Turmeric truly is a wonder spice – anti-inflammatory and rejuvenating – and what better way to soak up all the healing benefits than with the raw grated root? This cleansing and antioxidant-packed tea may well become your new brew of choice! Use powdered turmeric if you can’t find the fresh root. Be sure to wear food gloves or rubber gloves when grating the turmeric as it will stain your nails yellow!
