We use Scientific Violet Glass for packaging our products loaded with nutritive, herbal and medicinal actives because violet glass is the optimal preservation method of potency and lifespan. Here’s what our suppliers have to say about violet glass and some interesting research they’ve done. Keep your jars and bottles once your Bio HerboloQi products are finished and use them for storing herbs or other goodies in your kitchen and home. The retail value is high at $15 for a one ounce jar. Keep them, Gift them.
“Sunlight enables all plants to grow. If they continue to be exposed to the sun after reaching maturity, the effect of the light changes and accelerates the molecular decaying process. Miron violet glass works like a natural filter that only lets in the sunlight that protects and improves the quality of premium and sensitive substances. There is a large spectrum of packaging materials available nowadays, of which many are permeable to visible light.
Violet glass blocks the complete spectrum of visible light with the exception of the violet part.
At the same time it allows a certain part to be permeable for radiation in the spectral range of UV-A, and infra red light. This unique combination offers optimal protection against the aging processes that are released by visible light, thus lengthening durability and potency of products.
In order to substantiate these advantages, Miron Violet Glass AG has conducted a series of tests themselves and in cooperation with scientific institutions. Further confirmation of functionality comes from the science of biophotonics.”

This answer also comes from our wonderful Violet Glass producers, who have researched honey, herbs, fruit and water storage in violet glass. We store our medicinal raw organic honey in violet glass too.
“Over the last few years, several scientific tests have been carried out with almond oil, spirulina algae, rose water, drinking water, olive oil, cereals, honey, fruits and other substances to see what protective quality Miron violet glass offers. A few examples are listed below:
Since 2008, Miron violet glass AG together with several beekeepers from Germany have been undertaking different tests to analyze the quality of honey which has been preserved in violet glass. The main focus of attention was the analysis of the active ingredient that inhibits the growth of seeds, and the aroma in honey. A definite conclusion is that the honey stored in violet glass doesn’t break down its ingredients, but actually conserves the taste, smell, color, structure and enzymes considerably better than in any other receptacles known or used until now.”
They also tested a cherry tomato and some chives. The difference is visible and also detectable via scent.
There is a 2 month duration test with Chives in Violet Glass, Brown apothecary glass, and clear glass. Each glass was put in sunlight for a few hours on some days and otherwise kept inside. There was also a smell test, and you guessed it, the chives that were still green in the violet glass smelled fresh. In herbal medicine, the smell test is one of the oldest natural methods for detecting active potency.
See the curious case of the anti-aging cherry tomato:
Cherry tomatoes were stored in clear glass, and violet glass for 7 months. They were kept at room temperature where sunlight could reach them. After 7 months, the cherry tomato stored in violet glass showed no signs of decay or spoiling. We have shared images and video of Miron glass experiments on our Instagram page @bio_herboloqi

We aim to use ingredients that have been produced with sustainable and organic farming methods. We are always looking for the most non-toxic, pesticide free and medicinally potent ingredients. We care about how the ingredient effects your health not only directly but also epigenetically and we care about how various farming methods are impacting our environment and soil sustainability. Your health and future is deeply connected to both.
Depending on where ingredients are produced, the “certified organic” status can mean different things. We select ingredients that are either certified organic in a country with high organic standards, or ingredients that have been produced organically, while it may not be certified. We also select ingredients that have been tested for pesticide residues and contaminants. Often these products are of a much higher standard than ‘certified organic’. Overall, we are selecting the most pure, non-toxic ingredient and ethically sourced ingredient that we can find.
Some ingredients aren’t available as ‘organic’ so we select the best source according to the criteria above. We ask our suppliers a lot of questions and request reports.
Some ingredients are not biological, or ‘farmed’ but made in a lab, like some of our aminos and vitamins. These wont be listed as ‘organic’, just as ingredients.
Dewy Fruit is not an edible it works via melting it onto your genitals. Rub it on. It is a topical lubricant. Enjoy rubbing it on. It is safe to lick during sexual activity.
Dewy Fruit are not designed as an edible chocolate substance. They are not sweetened for culinary purposes as that would not be appropriate for the vaginal pH or biome, so you will find that they taste quite bitter. They also contain a small amount of a herbal oil that is not suitable for eating beyond a small amount. It is non toxic to eat 1 -2 pieces and lick them off each other. The desired effects are achieved by melting them onto your genitals, not by ingesting them (eating them).
We will work on something chocolate based that is an edible aphrodisiac for you if you want. Let us know!
In the meantime, if you just can’t handle the chocolatey aromatic goodness of Dewy Fruit without eating chocolate, please buy edible chocolate to eat simultaneously with your Dewy Fruit experience.
