Color and aroma therapies are powerful vibrational healing modalities that promote wellness in several ways.

They bypass the conscious mind and directly affect the limbic system. The correct colors and aromas can calm or energize us instantly, depending on our need at the moment.

This, of course, works on the mind/body connection, promoting balance in our energy system, and providing profound benefits in terms of hormonal (physical), emotional, mental, and spiritual well-being.

Color Therapy


One of the most satisfactory aspects of using essential oils medicinally and cosmetically is that they enter and leave the body with great efficiency, leaving no toxins behind. The most effective way to use essential oils is not orally, as one might think, but by external application or inhalation.

The methods used include:

  • body oils
  • compresses
  • cosmetic lotions
  • baths (including sitz, hand, and foot baths)
  • hair rinses,
  • inhalation (by steam, direct from the bottle or from a tissue)
  • perfumes
  • room sprays
  • and a whole range of room methods

Unlike chemical drugs, essential oils do not, as far as we know remain in the body. They are excreted in three to six hours in a normal healthy body and up to fourteen hours in an obese or unhealthy body.

As well as being noninvasive and nontoxic to the human organism, essential oils are noninvasive in terms of heat and electromagnetism. Each body cell is electrically charged, and the effect of electricity, in all its forms, plays a part in the healing process.

The dextrorototary and lavorotatory (clockwise and counterclockwise) characteristics of essential oils have been known for a long time. It could be that these aspects of the essential oils contribute towards stimulating the body's own natural healing mechanisms.

The positive effect of essential oils on blood circulation is well known. Through this, they play an important part in bringing oxygen and nutrients to the tissues, while assisting in the efficient disposal of carbon dioxide and the other waste products that are produced by cell metabolism.

The general increase in blood flow improves the efficiency of the immune system and decreases blood viscosity. In deed, there is not a part of the human body and brain that is not helped by good circulation.

Color Therapy

Sunlight, which contains all wavelengths, consists of the entire electromagnetic spectrum that we depend on to exist on this plant. It is odd that scientists who understand rays in the atmosphere do not understand the effect that colors have on us.

We know that some rays can be dangerous if we are exposed to them. But the visible light, the rainbow, has a soothing effect on us. This life-giving light can probably give us even more help if we learn to understand what the colors mean.

How Do We Absorb Colors Through Light?

  1. First, photons reach the retina, where they are transformed into electric nerve impulses.
  2. These nerve impulses are transferred to the brain through a progressive series of electrochemical reactions in the nerve cells.
  3. Finally, the back end of the brain receives the electricity and transfers it to the picture we see outside our bodies.

The seven color energies are the prime power behind every chakra. Every chakra has a latent "mission" or "assignment" that has to be fulfilled. Moreover, the fulfillment of these missions is a birthright of every individual. Unfortunately, life is filled with so many unforeseen incidents that it can be difficult for a person to fulfill these needs and still remain balanced and positive. We have a right to fulfill the mission or inherent need associated with each chakra.

The Red Root Center

The Right "To Have"

The right to survive is the most important aspect of the red energy center. Food, clothing, shelter, heat, medical aid, and physical contact are among the most important things in life. Concern with these basics is a primary part of the red energy, and it will always seek a way to best satisfy these needs.


The Orange Spleen Center

The Right "To Feel"

Accusations like "shame on you" or "you have no right to be angry" are very hard on orange energy, as it does not like to be told what to feel. It is very hard for the organ energy to know what it wants to do if it is not allowed to feel freely.


The Yellow Solar Plexus Center

The Right "To Act"

We are trained to obey and submit to authority from childhood. Parents who use their power to raise "good" children, and teachers or other authorities who demand blind obedience, block the yellow child's personal willpower and the ability to express themselves freely.


The Green Heart Center


The Right "To Love and Be Loved"

People need to love. Emotional blockages arise when people are exposed to racial discrimination, cultural barriers, and war. These things block love out. Furthermore, the heart chakra can simply close if you do not receive enough love as a child or as an adult.


The Blue Throat Center

The Right "To Talk and Live In Truth"

Messages such as "do not talk like that" or "calm down if you are that angry!" stop us from expressing our feelings. This suppression of feelings can lead to the closing of the throat chakra. Our throat chakra will also close when we have to listen to family lies, or keep secrets that we do not wish to keep.


The Indigo Brow Center

The Right "To See"

Your forehead chakra can close when someone tries to tell you that what you see or think is not real, when someone lies and keeps things hidden from you, and when the development of your "third eye" is hampered.


The Violet Crown Center

The Right "To Know"

Restraint can, paradoxically, really inspire a violet person. By taking away a violet person's opportunity to develop spiritually or to spread spiritual knowledge, or by subjecting a violet person to dictatorial forces, extra spiritual energy is generated, and this is what creates saints.
