HISTORY: Pomanders - Everyone believed that illness was carried on the evil foul smelling airs and they were every where from open sewers running in the streets to unwashed bodies. Plus, the mind is easier to clear when a pleasant order is inhaled, allowing one to concentrate on their prayers and meditations. Fill with cloves or cinnamon sticks and hold it to your nose to protect your body and soul!
Before rosaries were standardized in the late 16th century, they were a reflection of the individual who carried them. Often saint's metals, crosses, bells, shells, relics, holy water vials, pomanders, pilgrim badges and other items of spiritual significance were incorporated into the rosary. Extant rosaries and paternosters in museums show numerous items hanging from the bottom and/or a metal or object at each paternoster in a rosary.
