Have you ever worn a certain color to perk yourself up? I’ve been reading up about theories of chakras lately, and how different colors can really impact your moods—it’s so fascinating!
Chakra theory was first developed by Hindus and has since been adopted by Buddhists, too. Basically, the body has seven main areas (or ‘wheels’) that act as energy points, starting from the pelvic region and leading up in a straight line to the top of the head. Each of the seven areas has a separate color that is believed to be responsible for different properties and healing powers.
Red governs the base chakra at the base of the spine. It is the area of survival and stability and your place on this earth, and connects us to our physical body.
When to wear it: When you need a boost of self-confidence
