Orris Root Co2 (15% Irones), also known as Orris Butter, soluble in alcohol or oils.  This Orris has a butter consistency and requires warming to liquefy. Above ground Iris germanica is a lovely flower whose roots provide a fixative in perfumery. 

We previously stocked Orris Root 10% Irones.  Repeated requests from perfumers led to replacing our Orris 10% with this exquisite Orris Butter with 15% Irones. Orris Root Co2  with 1% and 3% Irones is not pure and soluble only in fixed oils.  Our Co2 Select (15% Irones) is PURE and soluble in both alcohol and fixed oils. Orris Root 15% Irones is quite difficult to find and quite costly although highly revered by perfumers for it's unique powerful violet-like note fixative qualities. A VERY small amount goes a long way!

General use:  A natural fixative for perfume blends. Requires gentle warming to fully liquefy.

Contraindications: None known

Orris Root- Iris germanica
I am pleased with this CO2 essential oil. I mixed this butter with some drops of warm alcohol in order to use it. The oil starts out as a sharp herbal green, but after a few minutes of airing it tones down and becomes a spicey iris aroma, very pleasant.
