If you’ve ever wondered why you have reactions to different colors, you are not alone. Color experts and designers know that colors elicit reactions, and so many of them recommend soothing blue colors for bedrooms because there is a science behind the use of color.
Chromatherapy is the therapeutic use of colors combined with light to balance the physical and energy centers of the body, known as chakras. For an in-home experience, ThermaSol created its Serenity Light, Sound, Rainhead and its in-shower touchscreen controller ThermaTouch a Chromatherapy mode. This technology offers the benefits of chromatherapy in the privacy of your own home, rather than having to go to a spa for a similar treatment.
If you’re looking for a calming and revitalizing shower experience, try combining the Blue Chromatherapy setting and aromatherapy with our Rosemary Essential Oil.
Here are just a few reasons why these two work so well together in creating the perfect home spa experience:
Chakras are based on Ayurvedic medicine, an alternative medicine based on the health connections between the mind and the body. According to this discipline, each chakra is connected to a part of the body, corresponding with a specific color, energy and emotion.
Physically, the color blue is associated with the chakra of the throat area, including the esophagus, thyroid gland, neck and cervical spine. It is believed to be a vital in hormone regulation, metabolism and upper body strength.
On a mental level, blue is associated with communication and consciousness while emotionally, it is a color of peace and tranquility. Using chromatherapy through ThermaSol’s Serenity Light, Sound, Rainhead can be a route to balancing these areas of the mind and body, leading to feelings of calm, increased creativity and openness.
Rosemary Essential Oil
For an extra luxe shower and even more therapeutic benefits, combine blue chromatherapy and aromatherapy with French Rosemary Essential Oil. Simply put two to four drops into the reservoir of the SteamVection steamhead, which delivers consistent steam and aromatherapy evenly throughout the entire shower.
Studies show that rosemary may calm excess T cell activity, is anti-inflammatory and may help restore normal thyroid function for those with autoimmune thyroid disease. In aromatherapy, rosemary essential oil is known to calm nerves, improve memory and cognition, enhance confidence and boost creativity.
Aromatherapy within the shower, especially with the energizing, fresh fragrance of rosemary, is the perfect way to start or end any day.
Taking a shower needn’t be a mundane task – it can be elevated to be one of the ultimate forms of self-care. Why not take a well-deserved moment for yourself to rebalance and destress? This peaceful pairing is sure to do the trick.
