Turmeric Oil for Coughs
I recently started enjoying turmeric essential oil after I had an ongoing cough for a month after an illness. Trying every natural remedy I knew to try to get rid of it, nothing worked. Garlic, honey, tea, lemon, other essential oils, etc. I had even taken turmeric powder capsules.
Then I thought I should try turmeric oil because it’s wonderful for so many things! And I thought I remembered seeing it in the past in natural remedy recipes for coughs. So I put 2 drops in a veggie capsule one evening and again the next morning. Within about 16 hours from my first dose, the cough was gone!
Turmeric Essential Oil is More Potent Than Powder
In general, liquids are more potent to your body and enter the bloodstream faster than solids. That’s one reason why soda is extra bad for you. Sugar is obviously not healthy, but a sugary drink hits your body harder as a liquid than a candy bar does.
Because of this, turmeric essential oil is more quickly absorbed by your body. It does not have to be broken down like a powder. So it’s really effective.

Turmeric works great by itself for a cough, but for some people it works even better in conjunction with mullein. I always have this on hand as well!
