Bambang Pranoto, owner of Tamba Waras Kutus Kutus, said that this oil ingredient adopted the concept of the tree of life used in religious and cultural traditions.
“I also read the herbal medicine literature. So the old herbal medicine always uses the whole tree element in the herbs. That’s why we use tree elements, there are leaves, stems, flowers, fruits, roots, bark, and stems. We use all the recipes with a total of 49 items, “he said in Gianyar, Bali, Sunday (11/10/2015).
The material consists of 7 stems, 7 leaves, 7 roots, 7 flowers, 7 pieces, 7 essential oils and 7 aromatic oils.
“Why 7, because in Javanese philosophy the number 7 is pitulungan. So if there are many 7 there are double pits, “he said.
The specifications of these materials, such as ginger, turmeric, lasso, ginger are processed by infused or mixed with oil so that they experience heating and the juice is pulled by the oil into one which ultimately becomes an oil extract without damaging the material.
“Everything we crushed with stones traditionally, because once entered the modern world some elements will disappear. “Process 1 of oil, usually takes 1 day 1 night, then after finishing it will be left for 41 days,” he said.
