Product description


The iris root, taken from the iris pallida or germanica, is a traditional teething remedy recommended by midwives and mothers. Babies can find teething very unpleasant. The gums often become red, swollen and very sensitive. During this time, babies should be encouraged to bite often and with force. Saliva makes the iris root soft and elastic, helping it support the teeth as they break through. The iris root should be tied to your child’s wrist using the cord made from cotton from organically controlled farming.

  • Fix the cotton cord of the violet root to your baby’s wrist (just attach it, do not tighten) or use a dummy chain clip to fix it at the baby’s clothes. In this way the violet root cannot drop to the floor and become soiled.
  • Let the baby hold the violet root or hold the root yourself, while your baby is chewing on it.
  • We do not recommend using iris root for longer than 10 minutes at a time.
  • For hygiene and safety reasons, please exchange the iris root after one to two months of use.
