Essential Oil is used to enhance the scent of potpourri. If it wasn't used the fragrance would dissipate very quickly. Only things like cedar will hold for a while. Potpourri is designed to be placed in a bowl or other type dish in an open area. The fragrance will then permeate the air and make the room smell like the given fragrance.
