A number of natural herbs and spices should be employed to get back the fragrance or scent back again. Cinnamon or even nutmeg can be put into the potpourri in order to give a new and fresh fragrance for the potpourri. Few sprigs of fresh new mint can also be added in order to enhance the aroma of the potpourri. Mint may also be used to help keep the ants away from houses of individuals.
