FIELD NOTES


We are creating an ever-growing library. From this we select + share stories of nourishing value, we seek definition and clarity, whilst (re)connecting the self with the poetic landscape of nature. Nature that we reflect and that reflects in us. These are our notes from the field:

TURMERIC|tɜrmərɪk| noun
Native to southwest India, Turmeric is a plant in the ginger family.  Its principal component; curcumin, is an active compound that eases inflammation and pain in the body, therefore especially easing for anyone with internal complaints, discomfort or osteoarthritis. We pair Turmeric with pepper in our offerings; this enhances the effectiveness of Turmeric's curcumin, letting the body absorb more of it into its circulation, multiplying the goodness.
