Borago Lavender Lotion
This topical remedy is perfect for tired or heavy-feeling legs, varicose veins and leg cramps.
About the Ingredients: We combine the following healing herbs in a base of colloidal silica:
Witch hazel leaf distillate has a gently astringent action on the skin when veins have lost their tone. The branches of this small tree are pliable and may be used as dousing rods to find underground water, indicating its connection with the fluid element in nature and the human being.
Borage is a plant whose hollow stems and wrinkly leaves are covered with fine hairs and adorned with delicate blue-red blossoms – a picture of how the elements of air and light overcome the heavy impression the plant might otherwise convey.
The magnificent horse chestnut tree (up to 130 feet tall!) brings forth large smooth, shiny seeds. This tree has a dense canopy and shallow roots that enable it to tolerate wet soils. Horse chestnuts draw up and evaporate more water through their leaves than any other tree. Again, we see the gesture of overcoming heaviness and bringing form, both in the seed covers and in the beautiful upright, fragrant flower formations.
Yellow clover flowers every second year. The entire plant produces a sweet smell. Yellow clover can help relieve pain and inflammation due to vein congestion.
Directions: Apply several times daily to the legs, especially before retiring or after exercise, with gentle upward strokes. As varicose veins may be associated with an imbalance of the liver, see wellness remedy Chicory/Ginger Bitters.
