The Effects of the Colors

Different qualities are associated with different colors. You can relate the colors to vata, pitta and kapha and use color to affect your wellbeing, particularly through the colors you choose for your clothes and the décor of your home and work place. The range of hues reflect the different facets of a color. For example, red is associated with heat violence, aggression, passion, power, domination, but it can also be stimulating, warming and comforting.

Colors for Kapha

Avoid white if you are a kapha. All colors pacify kapha, except greens and dark blues. Choose bright, strong, bold colors and designs that will excite you.

Colors for Vata

If you are vata type, blue and other dark shades probably predominate in your wardrobe. Ideally, you should avoid dark colors, especially black, browns and blues. You should also avoid vivid colors which may disturb the sensitivity of the nervous vata. Choose pastel shades instead.
