Then, prepare the cloves of garlic according to package instructions. After that, make little cracks with your cloves. This helps with the oil release and boosts the effectiveness of the ingredients in your blend.

In a small skillet or pot, combine the smashed garlic, cloves, and olive oil. Mix to infuse. It is recommended to gently simmer the mixture over low heat. You don't want it to boil, so just give it a warm bath so the components can get to know each other and impart their goodness to the oil.

4. Simmer for 10–15 minutes, then remove from heat to let the magic happen. Once the liquid has cooled, strain it to remove any solid particles. What remains is an exquisitely infused oil.

5. Put it to Use: Pour the oil into a clean glass container. If you're experiencing discomfort or varicose veins, try massaging this oil lightly into the areas that are most afflicted. The soothing properties of the substances can alleviate some of your pain, hydrate your skin, and put you to sleep for a little while.

If your symptoms linger after using this home remedy, it's best to consult your doctor before starting any new therapy. I wish you a day that is a bit more relaxed and comfortable!
