Dry the perspiration. Take a normal bath after about an hour of the end of the exposure of the affected parts to the sun. Similarly Flax seed / Linseed oil when charged in Red bottle and massaged daily is useful in curing arthritis, rheumatism.
While massaging the affected parts with the Blue bottle charged oil, spinal cord must also be massaged, from top to bottom, even if it is not directly affected. Similarly, if hands or feet have become crooked, those should be covered with red paper all round and exposed to the morning sun. When sunshine is not available or cannot to utilized then sit in front of a 60/100 watts bulb (no tube light) exposing the massaged part for double the time.
At night while going to sleep, massage the affected parts with the charged oil and apply heat with hot-water rubber bottle for about 20 minutes. Keep the feet warm. Do not walk after this. Red bed linen and red dress are recommended for the night.
For preparing sun-charged oil, take a glass bottle of the prescribed colour. Fill 1/2 of it with oil. Cork it. Put it on a wooden desk and in an open place exposed to the direct rays of the sun. Keep it there for a period of 40 days. It would be better if the bottle could be shifted inside after sunset. Shake the bottle once a day. Exposure of the oil to the rays of the sun for a period longer than indicated above increases their potency. Oil exposed for over a year is called "Magic Oil".
