You might be wondering why we’re so excited about our new jars, made of MIRON violet glass. Well, as you know, at SuperFeast we’re committed to making a superhuman effort to ensure our herbs get to you in the best condition possible, and stay as potent as possible, so you get the most benefits. We take all our herbs daily, and we’ve been testing the MIRON violet glass for a few months now and we truly love it!!
Although the MIRON jars appear black, they’re actually a really gorgeous, deep violet/purple. You can see the colour when you hold them up to a light source.
While MIRON has only been available to modern folks relatively recently (since 1995), evidence suggests that violet glass was used by the ancient Egyptians as well as medieval alchemists to protect special herbs and materials.
When it comes to our tonic herbs there are a few natural things that can degrade their quality: light and air are the worst offenders. We love our resealable Kraft bags, but we know that sometimes they don’t seal properly after a while (especially if you’re messy with the herbs…things can get sticky!) and they just don’t look that sexy on the kitchen counter, do they? But the MIRON looks AMAZING on the kitchen bench, and it has a couple of magic tricks up its sleeve!
MIRON violet glass protects your herbs from the light - from the entire visible spectrum!! But the MIRON glass still lets in ultraviolet (UV), infrared (IR) and violet lights...which have amazing healing properties on the human nervous system (more on that below). What this means is that herbs stored in MIRON violet glass are safe from degradation for up to three years. How’s that for longevity?
You can see what just two months of storage in the different jars did to these fresh green chives (none of them were refrigerated and they were exposed to direct sunlight daily).
Another test showed what seven months did to a cherry tomato (room temperature, normal lights).
I don’t know about you guys, but I’m definitely a fan of green chives and red tomatoes!!
And in another test, beekeepers from Germany showed that the taste and aroma of honey is beautifully preserved in MIRON glass. Enzymes and other active ingredients do not break down as with other types of storage containers, check out this below!
And finally, the Institute of Dr. D. Knapp tested different spirulina samples. Fresh tablets were packaged in amber, plastic and MIRON violet glass jars, Four weeks later the results were energetically measured. See the images below…look at that sexy MIRON spirulina!
In Taoist and Yogic traditions, violet light shows the highest vibration frequency (720 – 770 billion Hertz) of all colours, corresponding exactly to the vibration frequency of our central nervous system.
In his book “Heilkraft des Sonnenlichts” (“Healing Properties of Sunlight”), teacher, musician, and mystic Jakob Lorber (Graz, 1800 – 1864) specified why homeopathic remedies could only be preserved within the violet energy range. According to his research, remedies stored in these glasses will not only be preserved for decades but will also be enriched/activated. Tests done during the last decades confirm this thesis. We’re not suggesting you keep your herbs for decades (we think you should ingest them!) - but it’s cool to know that their energetic essence is being preserved, no?
These jars are super precious (and expensive!) and we’d highly recommend you re-use them if you can. If you want to re-use them for herbs, you can buy in bulk and just top up your MIRON glass jar, storing the rest in the freezer for a refill down the track. We’re even thinking about selling empty jars so you can fill your own jars from the bulk bags…let us know if that’s of interest to you.
We’d love to hear your feedback on the jars - please comment below or email email@example.com - and we hope you love them as much as we do.
The current landscape demands us to work, work, work. To go harder, faster. More is everything. Rest is for laggers.
We keep on banging on about it here at SuperFeast HQ - we are huge on slowing down. On getting back to the basics, on taking time to breathe, feel and just be. The effects of stress are not worth it!
Sure, maybe it IS easier living and working from one of the most beautiful places in the world - Byron Bay ;P, but we came across this list and had to share it with you. We promise, there will be something in here for you!!
