Saffron ? The Miraculous Wonder Herb

Saffron is famed for its distinct flavour, colour, and pleasant aroma. Aside from its use in dishes, it’s also respected by various cultures for its medicinal properties. It has various essential vitamins and minerals and it is loaded with antioxidants. That’s why it’s used extensively in a wide range of medicinal preparations and is quite effective in bringing relief from various health problems.

Let’s look at some of the more common uses of saffron:


Having a pinch of saffron with ghee is good for people suffering from diabetes. It has a high amount of manganese which optimizes blood sugar levels and fights insulin resistance.

Upset stomach:

Drinking the infusion of saffron helps people with insomnia, colic, and stomach gas. It is a great sedative and has anti-inflammatory properties that help calm down the stomach, soothe the burning sensation, and reduce inflammation.

Cold and Infections:

Applying warm milk with saffron on the forehead and temples brings relief from cold and congestion. High concentration of antioxidants makes it a great immunity booster and detoxifies the body.

Oral health:

Massaging the gums with saffron powder reduces soreness and inflammation resulting in strong gums.

Slows ageing:

Saffron protects the skin from damage caused by free radicals and is effective in treating acne, blemishes, blackheads, and age spots. Mix a pinch of saffron with papaya pulp and apply it to your face. Leave for 15 minutes and wash off. Alternately, to reduce acne, blemishes, and pimples, massage the skin with saffron soaked milk twice a day.

As you can see, saffron is a wonder herb and any house would be richer for having it handy. So stock up on those delicate strands of saffron and get right to fight day to day problems just like that!
