Mood Alchemy is excited to announce the introduction of Colour Therapy to complement the mood altering properties of our luxury aromatherapy products.
The use of Colour is a truly holistic therapy which dates back thousands of years to ancient Egyptian, Chinese and Indian cultures. These ancient cultures believed that when energy did not flow harmoniously through the body, a phase of unbalance was entered into and psychic and physical pathologies were created, resulting in illness.
Colour Therapy (also known as Chromotherapy) aims to balance and enhance the body’s energy centres (chakras) by using the colours of the light spectrum to heal the mind, body and spirit. Put simply, colors are certain wavelengths of electro-magnetic energy, and these individual colours can resonate with the energy of each of the seven main chakras of the body, restoring balance. Balance in the body’s energy centres is essential for holistic health and wellbeing.
In modern times, there is now a wide professional acceptance of the link between colour and mood. For example, architects and interior designers use colour to influence a work space or retail outlet. When the eye observes light of a particular wavelength (colour), it is thought to stimulate the cortical and hypothalamic regions of the brain, which are associated with our emotional responses. Hence certain colours can influence your mood just by looking at them, and in doing so trigger a sense of wellbeing – making you feel good about yourself.
To complement Mood Alchemy’s unique aromatherapy essential oil blends, we have now introduced specific coloured glassware packaging to enhance the mood altering properties of our products.
