Turmeric Haldi beads are made from all natural, dried turmeric rhizomes, the bulbous root of the herbaceous turmeric plant. (Looks just like fresh ginger root, but very bright yellowish orange color of turmeric powder. Haldi is the Hindi word for turmeric.) The dried turmeric rhizomes are either ground into the familiar turmeric powder, or carved into these beads.
Native to the southwest of India, turmeric root has been a staple of Ayurvedic medicine for more than 4,000 years. Turmeric benefits and usage has spread recently around the world to contribute to the healing and preventative medicinal applications of countless conditions.
These beads will stain your hands, have a strong turmeric odor, and don't like water!
