Aromatherapy Colour Blends

Aromatherapy Colour Blends



This post adds further to the post from earlier this month on Aromatherapy and colour. I am going to quickly explore 2 colours giving personality traits linked to each and suggestions of oils for them. I have also formulated a ‘rainbow’ blend which I use as part of a colour meditation based around the chakras



Red is the colour of fire and passion. It is connected with the earth, our emotions and the attachment we feel to our surroundings.

It symbolises:

  • Warmth
  • Heat
  • Love
  • Danger
  • Desire

Use ‘red’ essential oils when you encounter the following:

  • A sense of isolation
  • Floating / Head in the clouds
  • Lack of energy and a feeling of constant tiredness

Red Essential Oils

  • Vetivert (Vetiveria zizanoides)
  • Myrrh (Commiphora myrrha)


Blue represents peace and calm. It symbolises:

  • Stability
  • Harmony
  • Trust
  • Truth

Use ‘blue’ essential oils when you encounter the following:

  • A need for calm
  • Over excitability
  • Panic

Blue Essential Oils

  • German Chamomile (Matricaria chamomilla)
  • Eucalyptus (Eucalyptus smithii, globulus, dives)



Rainbow Blend

Equal quantities of:

Vetivert (Vetiveria zizanoides)

Sweet Orange (Citrus sinensis)

Juniper (Juniperus communis)

Sweet Marjoram (Origanum marjorana)

Eucalyptus (Eucalyptus smithii)

Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia)

This can be used as a room spray for meditation, applied in a carrier to the chakra points or in a bath
