Here’s a quick guide to the colors you should use according to your body’s constitution
People with dominant kapha tend to be lethargic and a little dull at times. That’s why they do great with bright and lively colours such as reds, oranges, and gold.
While kapha people struggle with being too calm, pitta dominants are placed at the other end of the spectrum. Hotheaded and restless, they do brilliantly with cooling colours such as pastels and all shades of blue and green.
An imbalanced vata can result in anxiety and fear. For this, vata dominants are served best by warm soothing colours such as golds, yellows, oranges and deep reds for their stimulating properties and whites and blues for their soothing effects. Vatas should avoid purples.
