Pomanders are an attractive way to add a fresh scent to your home. The Merriam-Wester on-line dictionary states the definition of Pomanders is: "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." They were popular during Victorian era to mask odors. You will find pomanders to be very versatile, not only do they add a nice scent, they repel moths. They are perfect to place in your closets and clothes drawers or simply arranged in a bowl on the table.
Citrus Fruit of Your Choice ( pictured are a lemon and orange )
When you choose your citrus fruit look for fruit with unblemished skin. You can use grapefruit, oranges, lemons, limes or any other citrus fruit you like.
With a sharp knife score a design in the skin of the fruit. Be careful not to cut to deep. You do not want to cut into the flesh of the fruit.
Insert the cloves close together in the scored lines. Don’t worry if the top of the cloves breaks off, the design left will still add interest to your finished project.
Over time, the pomander may lose some of its potency. You can perk it us by sprinkling a few drops of clove oil or the appropriate citrus essential oil on it.
