Rosemary, Lemon and Eucalyptus Simmer Pot Recipe | Polk County Moms


A blend of minty eucalyptus, citrusy lemon and earthy rosemary makes for a clean, relaxing and invigorating scent in the home. It’s perfect for this cold weather as the scents help ease congestion.

  • 2 lemons, sliced
  • 3 dried eucalyptus stems – remove leaves
  • 4 sprigs of Rosemary
  • 10 cups of water


  1. Slice lemons
  2. Remove leaves from eucalyptus stems.
  3. Combine all ingredients in a large pot and fill with water to cover. Crush eucalyptus leaves as you add them to the pot.
  4. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer.
  5. Simmer for 3-5 hours, topping up with water every 30 minutes as needed to cover ingredients.

***I have tons of dried eucalyptus stems from the holiday season. They were dried naturally – in my home. They were not purchased dried. My mom taught me to crush naturally dried eucalyptus leaves to release the scent. ***
