Turmeric oil has a paint thinner smell. I wouldn’t use more then two or three drops cause it can be over powering if used to much. This has a built in dropper for easy usage and comes in a dark colored glass bottle. There is many uses for turmeric oil such as anti inflammatory, arthritis/joint pain and some people use it for a spice in their foods. You could also use this in water or your tea to give it flavor. I received this product free in exchange for my honest review.
