Back In Stock!  Orris Root (15% Irones), also known as Orris Butter, is soluble in alcohol or oils. Above ground Iris germanica is a lovely flower often referred to as bearded iris.  Although a beautiful flower it is the roots that are the source for extracting this marvelous essential oil.  Orris Root with high irone content is considered a top fixative in perfumery with its soft violet-like aroma that is best observed when highly diluted. 

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 with 1% and 3% Irones is not pure and is soluble only in fixed oils.  Our Orris (15% Irones) is PURE and soluble in both alcohol and fixed oils. Orris Root 15% Irones is highly revered by perfumers for its unique powerful violet-like note fixative qualities. A VERY small amount goes a long way!

We dispense Orris Root by gram weight. Sorry no free samples of this product.  We suggest purchasing a 1 mL sample of this rare oil.

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

Contraindications: None known
