So, what is carthamus?

Carthamus, also known as safflower, is a plant species that is primarily grown for its oil-rich seeds. The bright yellow to red flowers of the carthamus plant are not only aesthetically pleasing but are also used in traditional medicine for their anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties. Carthamus oil, which is extracted from the plant's seeds, is commonly used in cooking and as a natural dye for textiles. Rich in omega-6 fatty acids and vitamin E, carthamus oil is also used in cosmetics for its moisturizing and nourishing properties. This versatile ingredient has a mild, nutty flavor and is a healthy addition to any dish.
