Christmas in the Greenhouse

Briefly about saffron

Saffron is genuinely a luxury spice highly valued for its beautiful colour and good taste.

In Sweden, it has become a traditional Christmas spice.

According to Ayurveda, Saffron possesses a Sattvic (pure) qualiility to balance all three doshas and increase peace, love, happiness, devotion, and compassion in an individual. Although its list of health benefits is immense, saffron boosts the mood, heals the nervous system, rejuvenates the tissues, and nourishes the reproductive organs.

Live well and wisely!
