Saffron Infused Oil has an astringent quality making it a great option beyond culinary uses. Saffron has been used as spice and medicine in Iranian cultures and medicine historically for centuries and beyond. The main components of this oil are Safranal, Crocin and Picrocrocin. This Saffron Oil is made in Iran for Ancient Purity and has been design for internal and topical use including for Hair.
Ancient Purity Presents…Saffron Infused Oil from Iran. The main components of this oil are Safranal, Crocin and Picrocrocin. Safranal is thought to be the main cause of Saffron’s unique scent. It is now about 80 years ago that this compound has been discovered. Since then different scientific experiments have been done investigating its biological-pharmacological activities. Safranal effects in CNS have been more attractive to scientists and an escalating number of papers have been published regarding its neuropsychological effects. Crocin is a carotenoid chemical compound that is found in the flowers crocus and gardenia. Crocin is the chemical primarily responsible for the colour of Saffron. Picrocrocin is a monoterpene (Monoterpenes are compounds found in the essential oils extracted from many plants, including fruits, vegetables, spices and herbs. These compounds contribute to the flavour and aroma of plant from which they are extracted) glycoside precursor of safranal. Research has demonstrated several health benefits of Picrocrocin such as improved digestion, preventing gastric disorder and ulcer, reducing insulin resistance, lowering serum triglyceride and cholesterol levels, and anticarcinogenic, anti-inflammatory and anti-low mood.
There are only 3 stigmata in each Saffron flower. Once the stigmata (and their red pistils) have been separated from the plant, they are dried to preserve their colour and flavour. Since such a small part of the flower is used, it takes 75,000 Saffron flowers and many hours of labour to make one pound of spice. To create the oil, even more flowers and work are needed. It’s always been treated as a delicacy: a fabric dye for royalty, a perfume compound for the wealthy, an ingredient reserved for special meals that immediately signify luxury.

Saffron Oil Culinary Uses…
Considered being one of the most prized and beneficial plants on our planet, Saffron is the 24-karat gold of spices. With a history spanning back thousands of years, Saffron as well as Saffron Oil has been used by kings, pharaohs, and chefs alike for medicinal, aesthetic, and culinary purposes. Saffron is one of the oldest spices on the planet, and has been considered a valuable commodity for thousands of years. First harvested in central Asia more than 3,500 years ago, Saffron has been mentioned in ancient texts dating back to 1500 BCE, including the Bible and ancient Chinese medical books. With a name derived from the Arabic word for yellow (zaffran), Saffron has long been coveted for its gold and red threads. During its early years, this precious spice was traded throughout Eurasia and desired by kings, Roman emperors, and pharaohs alike as a powerful aphrodisiac and medicinal plant. It is said that Cleopatra herself bathed in a Saffron milk bath before meeting with suitors.
Hailing from the Middle East, Saffron and its oil is still most commonly used in Mediterranean, Asian, and European cuisine. However, this worldly spice can also be found in a range of dishes around the globe, from Spanish paella and other Greek and Italian rice dishes to rich Indian recipes and Swedish Saffron buns. Saffron is best put to use in dishes that have a significant amount of liquid, like bouillabaisse and risotto, as the simmering process is necessary to unleash the full flavour. First, grind Saffron threads into a powder, using a mortar and pestle to break down the flowers. Next, add the spice (or 2 teaspoons of the oil) early to the hot water or cooking liquid in order to bring out the full extent of the colour and aromatics contained in the costly herb. A small amount of the valuable spice goes a long way, so there’s no need to grind more than a pinch of the threads.

“She opened the tin to show Candace the dark red strands, a fortune in her palm, dearer than this much caviar, this many shaved truffles; it was for spices like this that Columbus had set out in his ship.
