Horse Chestnut (Aesculus)

Horse Chestnut (Aesculus)

The use of Aesculus in venous disorders has been recognised for a long time. It is the seed of the Horse Chestnut tree, instantly recognisable to many children as the conker, that is used medicinally.


The constituent of Aesculus which has been most studied is aescin. It has the ability to improve the tone of veins, reducing leakage into the surrounding tissue. Often varicose veins are more troublesome in warm weather and starting a course of Aesculus during the early summer can prevent the distressing symptoms emerging.

Those suffering from varicose veins will also benefit from ensuring that constipation is not a factor.


Do not use alongside bloodthinning medicines such as low-dose aspirin or anticoagulants such as warfarin.
