My mother had varicose veins and so far I haven’t had them, but I lived vicariously through her.

And I can tell you that I’m convinced that it’s a condition I rather not have, but if you know someone who has varicose veins this article may be of great help to them.

Varicose veins aren’t very visually appealing and can be painful.

Varicose veins are swollen, twisted veins that you can see just under the skin. They usually occur in the legs, but also can form in other parts of the body. Hemorrhoids are a type of varicose vein.

Your veins have one-way valves that help keep blood flowing toward your heart. If the valves are weak or damaged, blood can back up and pool in your veins. This causes the veins to swell, which can lead to varicose veins.

Besides the obvious visual cues, the physical symptoms can include a feeling of heaviness or tiredness in your legs. You may also have swelling of your feet, ankles, and lower legs that get worse throughout the day, but goes down overnight or if you elevate your legs.

This swelling is called venous stasis. Sometimes, your skin may be itchy. In some severe cases, ulcers or blood clots may develop. If you begin to have any of these symptoms, let your doctor know immediately.

One natural remedy that we really like for this are bay leaves.


Anxiety relief
Boosts immune system
Cleans out the colon
Relieves joint pain
Relieves headaches


30 grams bay leaves
250 ml olive oil


Crush bay leaves into a pulp and mix in the olive oil and let this mixture settle for 14 days. Shake the bottle well every other day. After two weeks press the mixture through a cheesecloth and use the liquid that gets strained through. Store the liquid in the refrigerator.

Other Tips:

1. Rub the oil on sore joints.

2. Rub oil into the temples for headaches.

3. Helps curb hunger if you digest 1 teaspoon.

4. Great to use on skin to clear up acne.
