hawaiian oana turmeric™

  • Temple Turmeric uses a proprietary varietal of turmeric called Hawaiian Oana Turmeric.
  • Our proprietary Hawaiian Oana Turmeric is ethically sourced and compassionately hand-harvested from organic, non–GMO, family farms. We offer 100% traceability to the nutrient rich, volcanic soils of the Big Island of Hawaii.
  • “Oana” is a name born of 2 Hawaiian words: ohana, for family, and olena, for turmeric. We have brought them together to help us convey the love and connection we feel with our turmeric.


Temple Turmeric crafts the world’s highest quality whole-root turmeric beverages by delivering high levels of organic, non-GMO, origin verified, never-heated, whole root Hawaiian Oana Turmeric in every bottle. No processed turmeric powder here!

We blend between 5,000 to 13,000 mg of our organic, whole root Hawaiian Oana Turmeric into every serving of Temple Turmeric Elixirs, Super Blends, Super Lights, and Super Tonics. That is between 10-26 times more turmeric than the average supplement!*
