I recently had a company called Infinity Jars reach out to me to ask if I’d be interested in trying their products. Free products? For me? Hell, yeah!
Wait… just what exactly are Infinity Jars, and what would I use them for? Time to do some research.
A quick Google search led me to the Infinity Jars website where they offer a whole range of screw top jars, cosmetic bottles, kitchen bottles, and apothecary jars. The jars and bottles are all very dark, nearly black. Color me intrigued. The sleek containers are made of a thick, pigmented glass that block visible light, and the lids are completely air tight. According to the website, these jars will preserve the freshness of their contents for over six months. And Infinity Jars ran a couple of lab tests to prove it.
So I asked Infinity Jars to send me a sampling of small and large screw top jars, a small push pump bottle, and a small essential oil bottle with a euro-style dropper. They shipped my package the very next day, and it was on my doorstep within three. So what was my first impression?
They are beautiful! The glass is a very dark indigo color. In pictures the jars look nearly black, but in person you can definitely see the blueish tint. They absolutely do block out visible light, as well. With the lid off the screw top jars, you cannot see through the walls of the jars at all. They are surprisingly heavy, too! The glass is nice and thick — they don’t feel fragile, and I’m fairly certain they could withstand being dropped. But I’m not going to test that theory out, at least not intentionally. And since you can’t see what the containers hold, they each came with a separate label that you can adhere if you’d like. The label paper is glossy, and seems like it would be waterproof. It looks like the type you could write on with a dry-erase marker, then wipe clean if you decide to change the contents.
So, what am I planning to use mine for? I’m going to make myself a batch of whipped body butter for the largest screw top jar, and I think I might use the smaller one for a pot of lip balm. I’ve been wanting to make an oil and vitamin C face serum which would be perfect for that small pump bottle. For the essential oil bottle, I’m thinking of making a beard oil for Chris.
Will I buy more containers from Infinity Jars in the future? Most definitely! I make a lot of homemade spice mixes — think taco, Italian, Cajun seasonings and Ranch dressing mix. Right now I keep them either in small, plastic containers or clear glass jars, but I have to use them up fairly quickly or they go stale. If I store my mixes in Infinity Jars‘ glass jars, I can make much larger quantities and not worry about whether my spices are still fresh. I’ve also been wanting to try my hand at liquid soap, and Infinity Jars has a beautiful pump soap bottle that I’ve got my eye on.
