In this article, we will deeply explore the wonders of saffron, a holy grail product for those who want the glow of a goddess.
What is Saffron?
Have you ever wondered why there is always a buzz around the price of saffron?
Well, that’s because saffron is an exclusive herb that is derived from the stigmas of a flowering plant known as Crocus Sativus.
Saffron, a scarlet-coloured thread that dates back its origin to Greece, is very hard to extract.
Crocus Sativus flower has only three blooms, and each has a single stigma. These stigmas are hand-plucked and dried for 12 hours to form a vibrant-coloured herb popularly known as saffron.
These flowers are rare to find because they require specific climatic conditions to bloom and yield. To get one ounce of saffron, you would need around one thousand flowers.
No wonder why saffron is one of the most expensive herbs on the planet and so are the skincare products containing saffron, such as Saffron Cream or ayurvedic face oil called kumkumadi tailam! The exotic process of yielding and growing saffron makes it costlier than gold. But if you get a skin with a glow like that of a gold, it is worth investing in skincare products containing saffron.
