Person – 1 or 2 teaspoons per day.
Dog – 1 teaspoon per day (20kg dog).
Horse – 1 tablespoon per day. (500kg horse). (Mix into regular feed or add apple puree.)
WARNING: Do not use hot temperatures (ie. boiling) as the curcumin will degrade.
Simply warm some half a pint of goats milk (don’t give cows milk to dogs and cats), add in a teaspoon of turmeric and a table spoon of manuka honey. This is probably the most common way people consume turmeric, usually as a night time drink!
Golden Turmeric Paste
- Freeze clean turmeric overnight & thaw.
- Gently heat ½ cup turmeric in 1 cup water (do not boil).
- Mash or mix to form a paste. (If needed, add a little more turmeric or water.)
- Add 1 teaspoon ground black peppercorn. (Piperine present in black pepper aids absorption of curcumin.)
- Add 1-2 tablespoons of extra virgin coconut oil. (These fats aid absorption of curcumin & add other nutrients needed by an inflamed body, such as vitamin E).
- Keep it on the heat, continually stirring, giving the ingredients a chance to mesh.
- Pour it into sterlised jar (at minimum this means to rinse under boiling water).
- Store in the fridge.
Options: Use a mixture of edible, plant derived oils – coconut, linseed, olive oil etc.

- ½ cup (125ml/60g) turmeric
