Cayenne pepper is considered a miracle treatment for varicose veins. Being a very rich source of vitamin C and bioflavonoids, it increases blood circulation and eases the pain of congested, swollen veins.
Add one teaspoon of cayenne pepper powder to a cup of hot water and stir it well.
Drink this mixture three times a day for one or two months.
3. Olive Oil
Increasing blood circulation is essential to treating varicose veins. Massaging with olive oil can help increase circulation, thereby reducing pain and inflammation.
Mix equal amounts of olive oil and vitamin E oil and warm it slightly. Massage the veins with the warm oil for several minutes. Do this twice daily for one to two months.
You can also mix four drops of cypress essential oil in two teaspoons of warm olive oil and massage with this mixture.
Garlic is an excellent herb for reducing inflammation and the symptoms of varicose veins. It also helps break up harmful toxins in the blood vessels and improve circulation.
Slice up six garlic cloves and put them in a clean glass jar.
Extract the juice from three oranges and add it to the jar. Also add two tablespoons of olive oil.
Let the mixture sit for about 12 hours.
Shake the jar and then put a few drops of the solution on your fingers. Massage the inflamed veins with the solution in a circular motion for 15 minutes.
Wrap the area with a cotton cloth and leave it on overnight.
Repeat daily for several months.
Also, include fresh garlic in your diet.
Butcher’s broom is very helpful for relieving the aches and discomfort of varicose veins. This herb contains compounds known as ruscogenins that help reduce inflammation while constricting the veins due to its anti-inflammatory and anti-elastase activity.
