There are some colours which hold powerful imagery that springs to mind immediately. For example, for many people, white may signify innocence and purity. Black is often considered more dramatic and sultry, with red being seen as a strong romantic colour.
But what about green? Yes, it’s one of the colours we see the most clearly in nature. It conjures up images of new life, growth and health. The saying, ‘eat your greens’ is probably something we have all heard and it serves to engrave the positive message that ‘green is good’ firmly into our minds.
What is colour therapy?
Colour therapy is an holistic and non-invasive complementary therapy which believes that energy from the seven colours of the spectrum – red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet – correspond with the main energy centres, or Chakras, of the body. By using the right colour energy to balance the different Chakras in the body, practitioners believe colour therapy can boast many benefits for overall health and well-being.

How colours relate to your body’s Chakra
In colour therapy, red relates to your base, orange your sacral and yellow your solar plexus. Green is linked to the heart, blue the throat, indigo the brow and violet your crown.
Why is green such an important colour?
In addition to green being a colour of nature, its association to the heart Chakra in colour therapy relates to love and self-love. It refers to the ability to give and receive love unconditionally. When the heart Chakra is balanced, each one of us has the ability to love and nurture ourselves and others, without conditions or boundaries.
You can literally wear your heart on your sleeve by adding vibrant green to your wardrobe. Go head-to-toe with a floor-length green maxi dress for a great wardrobe addition.
Green separates can be a great way to add a pop of colour to a neutral palette, but why not channel the green goddess in you with a green maxi dress to stand out from the crowd for all the right reasons.
The colour green has other positive associations too. It suggests generosity, compassion and understanding, adaptability, practicality and sympathy. It also points to a love of children, animals and nature.
