My favorite color is violet.
I first claimed this in kindergarten. Everyone seemed to have a favorite everything, from colors to animals. I hadn't thought about either of those.
Hmm...a giraffe is tall like me, so that'll be my favorite animal, I thought. My favorite animal has changed (goat? dog? tiger?), but my fave color hasn't.
I'm not sure why I chose violet, although I'm pretty sure I first claimed purple and it evolved from there. My teenage computer screen name was riotgrrl_in_violet.
And just a few weeks ago I temporarily colored my hair indigo, which when mixed with my dirty blonde hair, came out a gorgeous deep violet - subtle, but so cool.
But this post isn't about hair or favorite colors, but it is in a way about the power of purple.
When Infinity Jars reached out to me to ask if I'd like to try a few of their glass jars, screw top jars, and glass cosmetic bottles, I first thought, why do I need more containers? But then I looked through their offerings and it hit me - why wouldn't I need them?
1) My kitchen containers consist of flimsy throw-away plastic bins.
2) I refill plastic liter bottles with water and continue to use them for longer than I probably should.
3) keeping organic material fresh in this humid, tropical climate is about as easy as pulling off an acrylic nail.
So the fine folks at Infinity Jars let me pick out a few items of my choice, which ended up being the 1 liter Round Glass Bottle, the 5 ml Glass Screw Top Jar, and the 250 ml Square Glass Bottle with Pour Spout.
Infinity Jars pride themselves on their durable deep violet glassware, and let me tell you, this stuff is thick, strong, quality glass. It's not heavy or bulky though, which is nice, because I don't want to tote a hefty water bottle to the beach or dance class.
I've been using the water bottle non stop (buh bye plastic pieces of crap) and filled the oil container yesterday.
I'm thinking the little screw top jar will be perfect for preserving loose leaf tea and dried herbs and flowers. It might even prove to be a wonderful little magic tool, like my spell/wish box.
The secret to our jars' impressive preservation capability is found in the deep violet glass. This type of pigmented glass blocks out harmful visible light rays (these rays quickly degrade organic matter), while still permitting two beneficial light rays that are laboratory proven to preserve and extend the shelf life of goods (for as long as 2 years!)
If you're interested in the science behind Infinity Jars, check out their laboratory test results.
Every container has an airtight seal, ultra violet filtering, is scent proof, and naturally preserves and rejuvenates freshness! My pack of goods even came with jar labels and a cleaning cloth.
The power of violet prevails!
Do you have any preservation tips? And tell me, what's your favorite color?
