NHT Apothecary Jars extend the life light-sensitive foods, oils, waters, herbs, and spices by deflecting harmful visible light.
Perfect in the kitchen, bathroom, dressing area and pantry!
Our NHT Violet Apothecary Jars have a special lid that is all glass. There is no rubber gasket to clean! The lid is angled to match the jar for a tight fit. Do Not Push the Lid Down! The natural weight of the lid will seal the container tight.

What is biophotonics (read a longer version here)?
The term biophotonics is made up of two Greek words: “bios” and “phos”. “Bios” means life and “phos” stands for light.From Wikipedia:
Biophotonics has therefore become the established general term for all techniques that deal with the interaction between biological items and photons. This refers to emission, detection, absorption, reflection, modification, and creation of radiation from biomolecular, cells, tissues, organisms and biomaterials. Areas of application are life science, medicine, agriculture, and environmental science. Similar to the differentiation between "electric" and "electronics" a difference can be made between applications, which use light mainly to transfer energy via light (like Therapy or surgery) and applications which excite matter via light and transfer information back to the operator (like diagnostics). In most cases the term biophotonics is only referred to the second case.
Biophotonics addresses medical and human science questions in the form of light based technologies. Both microscopic and spectroscopic methods belong to this, as well as the use of lasers to explain biological processes on a cellular level. With the main point of biophotonic research being the application of the characteristics of light to food production, pharmacy, bio-technology and medicine.
How Does Biophontics Works for the NHT Violet Glass Storage Solution?
The NHT Violet Glass use this field of biophontics to its advantage, by allowing the permanent stimulation and charging of the molecule structure of the stored substance. The violet glass is specifically desgined to deflect harmful visible light (red, blue, yellow, and green light), while allowing beneficial UV-range (stimulating) and the Infrared -range (charging) light through the bottle. This means the violet glass is a superior storage device, with “No other glass than NHT Violet Glass offer(ing) the unique combination of absolute light protection against light penetration if the visible range and light penetration of the UV/Violet- and Infrared range.” With various international institutes backing up the claims that NHT Violet Glass is "the best (for) conservation and optimal bio-protect(ion) available", when compared with any other storage device.
The qualities of the NHT Violet Glass are examined by several prominent institutions :
- by 'Interstaatlichen Ingenieurschule Neu Technikum', Buchs (St. Gallen),
- by 'Frauenhofer Institut for Food technoligie and packaging', München,
- by 'Internation Institut for Bio-Physik', Kaiserslautern (Photonenem. of Prof. Popp)
- by glass manufacturer 'Heinz', Kleintettau.
The institutes came to the same conclusion: NHT Violet Glass is for high-sensitive particles with distance the best conservation and has a optimal bio-protection.
Important Note: When you receive your NHT Violet Glass containers, please follow these simple points:
1) Rinse out the bottles and the glass tops because the last processing step is to grind the edges where the two meet. Be careful because it is ground glass.
2) Do not force the lid on. The lids are designed to go on easily using the weight of the lid as a natural sealer.
3) If the lids get stuck:
A: put the bottle in a pot with hot water near the top of the neck.
B: heat the water almost to a boil and the lid will pop off from steam pressure.
