Essential Oil (Natural Aromatherapy / Minyak Atsiri)

Essential oil / Minyak atsiri murni adalah hasil distilasi (atau metode ekstraksi lain) dari konsentrat sari pati yang terdapat pada tanaman--dari akar, daun, bunga, batang; kecuali BUAH (selain jeruk-jerukan). Minyak atsiri bersifat volatil, atau mudah menguap saat terekspos udara, dan memiliki wangi yang kuat.
Minyak atsiri sangat berguna untuk terapi dan pengobatan; senyawa kimia di dalamnya antara lain bersifat anti-bakteri, anti-virus, anti-radang, dll. Berbeda dengan minyak nabati, minyak atsiri tidak terasa berminyak di tangan. Minyak atsiri memiliki konsentrat yang tinggi: diperlukan 8 kg mawar untuk menghasilkan 1 tetes atsiri mawar. Oleh karena itu minyak atsiri murni sangat berharga, memiliki khasiat luar biasa, dan kita harus berhati-hati menggunakannya.

Minyak atsiri The Soap Corner murni (pure) dan natural, hanya untuk pemakaian luar (topical); tidak dapat dikonsumsi. Untuk penggunaan ke kulit, ikuti aturan dilution yang benar, dilarutkan dengan carrier oil, seperti avocado oil, sweet almond oil, virgin coconut oil, jojoba oil, dll sesuai dengan takaran yang benar.
