Directions

  1. Peel oranges and lemon.I like to peel them in a spiral so that each rind stays in one whole piece,and then cut each spiral lengthwise into 3 or 4 thinner spirals.You can peel them any way you like.Don't bother with removing the white pith,since you won't be eating this anyway.
  2. Bring water,rosemary,and citrus rinds to a rolling boil.
  3. Reduce heat slightly and let boil gently for 1 hour.
  4. Turn off heat and let steep 30 minutes-1 hour.
  5. Pour into your bathwater and relax!
