Warm Safflina is a type of plant and material found in Breath of the Wild, Age of Calamity, and Tears of the Kingdom.

Breath of the Wild

"This medicinal plant grows in hot regions, such as the Gerudo Desert. It's warm to the touch and increases your cold resistance when cooked into a dish."

— In-game description

Warm safflinas are found almost exclusively in the Gerudo Desert, predominantly, north and northwest of Gerudo Town. A few of them can also be found in the East Gerudo Ruins. Very rarely, they can be spotted growing alone around Eldin. Additionally, a few can be found in a small grove east of Satori Mountain, below the large apple orchard. Warm Safflinas are easily distinguishable due to their bright red hue.

They can be sold to shop-vendors all over Hyrule for 3 Rupees each. They can also be used for Orange Dye at the Kochi Dye Shop in Hateno Village.


If Link cooks a Warm Safflina by itself, it will create Spicy Fried Wild Greens. This dish will not recover any health, but it will grant Link Cold Resistance. This is particularly useful around the Gerudo Desert, as the desert becomes unbearably cold during the nighttime. When cooked with fruit or meat, Link can create Spicy Steamed Fruit or Spicy Steamed Meat respectively, which can recover Link's health, while also giving Link some Cold Resistance.


This material can be used to enhance Link's Armor in the game. In particular, Warm Safflina can be used to enhance the Snowquill Set. The Level 2 upgrades of the Snowquill Tunic, Snowquill Headdress, and Snowquill Trousers each require three Warm Safflinas, along with five red chuchu jellies.
