Calefacient is an adjective that means making warmth.

Our word of the day combines the Latin words for ‘be warm’ and ‘make.’ In addition to being used as an adjective to mean ‘produce warmth,’ calefacient can also be used as a noun that refers to something that produces warmth. An example of the word as an adjective is: When someone is suffering from heat loss that bad, they desperately need a calefacient agent like a blanket. Too much cold in extreme cases can be deadly.
