SAFFRON’S HISTORY AND USES

The filaments of saffron (find them here) come from the crocus flower and are native to the Middle East.  Their healing properties trace back thousands of years, being used to treat yes, depression, and also hormone, memory and circulation issues, and more recently cancer.  Rich in antioxidants, the phytonutrients in saffron make it one of the most powerful flower herbs available.  For mild to medium cases of depression, saffron is used even by some medical practitioners and is a resource worth trying.

HOW TO MAKE SAFFRON TEA

Happily, saffron tea can be made with the greatest of ease by simply adding the red filaments to any cup of hot tea.  Or follow the instructions below for Saffron Milk Tea.
