Keep the clothes in your cupboards and drawers fresh-smelling with this attractive pomander ball. It will also make a nice present.
To make 1 ball
- 1 whole orange or lemon
- 4 oz/115g whole cloves
- 1 teaspoon ground cloves
- 1 tablespoon orris root powder
Press the sharp end of the whole cloves into the orange or lemon until the fruit is completely covered. Mix the ground cloves and orris root together in a plastic bag, add the clove-studded piece of fruit and shake well until the orange is entirely covered with the fragrant, ground spices. Remove the pomander ball from the bag, wrap it in tissue paper and leave for 2 weeks. Finally, attach a piece of string or ribbon to the top and hang the ball in your cupboard.
