Varicose veins, also known as spider veins, happen when your blood circulation slows down. This often occurs in pregnant women, and overweight and constipated individuals. If left untreated, they will be more inflamed making them more painful, not to mention an unpleasant sight to the naked eye. There are several options that you can choose to treat varicose veins. The most expensive is having surgery to totally remove them. You can also have spa treatments or buy commercial creams, but that can be costly too. Creams and ointment can also be harsh to your skin due to chemically induced ingredients. If you want to use the most natural treatment, you can always create your own massage oil. It is cost effective and easy. To learn more about how to make your own massage oil treatment that is solely for varicose veins, here are some very simple steps that you can follow.
1. The first thing you need to do is to prepare all the ingredients. The things that you need are as follows:
- Cypress oil
- Chamomile oil
- Vegetable oil
- Palmarosa oil
- Carrot seed oil
- Cold water
- Lavender oil
- St. John’s wort oil
2. There are two treatments that you can create using these items. The first one is for those unsightly spider veins. In a small container or bottle, mix eight drops of cypress oil, ten drops of palmarosa oil, seven drops of chamomile and an ounce of vegetable oil. Gently mix everything together. Apply this twice a day for better results. Make sure you store it in an air tight bottle or container. It is very important that you do this procedure in a cool and shaded room. Avoid exposing the mixture in direct sunlight.
3. The second treatment that you can create is called a lavender carrot compress. All you have to do is mix three drops of chamomile oil, three drops of lavender oil, three drops of carrot oil, a teaspoon of St. John’s wort oil and one cup of cold water. Stir thoroughly. Get a soft clean sponge or cloth, soak it in the mixture then wring it out. You then place it to the affected area. Apply this treatment daily. It is advisable that you do this right before you massage it with the oil that you just made.
Just follow these easy and quick steps and you will be surprised with the results. For faster results, allot at least thirty minutes of your time when treating varicose veins. Create a daily schedule that constitutes fifteen minutes in the morning and another fifteen minutes at night. Clean the affected area with warm sponge. Pat it dry. You then put the oil and slowly massage it into your skin. Be very gentle. Do this for at least five minutes, every single day. Soon, you will notice the difference. And before you know it, you can start flaunting those amazing legs with sexy shorts and skirts. You can also give this to your loved ones and friends. They will greatly appreciate it when they find out that you made it for them. You can use this up to one month so it is highly recommended that you put an expiration date on the bottle. Store it in a dark and cool place and make sure it is not exposed to direct sunlight. Good luck and have fun!
