There are many simple turmeric recipes. Here is one of them:
HEALING TURMERIC MILK
Milk should not be mixed or eaten with sour, bitter, salty, astringent, or pungent tastes, combining with incompatible tastes, milk becomes indigestible and causes the build-up of harmful toxins in the body. Drink it at least one hour after your meal. Also it is recommended to drink worm milk, before the sunrise or after the sunset. In this time our digestive system accepts this drink better than in a daytime.
Combined with milk, turmeric is used as a drink, lotion or even a face mask. Both milk and turmeric are anti-oxidants. Turmeric milk helps fights free radicals that damage skin and make it lose its glow and elasticity.
How to cook:
A ½ to 1 inch piece of turmeric is boiled for a few minutes (up to 15 minutes) along with 8 ounces of milk until the milk is almost boiling. Strain out the turmeric and drink this milk after allowing it to cool for a few minutes.
To use as a mask or wash, take ¼ cup of whole milk and add to this ½ teaspoon ground turmeric. Take a clean washcloth, soak in the mixture and apply to affected skin. Leave it for 10 minutes before washing off.
