What Is A Varicose Vein
Just in case you are not sure what a varicose vein is. It is a vein that is twisted and swollen, and just below the skin. The blood that is going through the veins starts to pool because the valves (that push the blood through the veins) get weak (if you want to read more about varicose veins, go to the mayo clinic website). The reason that I am very familiar with varicose veins is because I stand most of the day as a retail pharmacist. And this is something that can cause those varicose veins.
Usually varicose veins happen in the legs, due to standing and walking. But varicose veins can pop up anywhere. In fact, hemorrhoids are actually varicose veins just on your rectum. With those veins being swollen, it causes a lot of pain. So I am going to give you an oil blend that has the best essential oils for varicose veins.
