Latin Name : Carthamus Tinctorius
Carthamus tinctorius L., known as Kafesheh (Persian) and safflower (English) is vastly utilized in Traditional Medicine for various medical conditions, namely dysmenorrhea, amenorrhea, postpartum abdominal pain and mass, trauma and pain of joints. It is also largely used for flavoring and coloring purposes among the local population.
To make an infusion, place 1-2 teaspoons of dried herb in a tea infuser or teapot or mug for each cup of tea you intend to brew.
Cover with boiling water. Place on the lid (or cover your cup with a saucer).
Allow the mixture to steep for 10 'to 15' minutes or overnight.
Then strain the tea and serve. Add if you want honey, milk or lemon wedge for flavour.
Safflower seed oil is likely safe for most people when taken by mouth.
