– Aloe vera gel/juice
– 3 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
– ½ cup cocoa or shea butter
– 3 tablespoonswitch hazel
How to prepare it:
Mix well 3 tablespoons of witch hazel and 3 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar. Then, add the aloe vera – half a cup if using the gel or ¼ cup if you are using aloe vera juice.
Next, add half a cup of the melted shea butter or cocoa to make a thick mixture. Mix all the ingredients together with a blender for about 30 seconds. The resulted lotion needs to be smooth and easy to spread. If it is not too thick, but runny, add more melted cocoa or shea butter. Then, mix the cream again.
Put the mixture in the fridge for 20 minutes.
Apply the lotion on the affected areas once or twice daily. It will reduce the swelling or the varicose veins and sooth the area sooner than you think. The swelling will reduce after a week of frequent use.
