The orange-red flowers of safflower sometimes serve as a substitute for saffron, since they give a (rather pale) colour to the food.

Taken hot, safflower tea produces strong perspiration and has thus been used for colds and related ailments. It has also been used at times for its soothing effect in cases of hysteria. Safflower blossoms are used in tea form to treat hysteria, fevers, phlegm, and panic attacks. It is a strong cathartic, and also clears the lungs and helps phthisis (pulmonary tuberculosis). Safflower petals have been shown to have a lot of medicinal and therapeutic values. Indian safflower petal samples were analyzed for the red pigment carthamin, protein and oil contents. The petal oil (4.0–5.8%) was further analyzed for its fatty acids followed by alpha linolenic acid (15–19%) and palmitic acids (14–16%). Gamma linolenic acid, which has good therapeutic value was present to an extent of 2–3%; decanoic and dodecanoic acids (2–5%) were also present.
