Miron glass jars are available now. This glass will best preserve the potency of any food or herbs you store inside.
What is Miron Glass?
Although it looks black from the outside, Miron glass is a violet glass. If you look at it with a light source behind it, you’ll be able to see this.
While it has only come into modern consciousness recently, first being produced in our modern age back in 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 herbs there are a few natural things that can degrade their quality; light, air, and heat.
For these reasons, we recommend you keep your herbs sealed in their package and in a dark and cool cabinet. For most, there is no reason to refrigerate but a regular shelf will suffice. Our black bags help to keep the light out.
The most important thing for you to do is to keep the air out as much as possible. In some of the herbs, we even add in an oxygen absorber to help with this.
Clear glass lets in the entire light spectrum. Cobalt and amber glass block some of it.
Miron glass only allows in the violet color, as well as UV and infrared light.
What does this mean? Testing shows that it can dramatically improve the shelf life and potency of various products.
You can see what just two months of storage in the different jars did to these chives. Which one would you want to use?
Not only will these taste and smell better, but that also means more of the medicinal properties and nutrition is preserved.
Another test showed what seven months did to a cherry tomato.
We thought about packaging all of our herbs in Miron glass but it would increase the cost, not to mention shipping.
Instead, we’ve decided to make these available standalone. You can buy one, or a few, and use them to store your Lost Empire Herbs, as well as much else.
They’re reusable, washable, and will last forever as long as you don’t break them.
Three Sizes Available
150 mL – This is a small jar that will be able to hold many of our herbs in the 30-60 gram range. Think Tongkat Ali powder, Lion’s mane or the 30 g sized bag of schizandra. In addition, you can add your Phoenix and Thors blend capsules into this size of Miron.
250 mL – This jar is a little wider than the above but the same height. It holds all 100-gram bags of herbs. Gynostemma tea is a great one to save in Miron glass to preserve freshness! Albizia and Dong Quai are also 100g offerings. A full container of Pine pollen capsules will fit in a 250 ml jar. 1 and another half bottle of Tongkat Ali capsules will fit in here.
1 L – This can fit any of our 250 gram bagged herbs with room to spare. These would be for “Megadose” sized herbs like our largest bag of Pine pollen powder, 120g size Schisandra, or our Goji berry or Longan berry bags. Or if you decide to stock up, you could double up on smaller bags for safekeeping in this largest Miron jar.
