Orris Root Powder:
Orris Root Powder is milled from the root of the Iris flower and has traditionally come from hills around Florence, Italy.
The Iris plants are grown in rows, often between vines, and are harvested by hand. The roots are cleaned and then left to dry naturally in the sun.
This means the root becomes extremely hard and it is this hardness that allows the root to be milled to such a fine powder.
