Favorite Color Calling!

Have you ever felt pulled towards a specific color when getting dressed or making design choices? Be it your clothes, decor or choice in everyday items, having a favorite color is no accident! Everyone is born with an inclination towards one color, and the one you choose says a lot about your personality and tendencies. In Ayurveda, color connects to your subconscious, including feelings and memories, and can have powerful effects on the mind. Thats why each dosha, or mind-body type, has certain shades that help balance out your internal energies, which is the key to well-being! If you don't know your dosha, find out with this quick quiz!

Therapeutic Tones

Colors also have therapeutic qualities. Since color arises from the presence of light, the energy of the Sun is within color, making it a restorative force. The different wavelengths of light that actually produce the colors also send off various vibrations that affect each dosha differently. Because of this, you're attracted to certain colors based on your own prakriti, or internal balance. In case you're struggling with some vikriti, or imbalance, we're sharing some color choices that can help even out your life energies.
