Varicose Veins Home Remedy: Sugar Scrub Recipe

Your heart is constantly pumping blood throughout your body. When blood is pumped down through your legs, it needs to fight gravity. In your veins, there are little valves that keep the blood from flowing backward.

When these valves get damaged, some blood can flow backward causing the pooling of blood causing the vein to stretch and twist. When this happens to a vein, it’s considered varicose.

For most people, varicose veins are unwanted legart. For others, varicose veins symptoms cause aching pain and discomfort. In this blog, you will learn how to use a sugar scrub as a home remedy that will help reduce the appearance of varicose veins and ease painful symptoms.

Hey, Katie here, I am an aromatherapist, and I created and regularly use this recipe! Having had two babies and knowing that varicose veins run in my family, I have a high likelihood of having varicose veins.

I can’t see any on the surface of my skin, but I would not be surprised if I’ve already developed some. This recipe is going to help support the health of my veins and reduce the likelihood that my legs get creative with vein art. 

What’s in the Recipe

This recipe is made with entirely toxin-free ingredients. Here’s the breakdown.

Sugar

It wouldn’t be a sugar scrub without sugar! Sugar is a gentle exfoliator, perfect to use on the body. It helps to rub away dead skin to reveal beautiful skin underneath.

Fractionated Coconut Oil

Fractionated Coconut oil for varicose veins? Yes, and it’s one of the ideal carrier oils which this recipe calls for! If you don’t have this on hand you can replace it with another carrier oil. Some other favorites in sugar scrubs are almond oil and avocado oil. 

Veins Essential Oil Blend

This blend uses Cypress, Juniper Berry, and Lemon Essential Oils for varicose veins and to support your circulation. It also smells soooo good!

It’s best to use a spoon to get the sugar scrub out of the jar. That way, you’ll prevent water from getting into it, which shortens its shelf life.
