Background: Natural and herbal ingredients have long been used to treat burns. Care, treatment and rehabilitation in burns, as a challenge, poses huge costs on people, family and health system. The current study aimed at assessment of saffron petal extract in the treatment of heat-induced burn wounds in rats.

Results: The highest healing effect was observed in 5%, 8% saffron, SSD 1% ointment and control groups, respectively. Furthermore, no burning scar was observed in saffron groups.
Conclusion: The saffron petal extract at a dose of 5% showed a significant effect on the healing of second degree burn wounds in rats. Further complementary studies on other extracts and doses are recommended
