeric now finds a place within many different flavor and fragrance applications.

The aroma of turmeric oil is warm, fresh, and spicy, with a lively camphoraceous bite that is especially appealing to citrus profiles. The oil has also had recent expansions within the pharmaceutical and aromatherapy markets, mainly due to the presence of curcumin, which is a naturally-occurring component of turmeric associated with health and wellness. In perfumery, turmeric oil can impart a dry and woody odor to amber bases and “fantasy” style colognes.
