14 Products To Colour You Happy

Brighten up your surroundings with some entry level chromotherapy

words Heather Gwyther

Life is boring – not to mention limited – in black and white, but that’s not the only reason to love colour: it’s actually a form of therapy: chromotherapy. Like the vast majority of alternative therapies, colour therapy has been around for aeons, with roots in both ancient Egypt and Indian philosophy. The ancient Egyptians constructed sun-drenched rooms with coloured glass to treat a variety of maladies, while Indian philosophy takes the view that the seven colours of the colour wheel enhance our chakras.

These days, colour therapy is either done through sight alone with the hope that this will induce the desired response (we all do this unintentionally on a regular basis: think of how nice it feels to see a blue sky) or by directing certain colours onto the body to treat a variety of ailments. The best thing about the former technique? It can be kickstarted completely independently, with small additions to make you feel good. Without further ado, here is your colour therapy shopping list.
