White turmeric is native to Asia. It is called “white turmeric” for its similarity to ginger from the outside and turmeric from the inside. Curcuma species produce an array of volatile sesquiterpenes, monoterpenes, and other aromatic compounds. White turmeric rhizome essential oil contains sesquiterpenoids and monoterpenoids. It consists of 1,8-cineole, curzerenone/epi-curzerenone, α-copaene, camphor, β-caryophyllene, elemol, germacrone, curzerene, and β-elemene.
White turmeric may be beneficial for colic, spasms, loss of appetite, indigestion, and stomach pain. Some people also use it for anxiety, stress, fatigue, inflammation, and as a mosquito repellent.
