Colour Correspondences

The colour correspondences listed in the database describe the colours of the energy of the essence, which are not necessarily the colours of the plant, flower, mineral or suchlike.
However, this is one of the most holistic ways of assessing which essences might be useful.
This information is gleaned from historical texts on chakras and research from many sources on the effects of colour and light.
Please use the information below to identify which colour best matches your needs, whether that is to deal with something or to work towards achieving a goal and then return to the database and click onto 'Colour' in Box 1 and enter the colour you have found into Box 2 and click on 'Search'.
