In our series looking at the colour vibrations in essential oils, today we are looking at purple.
Colour: Purple / Violet
Chakra: Crown chakraFeeling: Inner harmony and protection. Purifies, balances the mind. The colour of transformation and spirituality.
Purple vibrates at a higher frequency that most other colours and this aids in our transformation and melts away fear. This is the perfect colour to use in a room to create calm and purity of mind. Purple is antispetic and stimulates without heat, it protects against psychic attack and balances mind and body to be at one with each other.
Purple in the aura is a sign that spirituality is being sought and development in this area along with a need to be creative is very important for this person’s well-being.
Mental: Purple is the colour of self-knowing, self respect and tolerance. It promotes creativity and the need to help others… the colour of kindness. It can also sedate the mind therefore helping with anxiety.
Physical: Normalises glandular and hormonal activity, strengthens weak eyes and assists with building white blood cells. Violet light shone onto varicose veins can help to heal inflamed conditions.
Essential Oils which reflect the purple ray:
Juniper: blood purifying, toxin elimination and cleansing.
Lavender: soothes immune system, eases anxiety and negative thoughts, balances and brings patience.
Sandalwood: intuition and prevents recurring dreams.

Colours vibrate energy and we can use this energy to help change our mood, or prepare for the day ahead. Sunlight harnesses all the different colour wavelengths and spectrum that, as a planet we depend upon. It’s light influences our entire system. Each colour has it’s own wavelength and frequency and each single one has a specific energy and nourishing effect on all beings.
Light is made of seven colour energies – red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and purple and each colour is connected to various parts of our body, effecting us differently on an emotional and physical level. By learning the power of each colour, we can use these energies to bring a missing energy into our body.
We can use our mind to envelope ourselves in the colour we need – imagine the colour flowing around you, from the very top of your head, slowly surrounding your body, every part of it, right down to the tips of your toes. You may want to use your arms and hands to guide the colour around your body until you feel bathed in coloured light. It will feel comforting and peaceful as you feel surrounded by the vibrations of your chosen colour. You may wake up feeling sluggish, choose bright red, if you need help making the right decision, choose purple. If you are going to be with people that you find draw on your energy, protect yourself with orange. To help you move on from an emotional situation, choose green to help you grow and develop into the person you want to become.
Use colour to bring the right energy into your home too. It’s incredible how the change of a wall colour can transform the feeling in a room from edgy to chilled. In the nursery use soothing, safe and calm pale blues and greeny hughes to help your baby feel relaxed and calm – it will help them sleep better too.
Have a go… bring colour into your life, it will make you smile!
