Varicose veins are tangled and enlarged veins which are located, often, on the legs. The main reason of their appearance is due to excessive pressure on the veins (prolong standing and sitting), but heredity also plays a major role.
Varicose veins appear more often in women than men, but, as I said before, anyone who has a standing position for hours can develop varicose veins.
Given the fact that varicose veins, most of the times, are asymptomatic, it often represent a cosmetic problem.
But, pay attention! If varicose veins are accompanied by pain, swelling or ulceration, you should see a doctor, because you may need to remove them surgically.
In case varicose veins or spider veins are only a cosmetic issue, then you may want to take a look over my grandma’s recipe, especially designed to fade away these tangled and unaesthetic veins.
So, grab the next ingredients and prepare your own ointment for those ugly spider veins:
– 10 cloves of garlic
– The juice of 1 lemon
– 1 glass of olive oil
– ½ glass of aloe vera gel
– 20 drops of rosemary essential oil
How To Prepare:
- First, peel the garlic and chop the cloves.
- Then, extract the juice from the lemon.
- Put both ingredients into a glass jar with the olive oil and shake them to mix them. Then, seal the jar tightly so that it’s airtight.
- Leave it to cure for 21 days in a dark place.
- Once the three weeks are up, pass the liquid through a sieve to remove the garlic. You can throw the garlic away.
- Add the aloe vera gel to the oil and mix them well to get a good ointment texture.
- Add the rosemary essential oil to improve the aroma.
How To Use:
- Each night before going to bed, apply this ointment for varicose veins over the affected areas and cover with a bandage or a cloth.
- If the smell doesn’t bother you, you can repeat this in the morning, too.
