Not only is rosemary a lovely way to scent your home but it is antibacterial, which helps clear phlegm from the head and chest. It’s great to simmer on the stove when there are upper-respiratory ailments or headaches going through your house. Rosemary citrus simmer is also a wonderful uplifting nerve tonic and can help clear the mind. I always had a rosemary plant in my classroom for children to go rub their hands through when anxiety was about, it always seemed to help them.

In a shallow pan of water, I put a few sprigs of rosemary (or 10-15 drops rosemary essential oil), a handful of citrus peel (lemon and orange), sometimes a drop of lavender or eucalyptus depending on my mood, and let it simmer all day. When members of my little family are under the weather or in an anxious state, this simmer always make them feel better.
