The Importance of “Safflower”
Safflower is one of humanity’s oldest crops. It is an annual and robust plant, native to arid environments with a long dry seasons. Traditionally, safflower was grown for its seeds, and used for colouring and flavouring foods and making red and yellow dyes. In recent years, the plant has been cultivated mainly for the vegetable oil extracted from its seeds. In Chinese herbal medicine, safflower is called Hong Hua (Carthamus tinctorius L.) and the petals are used in patterns of blood stasis. It harmonises with its slightly warm and acrid flavor, dispersing ‘red’ as it enters the blood stream and soothes the liver. It provides fast relief as its effect on the movement of blood is rapid – stasis is transformed and pain is stopped.
