Green is made by combining yellow (wisdom) with blue (spirituality). Being in the middle of the colour spectrum, it is neither hot nor cold. Green is the colour of the heart centre, healing, balance, compassion, love, transformation, growth, generosity, and peace.
Green is rejuvenating and anti-inflammatory. Green can help calm anger and improve memory, paranoia, and nervous exhaustion. It affects the lungs, heart, thymus gland, and immune system. Use green for backaches, heart trouble, immune disorders, lupus, allergies, head colds, shock, and trauma, and to lower blood pressure.
Green in plants signifies the presence of chlorophyll. We see green as clean, crisp, and refreshing, and so is often used to market cleaning products. Helps maintain eyesight and may reduce the risk of vision problems common later in life. May reduce the risk of cancer and help the body get rid of cancer-causing chemicals.
Green is considered a healing colour and is associated with the heart. Green fruits and vegetables contain phyto-chemicals such as luteins and indoles which are good for the heart. They are also high in fibre and promote a healthy digestive system.
