KALAMA Botanicals, a division of the KALAMA Foundation, includes oils for both personal use and Lomilomi. In keeping with its purpose, the Foundation is privileged to have been trusted with herbal formulas used by Native Hawaiians for centuries. Kanaka Maoli believe that all ailments are unique to the individual. Therefore, the healing modality used should in itself be unique.
These formulas are guarded with respect for their healing qualities and contain oil from the Kukui. Ancient Hawaiians knew the value of the Kukui. The ability of the oil of the Kukui to penetrate the layers of skin and form a protective coating is its primary function, enhancing the uniqueness of our products. Scientists have assumed it is indigenous to Hawai'i, having discovered traces of Kukui pollen in geological deposits.
The Kukui oil used in these formulas is produced in Hawai'i. Proven through time to be a healing element for skin disorders and a promoter of healthy tissue, the oils available through KALAMA Botanicals are indeed a part of Hawai'i itself.
WAIOMANA means “WATER OF POWER” or “POWERFUL WATER”. This collection is a set of six personal oils designed to revive the body oils and chemistry of the individual. The formulas are a mixture of traditional Hawaiian oils, including the oil from the Kukui, used to ameliorate the body.
This set of oils is designed to allow the individual to apply them incrementally, thus, acclimating the oils to the body. Combinations of oils will differ for each person. The oils are numbered in order of potency.
The WAIOMANA Collection has been known to have positive results with skin ailments such as: atopic dermatitis, rashes, eczema, psoriasis, rosacea, seborrheic dermatitis and minor skin burns. When first applying the oils, you may notice a skin breakout or an inflammation in the immediate area or another area. If this occurs, pause for a day before reapplying the oil. The breakout is occurring because the body is healing itself. IF THE BREAKOUT OR REDNESS CONTINUES STOP USING THE OIL.
One of the amazing benefits of these oils is the ability to retard the aging process. It creates a glow to the skin with its re-moisturizing capabilities and allow skin discolorations to fade.
These oils, when used as an all-over body lotion, will protect the skin from the harshness of the elements. Hawaiians have used the oils as a protectant on babies as well. The WAIOMANA collection is readily absorbed and leaves the skin feeling smooth and silky.
BECAUSE OF THE POTENCY OF THESE OILS, THE INDIVIDUAL SHOULD ALWAYS START WITH WAIOMANA #1 AND WORK UP TO THE HIGHER NUMBERS.
KU HINA brings both the masculine and feminine entities together to heal the body. This collection is a set of LOMILOMI oils designed to revive the body's chemistry.
LOMILOMI is a Hawaiian healing art taught through the Kalama Foundation's Educational Branch, HALAU O LIMALOA, by a Kahuna Lomilomi.
These oils can be used in alternative massage techniques such as Healing Touch, Reiki, and Swedish Massage. The oils are named in order of potency, the first for the earth, then for the hotter places on the five larger islands.
EARTH - WAIHONUA
KAUA’I - WAIOMANA
O’AHU - WAI’ANAE
MOLOKA’I - WAIMAUNALOA
MAU’I - WAIKAUPO
HAWAI’I - WAIKA’U
In the Lomilomi process, heat energy is generated helping the body heal itself. When applied in Lomilomi, the oils act as a healing agent, helping to heal from the inside out.
When used in Lomilomi, these oils have shown effective results with skin ailments, muscle pain and cartilage discomfort. Initially, a skin breakout may occur or an inflammation in the immediate area or another area. If this occurs, pause for a day and then resume application. This indicates that the body is healing itself. IF THE BREAKOUT OR REDNESS CONTINUES, STOP USING THE OIL.
BECAUSE OF THE POTENCY OF THE KU HINA OILS, THE INDIVIDUAL SHOULD ALWAYS START WITH WAIHONUA (EARTH) AND WORK UP TO THE OTHERS.

"I’ve been using the Kalama oils since 1995 and think that they are absolutely magical. Use as a massage oil, moisturizer and soothing rub
for all sorts of skin irritations, aches and pains."
"My son Randy has been afflicted with psoriasis since he was an infant. We had exhausted the traditional medical treatments for Randy. He had not had any improvement for over 2 years. So I spent weeks surfing the web, reading books, talking to people looking for a nontraditional treatment. I am extremely thankful that my search sent me to the KALAMA Foundation web site. For those who don’t know psoriasis is a chronic disease that can be devastating. Because of Randy’s personality he doesn’t let many things get him down. I didn’t fully realize how affected he was emotionally by the psoriasis until a few weeks after starting the treatment with the oils he said to me, 'Mom, I don’t think I’m gonna be a rotten head any more'. Not many things have touched me more that those words. Thank you for making that happen."
"By the time we were heading home, my face had peeled leaving a deep red, almost purple color to my skin. I was not looking forward to the lecture I expected from my husband. While in the Denver airport, I suddenly remembered that I had those two little vials of oils, the ones we received at the retreat, and put them both all over my face. By the time we landed, although my face was still red, it just looked like a little sunburn!! The color was almost normal! I stopped in the rest room, added a little makeup, and voila - my husband never noticed a thing!"
