The healing properties of blue may help calm strong emotions, anger, aggression, hysteria, and soothe mind and nerves.  Blue color therapy can cool down inflammations, reduce fevers, and help with insomnia.  Because the color blue is associated with the Throat Chakra, blue color therapy can help with eyes, ears, nose, and throat problems.

 

Those with a preference for blue find the color cool and soothing.  It is a color that makes them feel at peace and restful.  People who prefer blue often keep their distance but will offer calm and practical help when needed.

A person with an aversion to blue may be very disciplined, strong career worker, and doesn’t care for commentary or restriction.  Also too much exposure to blue can create depression, feelings of gloom, fearfulness or melancholy.
