[WATCHinHD] Hello Superfriends! I’m back sa balakubak! I love my home to smell like Christmas, so I made this cute and lovely orange pomander balls for Christmas. This orange pomanders are easy to make, which are simply oranges pierced by cloves the more you put cloves the better it will be. As the fruit dries it will releases a lovely fragrance. Pomanders make beautiful centerpieces, gifts for friends, tree ornaments, and air fresheners. Its smell really amazing and festive!


The word “pomander” derives from the French words pomme d’ambre, meaning “apple of amber”—a reference to the round shape of the object and the occasional addition of ambergris (an aged substance from the bile duct of a sperm whale). Strongly scented pomanders of ambergris were used in Europe during the time of the Black Death to (unsuccessfully) cover up and purify “bad air.” Also in in Medieval times, Medieval herbalists used pomanders—mixtures of fragrant, dried herbs in cloth bags or perforated boxes—to ward off illness or bring strength and good fortune.

Today, pomander balls are usually a lot simpler; most consist of an orange or other citrus fruit studded with cloves and dusted with other spices.


Get as many oranges  as you want and stud them with whole cloves. That’s it! So simple and easy✌️


If you want your pomanders to last use lots of cloves which are a natural preserving agent. The more cloves you use the more fragrant and good it is. The cloves will draw out the juices and they’ll shrink in size so don’t be alarmed if you see your oranges become smaller in size.

Hi guys! Its been a months now since I update my blog and I almost forget that I have a wordpress blog LOL. I realized  that I am so occupied these days with all of task here at home and if happens you live in a country side like us, well you know what I mean. Ugh!🤷‍♀️ It seems like our whole summer/vacation is none other than house-wood-garden and vice versa! plus summer here in Sweden is so scorching hot! and it makes me feel so lazy at times when #katamaran attack. But even though I am busy at times, I’d still manage to spend a little time watching some youtube videos at night 😉 and I find myself watching hundreds of soap making videos online. I also noticed that most of them started making soap as a hobby and turn it into a business after a years of soap making. Watching them making big batch of soap makes me think it is so easy especially those who make a fancy and perfumed soap with different kind of essential oils and herbs on it (and if you check my website history you will know that most of them is all about soap making site! oh I’m obsessed about soap).

Am I weird? that I find it so satisfying to watch them making colorful swirl, pouring and cutting their own home made soap 🧼 hahaha! It is so addictive that eventually, I decided that I had to try my hand at making my own soap… well why not.. right?

I bought my supplies in Organic Makers website

Soap making is something that has always amuse and interested me. I had been wanting to try it for a very long time but I didn’t know when and how to start it,  so I did some research, and found a lot of soap-making tutorials online and I spend late at night watching many youtube videos on how to make a soap from the scratch, how to calculate your ingredients and things to consider in making your first batch of soap. I can say that it is so challenging, exciting and fun! by the way I learn the basics of soap making and I think am ready! LOL.

So finally! I decided to buy my first ever soap making supplies in Organic Makers website 👈 (see picture below) and for those who don’t know what Organic Makers is, it is Sweden’s largest website for DIY organic skincare where everything you need in making skincare products is in there. They sell all natural/organic and sustainable ingredients in making skincare products plus they come  in much more affordable price.

There are also a few things in the photo that comes from my own kitchen. ( Spatula, electric mixer, wooden spoon, scale and gloves). I bought the safety goggles in Biltema.

Since the site also offer simple recipe too which is the: COLD STIRRED SOAP: CLASSIC BASTILLE SOAP WITH LAVENDER,👈 I decided to make this as my first intro in soap making because it is only a small batch of soap to start with  plus it is so cute and has lavender scent on it (good thing I love lavender too!) So I bought all the ingredients need in this recipe and whoa! it just came yesterday.
