Stress Ease Hot Cocoa
Updated on January 09, 2023

In our modern age, the hustle and bustle of daily life can cause undo pressure. Pile on a little winter cabin fever, and you’ve got yourself a recipe for stress, with no relief in sight.

That’s why we’ve crafted a stress-free cup of hot chocolate infused with our Stress Ease Cinnamon tea, featuring skullcap, one of our favorite herbal allies to relieve stress and promote relaxation.* This is a perfect herbal treat to enjoy alone to reduce the stress of the season, or double the recipe to kick back with a friend or lover. If you really want to get in the spirit, we recommend following up with a plunge in an herbal bath, infused with lavender and rose petals.
