Purple and The Crown Chakra
Violet is associated with the crown chakra, or the energy center at the top of the head. It’s said to increase intuition, calm psychological disorders and balance physical and spiritual energies. It has been called the color of wisdom.
Violet is also the color of meditation so works well in rooms where you want to think introspectively, like bedrooms, studies or libraries.
Violet is used in the treatment of epilepsy, scalp disorders, mental and nervous disorders and tumors. It is also believed to help those who suffer from migraines or insomnia. Violet strengthens the lymph system and immune system and helps purify the body.
