Curcuma aromatica (common name: wild turmeric) is a member of the Curcuma genus belonging to the family Zingiberaceae. Botanically close to Curcuma australasica, wild turmeric has been widely used as a cosmetic herbal in South Asia and nearby regions.


Comon name in English: wild turmeric, aromatic turmeric
Hindi: जंगली हल्दी jangli haldi
Manipuri: লম যাঈঙাঙ lam yaingang
Gujarati: zedoari
Tamil: கஸ்தூதி மஞ்ஜள் kasturimanjal
Malayalam: കസ്തൂരി മഞ്ഞൾ / കാട്ടുമഞ്ഞൾ kasthoori manjnjaL / kaaTTu manjnjaL
Telugu: kasthuri pasupa
Kannada: kasthuri arishina
Wild turmeric has rhizomes with a peculiar fragrance and attractive deep yellow color. The rhizomes are often used in cosmetic herbal medicines and as a culinary ingredient in limited quantities as a food flavor. Leaves are broad and very decorative, elliptic with a leaf stem running as long to the tip of the blade. A fresh stalk with flowers and leaves, cut to proper size and shape, can be used as a floral indoor decoration in vase for up to 10 days.
Wild turmeric is recognised as a medical herb with strong antibiotic properties. It is believed to play a role in preventing and curing cancer in Chinese medicine. In an effort to remove cell accumulations such as a tumors, Curcuma aromatica is often used. There are two species commonly used in cancer therapy that, like ginger, have a spicy taste.It contains aromatic volatile oils that help to remove excessive lipids from the blood, reduce aggregation of platelets (sticking of the blood cells to form masses), and reduce inflammation.


This species is found in the south Asian region, predominantly in eastern Himalayas and in the warm forests of the Western Ghats (India).

Life cycle

The wild ginger is one among the 80 members of Zingiberaceae family of plants. The perennial foliage dies down in late autumn and the rhizomes remain dormant in winter. The inflorescence appears in early spring from the base of the rhizomes. During summer monsoon season and the immediately following weeks, the plant grows fast and vigorously. The stalk grows to about 20–30 centimetres (7.9–11.8 in) tall, and is crowned with enlarged coloured bracts with pink tips. Leaves often appear even after the flowers. When in full growth the plants can reach a height of about 40 cm (16 in) tall.

Curcuma species (Zingiberaceae) are used as both food and medicine in Asia. Ten sesquiterpenes (1-10) and two curcuminoids (11 and 12) were isolated from the rhizomes of Curcuma aromatica Salisb. and identified. The compounds were evaluated for their ability to inhibit cytochrome P450 (CYP). Among them, the sesquiterpene (4S,5S)-(+)-germacrone-4,5-epoxide (7) inhibited certain subtypes of CYP more potently than or at levels comparable to the curcuminoids curcumin (11) and demethoxycurcumin (12); 7 (IC(50) = 1.0 ± 0.2 μM) > 12 (IC(50) = 7.0 ± 1.7 μM) > 11 (IC(50) = 14.9 ± 1.4 μM) for CYP3A4 inhibition; 12 (IC(50) = 1.4 ± 0.2 μM) > 11 (IC(50) = 6.0 ± 1.4 μM) > 7 (IC(50) = 7.6 ± 2.5 μM) for CYP2C9 inhibition; and 7 (IC(50) = 33.2 ± 3.6 μM) = 12 (IC(50) = 34.0 ± 14.2 μM) > 11 (IC(50) > 100 μM) for CYP1A2 inhibition. These results suggest the possibility that Curcuma aromatica Salisb. may cause food-drug interactions via cytochrome P450 inhibition by sesquiterpene 7 and curcuminoids 11 and 12.

  • Summer Pasta with Broccoli Rabe and Croutons

    Summer Pasta with Broccoli Rabe and Croutons
    Healthy Vegetarian Meals
    Image by jazzijava
    The main event this Mother’s Day dinner – I made everything but the pasta from scratch: roasted chickpeas, the bread for the croutons, the roasted garlic / onion paste – then sauteed it all up at the last minute with the cooked spelt linguine, cherry tomatoes and steamed broccoli rabe. The whole thing was finished with fresh basil, lemon zest and a touch of lemon juice!

    The verdict? Mom loved it, the stepdad was ambivalent (I’ll take it as a victory, that man likes nothing I cook, and my stepbrother threw the whole thing out. That hurt, but at least the intended recipient is a fan!
