It is amazing to me as a designer and lover of color how a plants color correlates with its medicinal benefits. Safflower is a perfect example. Its vibrant red color directly effects, you bet ya, your blood!
In traditional Chinese medicine, safflower is considered pungent and warm, and is associated with the Heart and Liver meridians. Its functions are to invigorate the blood and release stagnation, to promote circulation, and to promote menstruation.¹
So when manifesting the MOON blend, safflower was an obvious for its menstruation properties but also when we created AWAKE we saw how majority of people who feel sluggish is because their blood is circulating too slowly.
