How to Make a Pomander

pomander

Busy hands are happy hands, so today we made pomanders. What are they, you ask? A fragrant little crafting project that I have enjoyed since childhood. All you need is an orange and cloves. My boys thought it was pretty fun too.

Here, a definition from Merriam-Webster Dictionary:

po·man·der
noun
Etymology: Middle English, modification of Anglo-French pomme de ambre, literally, apple or ball of amber

1 : a mixture of aromatic substances enclosed in a perforated bag or box and used to scent clothes and linens or formerly carried as a guard against infection; also : a clove-studded orange or apple used for the same purposes
