So where does Potpourri come from anyway? The word is French and directly translated is – pot rotten. Kind of ironic since it is actually meant to be the opposite of a rotten pot. But over the years it has taken on new meaning and refers to dried plants and flowers used to bring fragrance to a room. I think of it as an older generation thing but this is a different type.
With the stovetop version, it is meant to be used for the day and throughout the week. Traditional potpourri is put on tables or in drawers and lasts for weeks and months.
