Colour can be used as an "antidote" to situations in our lives.  By being immersed in Colour (by wearing, drinking, eating, using or surrounding ourselves in colour) we can eliminate "missing" colours and bring balance to our lives.  Throughout history Colour has be used to increase the energies of our chakras and general being, to assist physical, spiritual and mental conditions and to aesthetically improve our outlook, both psycologically and within our daily environments.  We use the language of colour everyday:  feeling blue; green around the gills; yellow bellied coward; out of the blue; green with envy; in the pink, etc. Colour is used to symbolize status or rank, to warn us of danger, to attract our attention or to camoflage our true self. 

The following is a very basic guide to the properties of the following colour and in what situations it may prove useful.   These properties have been collected from various sources and personal experiences over many years.  For more in-depth or specific information please contact an experienced Colour Therapist.
