  1. Culinary Uses:

    • Safflower Tea: Dried safflower petals can be used to make safflower tea. This herbal tea is known for its mild, earthy flavour and potential health benefits. It is often used as a caffeine-free alternative to traditional teas.
  2. Natural Dye:

  3. Herbal Remedies:

    • Traditional Medicine: In traditional medicine, safflower has been used for various purposes. Safflower tea, made from dried petals, is believed by some to have potential benefits for the cardiovascular system, promoting circulation and reducing inflammation.
  4. Cosmetic and Skincare Products:
