Horse chestnut

Familiar for its conkers, horse chestnut has been one of Britain’s favourite ornamental trees for the last four centuries. It also has significant medicinal uses, particularly for supporting weakened veins, as in varicose veins, haemorrhoids and capillary fragility. It is used for two Bach Flower Essences and in commerical quantities for allopathic and homeopathic remedies for irregularities of the veins. It also has some surprising other uses.
