This makes saffron a useful herb for Pitta disorders with blood stagnation, including inflammation, arthritis, acne, and hepatitis.
Saffron's ability to dilate the blood vessels encourage sweating and opening the pores (diaphoretic), effectively cleansing the skin and restoring a healthy glow. Saffron is also a cardiotonic that destroys phlegm. A paste is used topically in bruises and sores. Its blood moving qualities enhance digestion.

Saffron is a refrigerant for the mind. It's Pitta pacifying qualities have been used to restore eyesight and to lower fevers.
Saffron with milk and ghee is a nourishing reproductive tonic for both men and women. Saffron's blood moving qualities are particularly desirable among herbs that stimulate the release of oxytocin, the "tend and befriend" hormone, supporting saffron's use to encourage mother's milk flow (galactogogue), and to contract and restore the uterus after giving birth. Like most oxytocic herbs, saffron is an abortifascient and should not be used during pregnancy. Its blood moving qualities can stimulate the menses (emmenogogue).
Saffron is also a purifying diuretic for urinary disorders. Saffron is mixed with honey for urinary stones. The recommended dosage of saffron is 1.5 to 3 grams of dried herb, usually taken as a decoction.
