Red golden threads of saffron are divine delight when submerged in milk and added in different cuisine of the world. The radiance of its distinct colour and aroma calls for complete refreshment, richness and rejuvenation. It symbolizes the royalty and auspiciousness when put on the forehead as kesar tilak. Saffron word comes from the French word “Safran” meaning yellow or red gold. Saffron is obtained as the stigma of the mauve coloured flower of Crocus sativus. It is mainly cultivated in Iran, India and Greece. Can you imagine yield of saffron? Over 70,000 flowers yield only 500g of saffron threads [1]. Saffron is one of the most expensive spices owing to its painstaking labour and marginal yield. Saffron has its association with the eternal beauty of Cleopetra. In traditional Greek medicine, it is used in the treatments of acne, pigmentation, skin diseases and wounds that are followed even now. For younger, flawless and brighter looking skin, saffron is flourishing in cosmetic and perfumery industries.
