Ayurvedic choice of colours

January 17th, 2011

Ever wondered why different people have different favourite colours? While you like bright, attractive colours, your best friend might just stick to sober, lighter colours. It is not just about the physical appearance of the colours but it is the type of vibrations one gets from a particular colour. According to Ayurveda, people seem to prefer one colour over another based on whether they have Vata, Pitta or Kapha body type.

Painting your house can be a task due to the availability of the choice of colours. To add to these choices  and to suit your personality,  AFM Safecoat paints has a system for Healing Paint Colors for Your Ayurveda Type that shows you how to find emotional balance through the use of color. The company does business on a “health first premise”–their paints meet the highest standards of environmental responsibility, and also contain no toxic ingredients such as solvents, heavy metals, chemical residuals, formaldehyde and other harmful preservatives.

The Ayurveda Essence color system takes the health premise a step further by offering interactive tools to help you manipulate subtle aspects of your environment to promote optimum wellness. There are 108 colors in three groups of 36. To keep it simple, they created three micro palettes that correspond to the three major constitutional types of Ayurvedic medicine: vata, pitta, and kapha. Once you know which type you are, you can select colors accordingly: whether the colors are hot or cold, warm or cool, calming or stimulating, uplifting or grounding, moist or dry, etc. Ayurvedic healing has generated many practices that promote harmony, created to relieve stress by helping us understand how to create balance in the day-to-day.
