Best bottle color?
I apologize in advance if this has already been addressed. I can't make the search function on this forum work. It just returns a blank page. If someone just wants to link me to where this was previously discussed that would be great too.
I'm about to place an order for bottles and jars for the purpose of storing my herbal tinctures and and dried herbs. I am really digging the blue bottles and jars because they are so pretty! I know amber bottles and jars are the "industry standard" though.
Is one color of dark bottle/jar better than the other? I know clear jars don't protect herbs and tinctures from the light as well, but I am not sure what dark color does this best.
So, herbalists, tell me: Would you rather store your herbs and tinctures in blue bottles or amber ones? Why? Does it make a difference?
