Making Pomanders

pomander face

In Elizabethan times, people believed that the Plague was caused by foul smells, so they made pomanders to keep the air smelling sweet.

Yesterday, we made pomanders. This is Waif's in progress. I think this lovely chap will definitely keep the plague away this winter :-)

  1. Mmm. I can almost smell that pomander from here. I think Waif did a great job. Am going to have to get mine to make some - I don't think it will smell like Christmas without them.
    Looking forward to seeing you all soon.
