Is it a harvest season in May? No. That’s a myth. It dates back to the beginning of the 2nd century.
The word “saffron” comes from the Persian word for “red” and “gold.” While the term “saffron” was used in Arabic, it is now primarily found in the Indian subcontinent and south-east Asia. The word “saffron” has three meanings:
1. Gold in the gold of the land.
2. Sacred Redness (as in saffron).
3. Red or yellow color when dried on the plants.
Gold originated around the 6th century B.C. but is known as saffron. After an explosion of exploration in the Arabian or Indus Seas, saffron was transported by camel (horse, donkey, mule, etc.) on a journey from India through Egypt and the Sudan to the Black Sea coast around 4th century BCE.
In the Mediterranean world, saffron was often used as a tonic and aphrodisiac and used as a colorant to color clothing. The color was sometimes used on garments of religious significance such as the head coverings used during religious ceremonies.
Gold and gold jewelry were also made by mixing golden powder or pure gold pigment (also called “golden thread”) with saffron seeds or leaves. Gold and copper alloy jewelry were also made of a gold alloy but often the amount of gold used would be significantly greater than the amount of copper.
2. Sacred Redness (as in saffron)
Saffron is a very precious plant. As its name suggests, it is said to have some sacred qualities for Hindus, Buddhists, and Jains. The Hindu sages (who are among the most sophisticated of the world’s cultures) regard saffron as the “Holy Stone of India.” During its ceremonial use, saffron often is sprinkled or rubbed on the forehead in connection with the Lord of the ceremony. Other religious traditions call it the “Red Stone of the God of Destruction” because it is so sacred and sacred that it is sometimes sprinkled on the heart or body during rituals to draw the evil spirits into the heart. The Indian word sanskrit is Sanskrit for “Red,” so to say is that it literally means to reden.
