Iris x germanica
Dried Orris Root is commonly used for perfumes, potpourris and sachets because of its unique violet-like fragrance.
Orris Root is often used as flavoring in candies or as a base for certain items like toothpastes and perfume.
The rhizomes of the Orris Root are harvested in late August and freed of the rootlets and brown outer bark. After that, the herbs are then dried and packed in casks for sale.
