Personally, I don’t find varicose veins to be pleasant at all. Besides being painful, they are also quite unsightly especially in the summer when wearing a skirt or shorts. Nonetheless, varicose veins are caused by a variety of factors. Most commonly known are the older age, the pregnancy, or a general lack of blood circulation. Whichever the cause, these varicose veins are those dark purple lines that show up mostly on the legs. After giving up commercial products, I decided to try more of a natural approach to see what can I do. Well, keep reading because you are in for a treat. Check out this homemade body butter to get rid of your unsightly varicose veins.
The ingredients you will need to prepare this body butter for varicose veins are:
– 3 oz of jojoba oil
– 1 teaspoon of vitamin E oil
– 2 oz of shea butter
– 20 drops of helichrysum essential oil
– 20 drops of chamomile essential oil
– 20 drops of geranium essential oil.
Furthermore, you should also gather your supplies: a double boiler, a glass bowl and a hand mixer.
Here’s how you can make your own homemade varicose vein lotion:
In the double boiler, start melting and stirring the shea butter and jojoba oil.
Then, allow the mixture to cool by removing it from heat.
When it is colder, you can add the vitamin E and the essential oils.
Place it in the fridge and let it refrigerate overnight.
In the morning, your mixture should be solid.
Then, using your hand mixer, start blending and whisking the mixture until it has the consistency of a whipped cream.
Transfer it to your glass container and keep it at room temperature to use whenever you feel you need it. However, if you are afraid it will melt, you could also keep it in the fridge.
