Havdalah spices from Succot?


There is an appropriate custom of using ths Hadas (myrtle branch) from Succot for a Havdalah spice, so long as it retains a strong scent, thereby using it for multiple Mitzvot.

One may not do this during Succot itself, though, when the Hadas is dedicated for its regular Mitzvah.

(Code of Jewish Law Orach Chaim 297:4; Mishneh Berurah 297:8)

Have a great day,
