Note: Not all essential oil brands are the same, and you get what you pay for. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that you are using oils from pesticide-free plants. Also, the brand should use 100% pure, high-quality essential oils that do not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask a trusted friend to find a brand that is reputable. Buyer beware.

I have varicose veins on the back of my knee and upper calf from 3 pregnancies. They sometimes feel "achy" and bother me.

I rubbed the Aroma Siez oil blend neat on the veins, then Peppermint (slightly diluted w/oil) over the top. I felt immediate relief from the aching and heavy feeling, and this lasted for several hours.

The appearance of the veins also seemed to improve (possibly from reduced inflammation).

This oil combo is especially helpful if I'm going to be on my feet for a long time or if they're aching before I go to sleep at night.
