Leg Soothing Lotion

This quick & easy cream is cooling and soothing for varicose veins and spider veins. The aloe is cooling, moisturising and soothing, whilst the horse chestnut helps to maintain vein wall integrity. 

  • 250g aloe vera gel
  • 20mls tincture of horsechestnut seed (Conkers)
  • 20ml conker seed or leaf infused oil
  • 20ml st. John's wort infused oil
  • 20 drops of rosemary or cypress essential oil 
  • 10ml witch hazel water (optional)

Place the aloe vera gel in a bowl. Slowly add the oils, 1 teaspoon at a time, and whisk thoroughly in between each addition. Once combined, add the tinctures, one teaspoon at a time, and whisk again, then add the essential oil and whisk again until all combined thoroughly. 

Alternatively, use a plain base cream instead of the aloe vera gel, and whisk in the oils, tinctures and witch hazel water.

For optimal results, apply this cream up to three times a day.
