Genetics is one of the main factors of varicose veins, meaning that your chances of developing the condition are greater if someone from your family had the problem. Varicose veins mostly affect women in their late 20s, and may cause bigger problems if left untreated. Age, circulation problems, hormonal changes and lack of physical exercise are also risk factors for varicose veins.

The good news is that the condition can be treated with a simple natural remedy, which has been recommended by people who have tried it. The recipe consists of apple cider vinegar, carrots and Aloe Vera – here’s how to prepare it:


Half a cup of Aloe Vera pulp

Half a cup of carrots

Apple cider vinegar


Chop the carrots before putting them in a blender, then add the Aloe Vera and mix well for a minute. Add the ACV afterwards and store the mixture in a container.


Apply the mixture on the affected areas and lift your legs up for about 30 minutes. Rinse with cold water in the end. The treatment should provide results in just a few weeks, and will cure the condition in a couple of months.

Massaging your legs can also help, but you should never put pressure directly on the veins. Massage the surrounding area gently and slowly move towards the hips. For best results, lift your feet at a 45-degree angle and use juniper or cypress essential oils as they are local stimulants and can relieve fluid retention in the legs while improving the circulation as well.
