Potpourri for Havdalah?


The spices one uses for Havdalah may not be spices which are used to dispel or obscure a bad odor; the spices must be spices which are used to create good scents.

For example, one could not use spices which are placed in bathroom areas to "freshen" the space. One who accidentally used such spices did not fulfill his obligation.

(Code of Jewish Law Orach Chaim 297:2; Mishneh Berurah 297:3)

Have a great day,
