Organic Turmeric Powder / Haldi Powder, Pooja Turmeric Powder for Puja, Temple
Turmeric powder comes from India and is made from the roots of the plant Turmeric. The herb is traditionally called Indian saffron because its deep yellow-orange color is very similar to the saffron’s tint. Turmeric paste is used to adorn the statues or murtis of God. For example, Lord Vishnu loves to be decorated with Haldi. Three main ingredients are used for adorning the gods, Haldi, Chandan (sandalwood), and kumkum (vermilion). Haldi is often used along with kumkum to draw religious figures like the swastika, om, etc. These religious symbols are usually drawn with either turmeric or vermilion. If you have blemished skin or any kind of skin disease, you can make a simple anti-inflammatory remedy. Just mix some turmeric powder with a little water to make a paste consistency and apply to the problematic area of the skin. If the paste is too strong for your derma or you have any unwanted symptoms, wash off the paste immediately.
