Name your Bespoke Blend!
Do you know someone who has a tonne of essential oils and crystals and bottles and stuff that can whip up anything you want on a whim and a wish?
If not…find one! If you cant…then meet me!
My tribe name it an its theres! So today on my second edition of Blend For A Friend I’m making my mate Helen a blend which she says is for those pesky Spider Veins on our legs. She flicked the recipe over to me and Ive tweeked it ..Bespoke style ..Just for her! I use Essential Therapeutics Essential Oils. These are an Aromatherapist Grade & practitioner quality brand of oils. They are an Australian company and have been supplying Aromatherapists since 1984.
For starters Ive added some crystals.
A beautiful gentle healing crystal for blood circulation and heart problems. Rose Quartz improves the flow of blood in varicose patients. Also believed to be a fantastic blood purifier.
A bright orangy red stone it is the recovery stone. It improves metabolism and circulation. It expels toxins that accumulate around the spider veins. It is believed to help with production of new blood cells.
The nurturing stone. Relieves pain associated with large varicose veins and leg pain. Sunstone effectively cleanses and purifies the blood
Reknowned for helping with blood disorders and relieves pain.
An amazing stone that helps with inflammation of the veins. Citrine also boosts immunity and metabolism.
All together combined with equal parts Essential Oils of:
Controlling and bringing down inflammation not only in the affected vein will help heal it faster. Its important to include an anti-inflammatory essential oil to bring healing.
Venous Decongestant| Circulatory Stimulant
Is one of the most effective essential oils for reducing and preventing varicose veins. It strengthens blood capillaries, improves circulation, and reduces the aches and pains associated with varicose veins.
It dilates blood vessels and increases circulation. It also rebuilds and strengthens capillaries.
This will help decongest thick and stagnant blood that doesn’t flow easily in the veins which is caused by standing or sitting for long periods of time.
In a carrier of Rosehip Oil which is well known for toning the blood vessels which may help with circulation.
I let any blend I make stand and stew for 4 days prior to use to let the oils amalgamate together and synergise. Compounding their healing properties.
Caution: Not for use in pregnancy, yes you will have to wait until your veins are WAYYY worse and bubs is OUT before you can use this blend and not suitable for anyone under 5 (not that spider veins would be a biggy in this age bracket) but I need to say it for various reasons!
Has anyone tried a different blend that has been effective?
Other oil suggestions I would use are : Rose, Black Pepper , German Chamomile, Helichrysum and Yarrow!
