The use of turmeric in India and China goes back 4,000 years, where it is valued both in Ayurveda and Traditional Chinese Medicine. It’s associated with inflammation reduction and considered to be an excellent natural antibiotic. Indian medical literature contains over 100 different terms for turmeric, including jayanti, meaning “one who is victorious over diseases,” and matrimanika, meaning “as beautiful as moonlight.” Turmeric is also sacred in Hinduism, embodying the energy of the divine mother and providing prosperity and cleansing.
Cardamom is another Indian plant, thought to stimulate the mind and heart and provide clarity and joy, as well as functioning as a digestive stimulant. It has an intensely sweet, resinous flavor that is at once floral and earthy.
