Egyptian Blue Bottles
Violet’s signature cobalt blue bottles and jars pay homage to the “Egyptian Blue” phials, or bottles, of antiquity. The aromatic oils and perfumes from the ‘Land of the Pharaohs’ inspired elegantly designed bottles. During ancient Egyptian times, this deep blue color was costly and challenging to produce, but was widely popular.
Why are we so particular about the color of our bottles and jars? Colors played a significant role in symbolism for ancient Egyptians. Colors were used to convey meaning and images of greater power. Dark blue (irtyu) was one of the six main color groups in Egyptian antiquity. Dark blue symbolized fertility, rebirth, and the power of creation.
Blue glass symbolized the Nile. The creator god, Amun, is often depicted in artwork with a blue face. Pharaohs emulating Amun often had a blue face or hair in artwork. Ancient Egyptians also designed jewelry out of blue glass and lapis lazuli.
Violet’s bottles are environmentally friendly. They are manufactured with soda lime glass comprised of 30 to 50 percent recycled content. Recycled glass saves the Earth’s natural resources and it uses less energy to melt the raw materials.
Honoring the symbolism of rebirth, when you have finished your aromatic blend of Violet Botanical Skincare, its new life begins. Wash out your bottle or jar by hand with mild soap. Select some fresh cut flowers and voilà, a beautiful bud vase.
Ancient Egyptians also used decorative spoons for dispensing solid unguents and incense. They were intricately carved wooden spoons depicting women in intimate settings.
Violet espouses the ancient Egyptian practice of dispensing your body care products with a wooden spoon. We include eco-friendly, 100% bamboo spoons with our body care products.
