Other Common Names
Florentine Iris. Botanical Name: (Iris Germanica florentina)
Description & Use
Orris Root Granules are made from the root of a variety of iris. The aroma is sweet, fragrant and has a faint cosmetic-like smell. The flavour is similarly sweet with a touch of bitterness. Orris Root Granules are used along with coriander seed and juniper berries, and other exotic botanicals to make gin. The powder is also a fixative when blended with essential oils when making pot-pourri, however its most exotic application is in the Moroccan spice blend known as Ras el Hanout. Orris Root Granules are quite strong, so they are best used sparingly.
