If there’s one thing I’ve learned about superfoods, it’s that turmeric trumps them all.
Turmeric is pure magic.
This beautiful root is packed with so much goodness that it is basically magic. Paired with spicy ginger and cayenne pepper, lemon and fresh orange juice and a drop of raw local honey, this Glowing Turmeric Elixir Paste is drop dead #gorgeous.
