Indigo, a regal, dark blue-violet, is cool (yin) and calming. It is associated with our psychic awareness, intuition, and memory.

Indigo is soothing and antiseptic. It can help balance fear, frustration, and negative emotions; it helps one to be less aware of pain yet fully conscious. Use indigo for pain, poor motor skills, posture, menstrual irregularities, hair loss, and eye and ear disorders.

In foods, indigo appears as a blue with a black overtone, as in black beans, blackberries, or plums. Indigo foods are often good sources of Vitamin K and lycopene.

Indigo is inspiration, imagination and peace of mind. Similar to blue, indigo fruits and vegetables are high in antioxidants and phyto-chemicals which help promote healthy function of the brain, pituitary gland, sinus, vocal cords and the lungs, as well as boosting the immune and respiratory systems.
