Throughout the game you will randomly come across these monsters encased in ice. There is one in the center and 5 or 6 circling. These are the Essence Monsters. Their loot dropped are Essences which allow you to craft new wearables with slightly better RNG. These monsters randomly spawn. So if you find one today it probably won't be there tomorrow.

Along the way, some enemies may drop a Remnant of Corruption. It is a red essence and the description says it corrupts essence monsters.

1. Obtain Remnant of Corruption (trade or RNG drop).
2. Clear maps until you find some frozen Essence Monsters. Don't unfreeze them!!!
3. If you aren't carrying the Remnant, portal home and go get it. Your return portal is good for 8 mins or so.
4. Standing next to the Monsters, hit cn_Y (use currency).
5. Choose the Remnant of Corruption.

The achievement will pop as soon as it is applied. I'd just do this one as soon as you get a Remnant or Corruption.

Below is a screen shot of some Essence Monsters I corrupted but still frozen.
