The name Pomander comes from the French term “pomme d’ambre” — which roughly translates to “apple of perfume,” or round ornamental sachet. Pomanders originally took many forms, not just the clove and orange variety. In the past, they were carried by the nobility crafted in silver and gold inlaid with jewels and filigree. Pomanders, or the practice of carrying or wearing a pomander (often carried in a protective cage of the same name), were popularized in Europe around the late Middle Ages. At this time, pomanders were used for protection against infection, pestilence, and disease.
Although pomanders have been used for ages in religious practices and were sometimes made as religious keepsakes, the form we are most familiar with today, specifically, has its roots in pagan folk craft. A Yule tide tradition …a clove-covered orange, tied with a gold or red ribbon and sometimes anointed with oils, was originally a charm for recovery, protection, and good luck.
