Color Combos!

We live in a technicolor world. But, we may not be aware of how much color truly affects us. For example, some colors like blue or white evoke a sense of serenity and calm, while firery colors like red or orange possibly enhance anger or rage. Ayurveda views color as an influential source that can affect our physical, mental and emotional well-being. Choosing colors that will benefit our doshic constitution can create significant energetic changes and enhance our overall health. Vatas respond best to grounding colors such as earthy tones but may also be creatively stimulated by yellows and greens. Firey Pitta can be managed with cool blues and Kaphas require vibrant, bright colors to motivate and keep them active. This interesting article on color and Ayurveda discusses the spectrum in more detail with a unique eco-friendly paint line developed specifically with the wisdom of Ayurveda. After reading it, I’m sure you’ll never look at color the same way again. Namaste
