DIY Orange Pomander

A pomander? It’s a cross between a pomegranate and a salamander. In some countries maybe. But not this one. In actual fact it is a perfumed orange – from French pomme d’ambre, i.e. apple of amber, is a ball of perfumes. Yay!

They also happen to make wonderful Christmas ornaments, gifts and room fresheners. Organic holiday scent diffusers if you will? You don’t need much to make them and they’re gosh darned simple to create.

You’ll need: Oranges, ribbon, pins and whole cloves.

With the necessaries in hand, proceed to secure the ribbon in place with said pins. Tie a bow on top and proceed to push the cloves into the skin of the orange. Place them sporadically or create a pattern out of the cloves. Tie the ribbon directly on top of the orange or create a loop with the ribbon to allow for it to be hung up on a door handle or on the Christmas tree. The pomanders should produce a scent much like that of the fruit mince used in a mince pie – way to add to a festive atmosphere (and induce mince pie cravings all in one go).

Happy holidays dear readers. May they be filled with much joy and festivity.
