Pomander Balls are attractive ornaments that have been used in centuries. This ornament is commonly used as moth-repellant in closets and as a decoration at home. In the olden times the pomander balls are made using a fruit and studding it with cloves and then rolled in a mixture of spice then dried. There is a variety of fruits that can be used in making these ornaments such as oranges (traditionally), limes, apples, hard pears and lemons.
The pomander was originated from a French language “pommed’ambre” that means apple of ambergris. This is commonly used as an ornament around the neck or the waist that works as a repellant for infections or to help mask undesirable odor. This is normally cased in gold, silver, wood or ivory in the past
Nowadays pomander can be made at home and can function as an ornament or may be used as a present in the holidays. Small balls can be utilized as an ornament on trees or on wreaths by wiring it in the decoration itself. The larger balls can be used as decorations in the household as well.
Pomander are characterized by a spicy aroma that will help create a likable ambiance in the cooler months.
What you will need is:
Tips for scenting:
A Pomander' fragrance lasts for a very long time, even years. In case the scent fades, too soon, you can apply orange essential oil with cloves on the fruit with a paint brush. This will give a tropical scent emanating from both orange and spices. The suggested temperature ranges to use a pomander ball are 18-22 degrees Celsius or 65-75 degrees Fahrenheit. It is in these temperatures that the ornament will emits stronger scents.
Tips for hanging:
Just lay out a crisscross of masking tape around the fruit and then follow the pattern with the ribbon or elastic band. Close the ends by sewing it and then make a loop that will allow the ornament to hang.
Pomander balls in a bowl are equally pleasing too. You will not need the ribbons if the ornament is to be used this way.
