Orris Oil

Oil Orris In Tuscany and other parts of Italy large areas are given over to the cultivation of three species of iris. Iris flormtina, I. germanica, and /. pallida, the roots of which when dried and powdered have a delicate odour of violets, and are widely used in the preparation of the violet powders of commerce. These plants are also cultivated in other parts of Europe, in Morocco, India, etc., but Italy is. still the chief source of supply.

The fragrant violet odour of orris is not perceptible in the freshly-gathered roots, but gradually develops in them after drying, probably through some chemical process analogous to that^ which takes place in the development of the odour in oil of almonds.

The earliest essences of violets consisted of alcoholic extracts of the powdered root, but as these also contained inert substances simultaneously extracted from the root, they lacked the purity of odour of a solution of the essential oil.

The substance obtained by distilling powdered orris root with steam consists of a semi-solid mixture of the essential oil and fatty constituents of the root carried over mechanically. By subsequent treatment the solid inert parts may be separated, leaving a liquid volatile oil in which is concentrated the violet-scented constituents of the root. This product has an intense and, extremely delicate odour of the fresh violet and fetches a high price in the market. It is used commer- cially in the preparation of the finest scents.
