History of violet glass

The appreciation people have for the special protective qualities of violet glass can be traced back to the ancient Egyptian civilization. Even then, valuable essences and healing natural products were kept in gold and violet glass containers. Even with the alchemists during the middle ages there are signs that people of that time were aware of the special quality the shimmering violet glass had. The advancing industrialization and the emergence of new packaging materials, especially plastic, meant that violet glass and its amazing properties faded into obscurity during the last hundred years…

Violet glass provides many remarkable benefits:
· Superior protection from light degradation
· Increased shelf life
· Energizing effects on organic molecular life
· Natural preservation and refinement of healing properties
· Aesthetically beautiful packaging

Let’s have a look how this is achieved:

light spectrum

The sun emits visible and invisible light parts. The visible spectrum becomes discernable to our eyes when white light is channeled through a glass prism. At the same time though, light also contains a part which is invisible to our eyes and lies in the radius of electromagnetic wavelengths of infra red and UV-A.
Sunlight enables all plants to grow but if they continue to be exposed to the sun after reaching maturity, the effect of the light changes and accelerates the molecular decaying process.

There is a large spectrum of packaging materials available nowadays, of which many are permeable to visible light.
The above graphics show to which degree light can penetrate the different materials. Brown glass lets the visible light of the sun trough and provides not enough protection to the substance inside the glass. The results for green and bleu glass where about the same. The both provide none or heavily reduced protection of light penetration. The leak of protection causes a disruption of the frequency and that can quicken the decomposing of products. Plastic containers are in contrast with glass porous. Because of this oxygen can get trough. The oxidation that arises by that has a negative influence on the substance and results in an energy loss.
The biophotonic Violet glass works like a natural filter that completely blocs the damaging rays from reaching the ingredients but lets in the sunlight that protects and improves the quality of premium and sensitive substances: electromagnetic wavelenghts of UV (a) and FAR infrared (IR). This unique combination offers optimal protection against the ageing processes that are released by visible light, thus lengthening durability and potency of products.

The secret of Violet Glass is based on the violet spectral range (720 - 770 Bio herz) which can permanently activates and energizes the molecular structure, and the healing energies of substances stored in the Violet Glass doesn't "escape".

In October 1997 the Institute of Dr. Dieter Knapp in Mittenwald, Germany clearly confirms the effectiveness of Violet Glass. After 36 days of storage in amber glass (Photo A), a distinct energy loss of the globuli of the contents occurred because the amber glass did not protect the contents from the light. In Violet Glass (Photo B), the energy is preserved because the Violet Glass protected the contents from the light. The contents are strong, harmonious and vibrant.

The photos clearly prove how important it is to store healing substances in Violet Glass, especially in the categories of vegetable oils, homeopathy, flowers remedies, tinctures, essences, energy rich food supplements, and essential oils. Recent research by Prof. F.A. Popp and Dr. H. Niggli, 1997/1998 proves that solar energy in our food is essential for our health. Solar energy enters our cells in the form of Bio-photons, the smallest physical unit of light. Bio-photons provide important information for the complex life process in our bodies. The Bio-Photons have a strong regulating and balancing energy and put the organism into a higher vibration or order. These Bio-Photons are extremely sensitive. Dr. H. Niggli's readings show that Bio-photons noticeably decrease in conventional packaging such as amber glass, green glass, blue glass, aluminium foil, plastics, and other synthetic containers. Violet Glass maintains and even enhances the high energy of the bottle's contents for a long period of time. Late 1997, the Institute of Dr. D. Knapp tested different spirulina samples. Fresh tablets from the same production were packaged in different containers. After 4 weeks the results were measured. The results speak for themselves. See the images below.

The sample in the violet glass shows a strong and dynamic energy field. The samples in amber glass and plastic container show a clear energy loss. Ever since the beginning of glass production (app. 3,500 pre Christ) exclusively violet or golden containers/bottles have been used to preserve precious salves, oils, essences and alternative medicines. Today, thanks to science, we know that life (energy) is best preserved by Violet, which no other spectral range can compare. In 1851 Jakob Lorber's (Graz, Austria. 1800-1864) edition "Healing Properties Of Sunlight" (Die Heilkraft des Sonnenlichtes) was published. In this volume he points out that violet glass is the ideal storage container for healing remedies and other substances that are sensitive to light.

Besides, Violet glass is also aesthetically beautiful.

I personally recycle this awesome jar to store my favourite spices, butter, honey, etc. Remouve the inner lid, wash jar and lid thoroughly then dry. The jar is now ready to be re-used to preserve and enhance the food you love. Back to Naturissima range.
