Iris Root

Posted on


Iris florentina

Also known as orris root. Iris root has astringent, healing and protective properties. It has a pleasant fragrance, and historically has been used for oral hygiene products such as tooth powders and pastes, and as a breath-freshener.

It is believed to improve the moisture and elasticity of the skin. Iris root is astringent and refreshing, and has a detoxifying effect on the skin.

For skin care products, use an iris infusion - 30g dried root to one litre water. Use in skin toners and in creams and lotions.
