What are varicose veins?

Varicose veins can occur in various parts of the body but is most familiar in the legs. The abnormal swelling of veins in the legs is a symptom of a generally poor circulatory system, with a loss of elasticity in the walls of the veins and particularly in their valves. When they are functioning normally, these valves prevent blood from flowing back (away from the heart), but if their efficiency decreases, some blood may stagnate in the vein. The veins then become swollen and twisted, causing aching and abnormal fatigue of the legs. The tendency for the valves to fail in this way is sometimes inherited, but the main causes are prolonged standing, poor nutrition and obesity. Pregnancy may also cause the onset of varicose veins due to the increased weight, and pressure in the pelvic area.

Essential oils for varicose veins

One of the most important oils for strengthening the veins is Cypress, which should be applied, very gently, over the area of the affected veins. Massage can be used above the affected area of the vein (on the part of the leg which is nearer to the heart) but must NEVER be used below the varicosity, as this will only increase the pressure in the vein.

It may take many months to produce any improvement in the varicose veins, and as in any situation where prolonged treatment is needed, it is important to vary the essential oils used from time to time. You can replace Cypress essential oil by Lavender, Juniper or Rosemary.

Dosage

Cypress oil (or the other oils) can be blended in a carrier oil at 3% maximum.
