To celebrate Spring, our Colour of the Month for May is… Leafy Green!

A colour of compassion, harmony, healing and nature, Leafy Green is pleasing to the eye and can increase a person’s sense of restfulness.

Leafy Green, which is also the term for Vegetables, is a healthy colour associated with nature. Being the most common colour in the world, we see green every day! Plants, fruit, vegetables, herbs, tea… green hues are tied to health, growth, freshness, money and safety!

House plants are very on trend at the moment… and not just for their look! People have them in their house to help bring the outdoors, in. They boost people’s mood, productivity, concentration and creativity. They also help to reduce stress, fatigue, sore throats and colds, as well as giving privacy and reducing noise levels… making them great for the office! They clean indoor air by absorbing toxins, increasing humidity and producing oxygen.

Different shades of greens have different meanings. For example, Dark Green is associated with ambition, greed and jealousy. Yellow Green can indicate sickness, cowardness, discord and jealousy. Aqua is associated with emotional healing and protection… and Olive Green is the traditional colour of peace. 

Green is seen as a lucky colour, especially in Ireland. But superstition has it that if you are sewing with green the night before a fashion show it will bring you bad luck! Spiritually, it effects our ability to express unconditional love, forgiveness and compassion. Green also represents abundance, renewal, growth and nature. 

The harmonising, balancing and calming colour give healing energy to the heart.
