Varicose veins are enlarged veins that may appear red, blue or flesh colored. They often look like cords and seem to be twisted and bulging. Spider veins are similar to varicose veins but they’re smaller and closer to the skin surface. They are most often seen in the legs and are caused by different reasons such as obesity, pregnancy, standing for long periods of time, inactivity and hormone imbalance. Whatever the reason you have them, I’m sure you would like for them to disappear or at least be less visible. I have a home remedy for you to use as a vein-soothing massage.

Varicose Veins Soothing Massage

Combine these ingredients in a bottle and use 1 teaspoon at a time to massage your legs twice a day. Use one hand with a firm but gentle stroke on either side of the veins (never directly over them) starting at the ankles and moving upward. Elevate your legs after massaging.

 

 

 


If your neck is showing signs of age, you might want to give it a special treatment of the following synergistic  blend of essential oils. Use 10 drops of rose, 7 drops clary-sage, 10 drops lemon, and 20 drops carrot essential oil blended well with 1 teaspoon  of evening primrose oil. Gently massage this mixture into the skin and leave it on for at least ten minutes before wiping off the excess oil.

After a long winter of turtle-neck sweaters and woolen scarves, the neck will benefit greatly if you slough off dead skin cells, brighten up and tone the neck and prepare it for a treatment oil as discussed in part I of essential oils for neck care. Mix 1 teaspoon of ground almond with 1/2 teaspoon of jojoba oil into a paste and rub it all over the neck and chest area in upward movements. Leave this on for 10 minutes then rinse it off with water followed by a rinse with the following tonic water: 1/4 teaspoon cider vinegar, 1 tablespoon spring water, 1 teaspoon witch hazel, and 2 drops lemon essential oil. Mix the lemon essential oil with the witch hazel and then blend that with the other ingredients. Rinse most of the paste off with water and then add the vinegar tonic water to the final rinse until all the almond paste is gone.


Have you ever seen a woman whose face was beautiful but when you glanced at her neck, it marred her appearance? No matter how much make up and concealer is on the face, if you don’t take care of the delicate skin on your neck, it will be like a lovely delicate rose on a stalk that can not support it. The neck is one of the first places the body begins to show its age.  Crinkled skin, loss of elasticity, wrinkles and double chins all lead one to look older even though great care is put into maintaining the good looks of the face. You can try to keep your neck covered with a scarf but that is not practical and, thankfully, the neck responds extremely well to essential oil treatments.

The essential oils to use for neck care are rose, geranium, clary-sage, lemon, lemongrass, black pepper, or carrot. Use any one of these oils added to a carrier oil like jojoba, evening primrose, or avocado to begin your treatments.  The neck is a very delicate area and must be cleansed with the same care you use on your face. Add one drop of one of the above essential oils to each 3/4 teaspoon of your usual cleansing cream. Then each night before bed apply the following blend: 8 drops of pettigraine, 3 drops of orange, 10 drops carrot oil, 14 drops palma rosa, and 5 drops of lemon blended well with 3 teaspoons jojoba oil, 2 teaspoons wheatgerm oil, and 2 teaspoons of avocado oil. Leave this on for a few minutes and then wipe off any excess with a tissue before going to bed.

Nobody wants to get old, and more importantly, nobody wants to look like they’re getting old. That’s why there has been much progress recently in finding ways to have youthful-looking skin and natural ways to make yourself look younger, so that you can look better and feel better about yourself.

One of the best ways to keep yourself looking young is through anti-aging skin care, which fights off wrinkles and unwanted lines on your face. Even something as simple as keeping away the wrinkles can be enough to take off the years. Finding ways to remove varicose veins and having smoother skin can also be helpful when it comes to looking more youthful and vibrant.


I love to find some great skin care products that make it easy for me to keep my youthful glow alive. Finding the right skin care really makes a big difference and I am always looking forward to getting some great products that will keep me confident and looking my best as I take on each busy day. I have been loving my anti-aging cream lately.

