I had never bought anything from Frontier and I had never bought or used orris root powder before but I am glad I did!
I bought this powder for making orange pomanders.
Who knows if this is true but I read online that orris root powder comes in 3 grades: white, off-white faint yellow and light brown.
The white is the best as it has no peeling in it and has a strong fragrance of violets.
The off-white faint yellow is the second best, it has a small amount of peel in it but still has a good fragrance.
The light brown has a lot of peel in it and has very little smell. Sometimes the brown one is bleached white so it looks like the good one.
The Frontier powder I received looks to be the off-white faint yellow kind. It is a very fine powder with a solid but not overbearing smell to it. I am glad I got this one because lol if it had of been white I would have wondered if it was the cheap bleached stuff.
I am just guessing but I would say the 1 pound bag is probably about 4 cups of the powder, which is probably a lifetime supply for me. I have very happy with my powder and Frontier.

-pomander tips-
I read several online recipes for the pomander spice mix and really nobody agreed on how much orris root fixative to use, so I read other orris root powder uses and found that when making potpourri the weight ratio is 20% fixative to 80% other ingredients.
I plan on making several pomanders so I combined nutmeg, cinnamon, and clove powder until I had 1 full cup of the spice mixture. Then I added 1/2 cup of the orris powder, which would give a 1/3 fixative ratio and it seems fine.

This is a great product. I used it to make my own potpourri. The results are very good. I always trust the products from this brand.

I am making sachets and potpourri from roses and lavender, and using lavender essential oil and rose perfumed oil. I think I used way too much of this stuff in my recipe, because in the sachets it keeps falling out of the little bags. I'm not even sure that I needed this stuff, but I got it anyway since so many of the "recipes" called for it. I'll use much less of it the next time. I was told I would find this in health food stores but Whole Foods doesn't carry it. Glad to find it here.
