A Brief History of Potpourri

For thousands of years, cultures throughout the world have used the fragrances of flowers, spices, and herbs for ceremony, pleasure, and freshening rooms. During medieval times, potpourri was created by leaving herbs, spices, and other plant material in tightly covered containers to rot. Salt was also used to pickle and preserve. The process resulted in a strong, though not entirely pleasant, perfume. In fact, the French "pot pourri" translates in English as "rotten pot". As unappealing as medieval-style potpourri might sound, it was a near necessity in a time when homes were small, windowless, and lacking indoor plumbing.

Over time, these pungent pots fell out of favor. Experimenters figured out that handsome, open bowls of dried flowers and herbs were more pleasing, both to the eyes and nose. These lovely, aromatic bowls were popular among the aristocracy, who displayed them in rooms throughout their castles. Today, potpourri is an art that incorporates scent, texture, and color. It can be displayed in pretty bowls and color-coordinated to match any décor. When steamed in simmering pots, the warmth and moisture help the fragrance waft throughout the home.
