IngredientsTurmeric Ingredients

½ cup Turmeric Powder (Organic if possible—you can even make your own by buying fresh, peeling, slicing into thin strips and placing in a dehydrator for 6-8 hours. Then simply mill in a Nutri-Bullet or food processor)

1 cup Filtered Water

¼ cup cold pressed organic coconut oil

1 tablespoon freshly ground black pepper


How to TP

  3. Remove from heat, add the pepper and oil and stir briskly until oil is incorporated.
  4. Place your mixture in a sterilised glass jar with a lid.
  5. Refrigerate.

This mixture will last up to two weeks in the refrigerator.
