The seduction of saffron…
I’ve always been a curious little bean about this ravishing spice. Even saying the word “saffron” really slowly sounds seductive (seriously, try it.) Everything about this spice is intriguingly sexy. Saffron is a spice fit for the royals, as this bitch is not cheap – she’s literally the most expensive spice in the world. Saffron seduces through all of her amazing antioxidants that destroy free radicals. She’s not only rich in flavor and color she’s prosperous in potassium, magnesium, zinc and selenium also. All components that’ll increase blood flow to the sexual organs, therefore increasing sexual arousal. Rawr. Let’s undress this risqué spice a little more and let me tell you 6 reasons why you should embrace the seduction of saffron.
1. Ladies, let saffron touch you all over
Don’t be shy; Saffron isn’t there to judge. Next time you run yourself a charming bath with candles, try inviting saffron into the tub with you. According to the 2008 Fukui “saffron sniffing” study, it showed that cortisol levels dropped and estrogen levels rose significantly in women when sniffed. It’s said that it takes as little as 20 minutes for saffron to plant its seed of erotica in you, which would be perfect timing for a relaxing bath before being intimate. Twenty long undisturbed minutes of rejuvenating saffron aromatherapy and you’ll be devilishly aroused for the evening; Yes, I’m in!
2. Gents, saffron loves you too, don’t worry
Many studies have shown that anywhere from 30mg-200mg/day over a course of time is effective in aiding erectile dysfunction. Saffron is full of antioxidants that heighten men’s fertility. It helps with sperm flow, and the mobility and quality of sperm is heightened.
3. Saffron has antidepressant properties
Saffron tends to have aphrodisiac effects on both men and women, says Massimo Marcone.
It helps with anxiety, PMS, insomnia and insulin resistance. And may increase frequency of sexual encounters after consuming the spice.

When I’m aroused, I do not feel any sort of negative depressed feelings so this makes sense. Ha!

Saffron, the sexiest aphrodisiac as its side effects include ones appetite to be suppressed (non sexual appetite of course) along with mood – and penis – elevation. Carotene crocetin decreases anxiety and stimulates sexual desire, as it has relaxing effects on the body and elevates the libido exponentially.

Alexander the great has been known to put saffron in his rice and tea for daytime excitement. Cleopatra would bathe in it before seeing her many lovers, and the romans were kind enough to sprinkle it all over newly-weds bed, to ensure extra exciting consummation that evening.
