Color Therapy: Lavender

I tried to do good research. Really, I did. It just appears that the color, Lavender, is almost a rather boring color, though beautiful. Its history seems be as soothing as its namesake flower. It does not seem to have played in any major part in the trading industry, like the indigo did, and it wasn’t a lethal color like emerald once was. Basically, it’s just part of the purple family, which has been a color choice for royalties. And that was mainly because back in the day only royalties could afford the purple dye, which was made from snails.