My cream has helped me to stay young-looking and have the natural beauty that I value so much. We live in a society that values youth so much and it seems like everyone is always trying their hardest to look and to feel young. When I have a good cream by my side, I don’t have to stress out as much about having aging skin.

My anti-aging cream makes it really easy for me to feel my best every day. When I look my best, I automatically feel my best and my confidence soars. It seems like the day just goes much better when I am looking my best. I love feeling beautiful as I go about my day and with my skin cream, I can ensure that I don’t lose my youthful glow.


Your circulatory system moves blood throughout your body. This includes the heart and blood vessels as well as the lymphatic system. The lymph nodes cleanse the body of waste as it moves cellular fluid through the system. These lymph nodes are located all over your body but most particularly in the throat, groin, breasts and under the arms. These areas act as centers for filtering your blood.

Lemon and grapefruit essential oils are a couple of the best for massaging the lymphatic system areas. Use these oils in a carrier oil such as jojoba oil which is excellent for spreading and lubricating. Sweet almond oil is also a popular carrier oil for massage and would work well for this purpose. Stress related heart problems are responsive to a sedating massage using the qualities of neroli, lavender and/or ylang-ylang. The essential oils marjoram and ginger can help normalize high blood pressure and studies have shown that sniffing neroli essential oil can lower high blood pressure.

Pregnancy is both a beautiful and stressful experience for women. Since the baby is so connected to the mother, when the mother is stressed out her baby may feel stressed out as well. Taking a relaxing soak with aromatherapy bath oils can put mother and child in a good frame of mind.Not only will a relaxing soak with bath oils reduce stress, it also surrounds the mother with beautiful smells. Many pregnant women report sensitivity to smell. Doctors recommend mothers surround themselves with pleasant smells to ease the mind and prevent nausea.

You can dilute 5 drops of any of these essential oils – tangerine, grapefruit, geranium, chamomile, ylang ylang, lavender in 1 teaspoon of shea, grapeseed, or almond oil to make a wonderful bath oil. If you or a loved one are going through a difficult pregnancy and have a hard time relaxing, consider giving bath oils a try.

Pretty Feet

I want to help the ladies and gentlemen who are wearing sandals after months of being cooped up in socks and boots because they don’t realize how dry and cracked their feet look to others! First, exfoliate your feet by using a salt or sugar scrub in the shower to help remove dry and dead skin, eliminate the appearance of cracked heels, and start the healing process. If you also have calluses on your feet, gently use a pumice stone to start sloughing the callus down but do it gradually over a week or more.

The second thing is to give your feet a deep moisturizing treatment with either raw shea butter or shea butter cream by coating your feet with the butter and then putting your socks on before going to bed. You can do the deep moisturizing treatment as often as you like but don’t forget to moisturize your feet after each shower too. The finishing touch for feet that look good in sandals is to give yourself a pedicure and, if you like, put on your favorite color nail polish and enjoy the summer!


A friend of mine who had breast cancer tells me that she believes she got the disease from using over the counter deodorants all her life. I don’t know if this is true or not but I’ve heard it before and I’m not willing to take any unnecessary chances  with my health so I use all natural deodorant products. You can get a pre-made natural deodorant but below is a recipe for a natural deodorant you can make at home using essential oils. This product is all natural and smells wonderful.

Natural Deodorant Spray

  • 4 drops black spruce oil
  • 4 drops cedarwood oil
  • 4 drops cypress oil
  • 4 drops lemon oil
  • 2 drops petitgrain oil
  • 4 fluid ounces aloe vera gel
  • 4 mls solubol (dispersant)
  • 1 size 4 ounce pet spray bottle
  1. Combine the essential oils, aloe vera gel, and solubol in the 4 oz spray bottle.
  2. Gently shake the bottle back and forth until blended.
  3. Spray under your arms up to 3 times a day or as needed.

For safety’s sake, patch test your blend on a small area of skin before using.

Kid Safety: This blend is safe for kids 5 and over.
