Apple Gels can be used from either the Pause menu or the Combat menu, providing that a party member is alive to dispense it. Another way to for characters in your party to regain their health is to rest at campfires in the overworld. Campfires are free to use and will fully restore the entire party's health, it is therefore advised that whenever you see one you take advantage of it by resting there for the night.

These sets of skills will not be unlocked naturally by leveling up characters, you have to complete a little mini-objective.

In Tales of Arise you will have plenty of opportunities to tackle optional boss enemies, these though can be deadly if you are not adequately prepared for the encounter.

As you are unable to see what level the enemy is before the confrontation, it is recommended that you save your game before these encounters. Once an optional boss has been activated, you will not be able to run away from the fight.
Reviving a member of your party that has been knocked out during a fight works the same way as healing them. You can get the character back up by resting them at a campfire or inn, giving them items such as Omega Elixer or a Life Bottle, or by using a Healing Arte. If you decide to use a Healing Arte it is important to remember that they use a lot of CP so make sure you have stocked up on CP-restoring Pineapple and Orange Gels to top off.
