I have never made a nosegay, but I am aware of their interesting history and the uses of nosegays in history. In Europe during the dark and middle ages for instance, nosegays were used to block out the dreadful smells of filth in the villages and cities, which were at their worst in the summer. They were also thought to be a power against the bubonic plague and doctors had masks made with a nosegay attached. Nosegays used fragrant herbs and flowers that were powerful enough to block out the rotten and filth born smells of garbage, excrement and death. In places like India and China, nosegays evolved into incense that could perfume an entire building and were burned in abundance in temples and palaces. Though nosegays are not common today, they are easy to make. The common practice today is to either use a commercial deodorant or incense.
