Light and slightly aromatic, with notes of Ginger and Orange, this is as transparent as a spice scent can get.
Turmeric has been used as a bright yellow dye, and in cooking for hundreds of years, mostly to add color to sauces and curries. More recently, it is touted for its health benefits. But only Demeter is focused on the lovely scent profile Turmeric provides.
The Mistress of Spices

when light drips fat and butter-colored into the bins to be soaked up glowing,
when you pray to the nine planets for love and luck.
