The history of Saffron
Considered as the most ancient and coveted spice on the planet, Saffron has been used since ancient times for its many therapeutic properties, refined taste and tinting strength. In the Middle East, Saffron was closely associated with beauty and sensual delight. It was used to make Kohl, a powder used as black eye makeup that prevented eye infections. Cleopatra used it in her hot baths to take advantage of its cosmetic and tinting properties. In India, Saffron, also called Kesar, is well known to Indian women for its fortifying and anti-ageing properties.
