When deciding which oils to apply or which ones you need imagine them like building a house. The foundation, walls and roof are separate structures but combine to form a house.
The RMO (Royal Mana Oil) corresponds to the foundation it is the basis of the pain relief.
The Koali Huna Oil (Bone Oil), we'll call the walls, it addresses what the root problem is whether it is bone, nerve or tendon related.
The Ha'ola Oil (Foot Oil), we'll call the roof, it increases circulation allowing the body to bring in the healing minerals that it needs to take care of that area. Used in combination, they all work together to aid in healing and provide holistic pain management.
Sleep is the only time your body actually does any healing this is the most important time to use the oils.
Yes, pain management is fine but we want you to heal not just manage to get through your day. For pain you can apply many times during the day. You will apply more frequently when you first start using the oils and that is ok your body will let you know when it is ready to decrease the number of times you need to use it. After using the oils consistently for a month apply for 5 days and rest for 2 days. Why? As with all things you could build either a tolerance or an allergy to the oils and we are trying to prevent both. As a side note our daughter has used the oils almost daily for the last 7 years so has Richard's mom without problems. This suggestion is just for you.
The herbs have been in the bottles for some time when you start to use the oils. Awaken the oils and YOUR MANA by adding a few drops of oils to your hands and rubbing them together briskly warming the oils to body temperature and activating your MANA before applying RMO (Royal Mana Oil). Usually applied to the nerve center areas and the compensating muscle groups. You can apply it before or after you apply the oils Koali Huna and Ho'ola (Bone and Foot) to the painful areas. Mana is your energy and you should spend some time doing this step and should do it with the intent of healing. Some people go so far as to make it their own little massage time. I prefer to place the Bone and Foot Oils where I have pain and then do the compensating muscle groups because you catch a little of the other oils and get to apply them to the compensating areas without having to use any additional oil.
We have some people who will apply the Royal Mana Oil to the neck and shoulder areas and they say that it assist them with falling asleep faster and staying asleep longer. Nerve centers are found between the shoulder blades for the upper body and on the lower back between the hip bones for the lower body. If you have pain between those two areas then you will need to apply to both of the nerve centers to quieten them both down at the same time.
These are the muscles that try to keep you out of pain and are tired and must be given some love in order to let your body heal itself. Where are they? If you have pain to your right shoulder or hip the left side is the compensating muscle. Also take care of the area of discomfort at least 6-8 inches around the discomfort. If you have discomfort in your left shoulder or hip the right side is the compensating muscle.
For those with knee discomfort or injury, your calf is compensating and I usually apply some to the lower quads. Make sure that you get the entire knee area and there is no need for massaging the area just apply gently with the palm of your hand and adding additional oil as you need to get the entire area. This is why we give you twice as much of the RMO as the other oils you need to feel as if you have plenty of the oils to take care of yourself.
Foot discomfort - the calf is the compensating muscle and as long as you have the oils there are hundreds of things going on in those feet of yours and they take a daily beating so feel free to give yourself a mini foot massage with the RMO. Again apply gently to the calf with the palm of your hand. The oils absorb very quickly so by the time you start to stand it should be all good to stand on but each person is a little different so have something close by to wipe off excess oil off as needed.
For the discomfort that starts in your lower back and shoots its way towards your feet. Sometimes it makes it all the way and sometimes it stops any where from the hips down. I take the RMO and follow that silly shocking irritating pain all the way down and at least 6 inches past where the discomfort tends to dissipate. I find that doing this before long car trips (we consider anything over an hour to be a long trip) really helps my hips and back to stay comfortable. Again there is no need to massage the area a simple application using open palms will work just fine just stop every hand width and hold your hand there for a couple of seconds leaving your Mana (love) before moving on.
Hands and elbow compensating muscle groups is the forearm it is usually okay to massage the oils into the forearm and the hand.
