Saffron Absolute–Natural Perfumer’s Staple


Saffron absolute’s energetic properties are profound.  It has been a beloved spice by the “truth-seekers” of India; those initiates who chose their inner truth above the transient things of life.

Saffron itself has come to stand for truth, the kind that lies beneath all life.  It can help us see beneath the surface, and access the deeper truth beneath any situation or event.

What are absolutes, and how do I use them?

It is also called Ankh (the same as the Egyptian Ankh, which symbolizes Eternal Life or Immortality).  Saffron flowers’ energy field is constantly regenerating itself, thus the association with immortality.

This energy field has been described as a “collection of rays constantly folding over each other”.  It continually folds and expands, over and over again, each side remaining in equal proportion to the other at all times.  The top half is always equal to the bottom half, and the left side is always equal to the right side.

When the aroma of saffron is introduced into the human energy field, it is imitated as our field attempts to do the same thing, beginning to develop all of the polar opposites equally.  Brain hemispheres,  sides of the body, upper and lower parts, etc. all begin to match and equalize.  Even the inner self and outer body begin to align, creating more truth in our actions and being.

Saffron should be used in micro amounts, just a tiny bit every day, in order to receive the energetic benefits.  It supports the integration of the Light Body in advanced stages of ascension.

It is best to dilute this absolute for energetic use.  It can be diluted as much as 200 parts carrier to 1 part of 20% absolute dilution.  (That would be about 100 ml or 4 ounces of carrier with 1 drop of saffron absolute dilution).

Coconut oil is a good candidate for further dilution.

As an energy medicine, using a similar dilution makes a wonderful treatment for relieving trauma and negative emotional energy.  It restores the internal balance in the emotional body without losing the understanding of life lessons that came through the trauma.  For this purpose, apply the dilution to throat, heart, or solar plexus energy centers.  Also apply a tiny drop or two under the nose and inhale deeply.
