Iris







At Poggio Pratelli we continue the traditional cultivation of the  Iris, called “giaggiolo” in the Tuscan countryside.


 Our irises thrive in arid terrain, sun, wind and rain are sufficient for their healthy growth. The rhizome of the blue/violet variety (Iris Pallida)  is used to prepare cosmetic products and the essential oil extracted from this type of iris has an important role in the perfume industry where it is used to lock in other more volatile scents.


We produce an organic moisturizing cream for face done with the  roots extract , parfumed with the precious esetential oil, and a softenig hand cream, reach in iris extract.
