Sit around kids its fact time

Those masks were used by doctors. They placed nice smelling things in the nose of the mask, (for example flowers) because it was thought that the plague and other infections/diseases were caused by/carried through bad smells (e.g. faeces smell and often spread disease).

They put foods or objects with strong odors in their mask because they thought it would repel the disease.*
