Vein Relief Ointment

This cream is cooling and soothing for varicose veins, spider veins and hemorrhoids. The astringent properties of witch hazel water and oak bark help to shrink the veins, while yarrow and horse chestnut help maintain vein wall integrity.

1 cup aloe vera gel

2 tsp. horse chestnut leaf-infused oil

2 tsp. calendula oil

2 tsp. yarrow tincture

2 tsp. oak bark tincture

2 tsp. horse chestnut seed tincture

20 drops of rosemary essential oil (for varicose veins only, omit for haemorrhoids)

2 tsp. witch hazel water

Place the aloe vera gel in a bowl. Slowly add the oils, 1 teaspoon at a time, and whisk thoroughly.

Once combined, add the tinctures, one at a time, and whisk again, then add the essential oil and whisk. Finally, whisk in the witch hazel water. Place in a sterilised jar, seal, label and date.

Alternatively, use a plain base cream instead of the aloe vera gel, and whisk in the oils, tinctures and witch hazel water.

For optimal results, apply this cream twice a day, as well as taking internal circulatory herbs.

Shelf Life: Up to 1 year in a cool, dark place.
