My family is from India and we always have a ton of organic turmeric at home and my family uses it for everything. We buy the turmeric powder from the Indian grocery store in large bags and we use it up very quickly.
My grandmother forces anyone who is ill or tired to have milk with turmeric before going to bed. My mom puts turmeric in everything she cooks and my sister puts turmeric cream on her face as a facial mask!
In India, it's also a tradition for a bride to bathe with turmeric paste before the wedding. Apparently, it gives skin a nice glow but I think it makes skin yellow.
