Potpourri-a short history
Dried scented plant material has been used in rooms since ancient times in a variety of ways, It was common practice for the French in the early 17th century to use Potpourri mixture to scent their homes. The herbs were left for a day or two to become limp, then layered with coarse sea salt. Later on spices would be added to the mix until a pleasant fragrance was achieved. The finished potpourri was set out in special pots with perforated lids to perfume rooms. Modern potpourri consists of any decoratively shaped dried plant material with strong natural and synthetic perfumes added
