Horse chestnut trees originated in northern India and Greece but are now cultivated throughout Europe. A variety of the tree is known as buckeye in the United States.

Aescine is a mixture of saponins with anti-inflammatory, vasoconstrictor and vasoprotective effects found in the horse chestnut.  Aescin is the main active compound in horse chestnut, and is responsible for most of its medicinal properties.High-quality evidence suggests aescin is a safe and effective treatment for chronic venous insufficiency.

Main Functions
1.Treat inflammation and other ailments
2.Treatment varicose veins and edema
3.Treat diarrhea and hemorrhoids, and it was also used topically on sores and rashes.
4.Treat fevers and arthritis
Standardized horse chestnut extract is considered a valuable aid in treating varicose veins. It inhibits the enzyme hyaluronidase and makes veins less permeable and less fragile. Horse chestnut can improve the tone of veins and increase the flow of blood through them.

In folk medicine, horse chestnut teas were used to treat diarrhea and hemorrhoids. Traditional uses for the tea also included arthritis and rheumatic pain and coughs.
It was applied to the skin to treat some sores and rashes. But although a component of the bark (aesculin) is used in sunscreens in Europe, this phytomedicine is rarely used for topical application now.
