Color therapy, or chromo therapy, has been used for thousands of years in holistic healing. In design school, I studied how colors can help to calm, inspire and even invoke passion in a person. My favorite color of all time is green. I chose it when I was 3 because it was 'the color of trees.' Green can be both calming and inspiring, depending on the shade. Is this why we feel so good with a beautiful bunch of flowers around us? Are the colors actually doing something to our physique? I'll go on a limb and say yes, I'm sure the infusion of color is always helpful. Right now I'm loving purple, which is linked to deep joy, inspiration and creativity. Go figure. ;) Check out a fun article I found on divavillage.com about color therapy. When you're ordering your next bouquet, think about the feeling you would like to invoke with it, and choose your color palette accordingly.
