[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!
WHAT IS A POMANDER?
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.
HOW TO MAKE ORANGE POMANDER BALLS?
Get as many oranges as you want and stud them with whole cloves. That’s it! So simple and easy✌️
HOW TO MAKE IT LAST AND REMEMBER?
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.
