There are two interconnected systems of veins in the legs—the deep and the so-called “superficial,” which are near the surface. It is the latter which are prone to the unsightly and painful condition known as varicose veins, in which they become swollen because the valves aren’t working properly or the muscular tissue lining the walls of the veins relaxes, sometimes as a result of a hormonal imbalance.
Although they are not dangerous, varicose veins do cause a great deal of discomfort when you stand, swelling in the feet and general fatigue, and in bad cases the veins rise from the surface of the skin giving it an uneven texture, sometimes with darkened, knotted areas. Inflammation can occur, and varicose veins are prone to bruising and varicose ulceration.
General massage may cause damage to the fragile capillary wall, but as essential oils can be highly beneficial by lessening the pressure on the defective valves you can apply them, but only when using a particular massage technique. Please note that you should not use other massage techniques with this condition. Grip your ankle gently and using the whole of the hand, sweep upwards in one gentle movement, using one hand only.
We offer a body butter formulated especially for varicose veins and it can be kept refrigerated for the coolness that some love on their aching legs and to extend the shelf life to about 6 months. We also will offer this in a essential oil blend as well. The choice will be yours. These are made to order so expect a little longer shipping time.
*Be patient, give it time, depending on the severity of your legs, it could take three months to a year but you will have noticable changes all along the way!
Also, this formula stimulates circulation and could keep you up at night.....try using it earlier in the day if this happens.
