edited June 2011 in General
After the release of our last tobacco based Gingerbread snuff "de Kralingse Snuif en Specerijen Compagnie" release another tobacco free snuff powder. This Potpourri No. 2 is composed of 6 different flowers, 4 different herbs and 5 different spices. As extra flavours neroli and essential oils of majoram, bergamot, lavender are added. The recipe originates from Germany around the second half of the 19th century.

    I really like your Potpourri snuff, so this should be pretty interesting! Thanks for all your hard work Jaap.
  • Congratulations on another revival!

    Was it (originally) a medicinal snuff or something for pleasure? Any other history surrounding the recipe?
  • @puffpuff: Yes it was originally a medical snuff. In German it was called "Buntes Nießpulver" designed to induce sneezing which was a way to clear the head and get rid of "zinkings" and bad fluids. In my experience however you have snort firmly to induce that sneezing.

  • Loved the No.1 and looking forward to check this out.
