Blue chromotherapy: meaning and uses of this color
In chromotherapy, blue symbolizes calm, harmony and emotional balance. In addition, it increases the sensitivity. This color also gives inner peace, fulfillment and tranquility, but it is also typical of depression, sadness, and stress. From the physical point of view, however, it slows down the heart rate and your breathing and lowers the blood pressure.
Blue is the color connected to the fifth chakra, the Vishudda, which is located at the center of the throat. It is a symbol of femininity and stillness. In Chinese medicine, it is a yin color and is related to immortality. It is associated with the geometric shape of a circle. It represents the eternal movement of the spirit and, at the same time, calm and dynamism.
There are many uses of this color: it is great to help fighting skin problems like itching, but also fever, insomnia, colics, diarrhea, toothache, migraine, palpitations, sore throat, eye inflammations, menstrual pains, and kidney diseases.
To benefit from its properties, you an eat blue foods, such as eggplant, blueberries, blackberries, plums, black grape and radicchio. Alternatively, it is useful to use blue clothes, living in rooms with blue walls or use light blue lamps.
