In brief: Tumeric

There are several ways to use turmeric.
It's most effective by ingesting it, but that takes a while to start healing. You can make a paste out of it with just a little water and spot treat or i've heard adding a few drops of fresh lemon juice or rose water is good with turmeric. For severe conditions you can leave the paste on overnight. If you use turmeric topically, be warned that it does dye yo.
