Florentine Iris

Also known as Lily of Florence, it was so typical of the area around Florence that it was added to the coat of arms of the city of Florence. It was grown for its root (rhizome) that was used to produce a precious fragrance after aging for at least 3 years. The root of the Iris of Florence is also a natural remedy to protect and soothe the skin and mucous tissues. In the past, it was used to decongest the gums of children during teething. Today it is a very useful phytocosmetic ingredient to relieve skin irritation and redness, soften and moisturise the skin and encourage cellular regeneration.
