Manoranjitha (Artabotrys odoratissimus)

Manoranjitha (Artabotrys odoratissimus)

Manoranjitha is a plant native to India. It grows naturally throughout the country and is known for its medicinal properties. The leaves of the plant contain chemicals called triterpenoids, which are responsible for their anti-inflammatory and antifungal properties.

This herb is also commonly used to treat skin conditions such as psoriasis, eczema, dermatitis, and dandruff. In addition, it helps prevent hair fall and promotes hair growth.

How does Manoranjitha work?

The active ingredient in this herb is artabotrytoxanthone, which is an extract from the leaves of the plant. Artabotrytoxanthenones have been found to be effective against the fungus that causes dandruff. They can also help reduce inflammation, itching, and redness associated with psoriasis.

The herb works by inhibiting the production of certain enzymes that cause excessive cell growth. These enzymes include 5 alpha-reductase, epidermal growth factor receptor, and protein kinase C. As a result, the cells stop dividing and start dying off.

In addition, they inhibit the activity of certain hormones that stimulate cell division. This prevents hair follicles from growing new hairs.

Each solvent has its own unique properties, which allow for the extraction of certain chemicals. Some common solvents used include hexane, ethanol, acetone, and water.

Steam distillation is one of the most commonly used methods for extracting essential oils. It involves heating the plant material until all moisture evaporates. Then, the essential oils are collected after cooling down.

Cold pressing is another method for extracting essential oils. In this process, the plant material is pressed between two plates. The essential oils are released as the pressure increases.
