Varicose Vein Treatments

Many essential oils can be utilized in effective varicose vein treatments. Typically, these oils will improve blood flow, lower inflammation and hormonal imbalances, increase circulation and support the circulation system.

In addition, they can assist with weight loss, lower blood pressure, clear blockages, ease the pain and improve the strength of veins so that bulging and twisting will not occur.

We will discuss a few of these oils on this page.

General Instructions

Each of these oils can be used individually as outlined on this page but using oils in synergy gives you a better chance for improvement. 

In a separate bottle, mix 3-4 of the following essential oils and an equal amount of carrier oil. (50% oils to 50% carrier oil)
