In the midst of these pressures, finding moments of relaxation becomes paramount for our well-being. In this blog, we’ll embark on a culinary journey, exploring winter stress reducing recipes that not only warm the soul but also incorporate the soothing touch of nature. And to add an extra layer of tranquility to these delightful creations, we’ll introduce Relaxium Calm, our calming supplement, as the secret ingredient that elevates each recipe to a realm of winter relaxation bliss.

Recipe 1: Lavender-infused Hot Chocolate


  • 2 cups milk (dairy or plant based)
  • 3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 tablespoons honey or maple syrup
  • ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¼ teaspoon dried lavender buds
  • (Optional) Cinnamon stick and mini marshmallows
  • Pinch of sea salt


  1. In a small saucepan, heat the milk over medium heat until warm but not boiling.
  2. Whisk in cocoa powder, honey or maple syrup, vanilla extract, dried lavender buds, and a pinch of sea salt until well combined.
  3. Allow the mixture to simmer for a few minutes, ensuring the lavender infuses its calming aroma.
  4. Remove from heat, strain out the lavender buds, and pour the hot chocolate into a mug.
  5. Garnish with a cinnamon stick and mini marshmallows (optional).
  6. Sip slowly, savoring the soothing blend of chocolate and lavender.

Why it works:

Cocoa contains compounds that promote relaxation, and the addition of lavender is known for its calming properties. By incorporating lavender into this comforting hot chocolate, you not only indulge in a delightful winter treat but also give your body an extra dose of relaxation support to reduce feelings of stress.
