Oh the pressure. The pain. Please, don't make me stand here much longer. Varicose veins are no fun. They're a result of weakened vascular walls that enlarge and fill with fluid. Sometimes they are painful, sometimes they are not.
The herbs in this cream are designed to help soothe, tone, and strengthen enlarged veins. Use it for varicose veins, spider veins, haemorrhoids, anal fissures, inflamed skin, or cracked and painful skin. I have used this in my clinic with good results. Will it cure varicose veins? No, but it will help. Will it make haemorrhoids go away? No, but my goodness it will help. It can help with bleeding haemorrhoids and anal fissures. As always, with any bleeding, please consult your physician.
New Zealand Manuka is used to help heal and tone variscosities.

Yarrow is a brilliant astringent and anti-inflammatory helping to tighten veins and decrease blood stagnation.

*Please note that all balms, salves, & creams are packaged in glass containers. We do not use aluminium pottles, even though it would be really cool. Aluminium is a metal linked to Alzheimer's disease, dementia, & early osteoporosis, just to name a few. It loves to settle in the myelin sheaths which surround nerve tissues and in the fatty tissue inside bones. So, apologies, no metal containers & no plastic ones, either. Plastic chemicals are linked to autoimmune diseases, endocrine dysfunction, and some cancers. Since aluminium containers are lined in plastic, well, you get the drift.
