A few months ago, I became interested in holistic health and wellness treatments. I quickly fell in love with the lymphatic drainage massage at Shape House, and while I was there, I noticed a collection of colorful bottles on display. When I asked its founder, Sophie Ciche, what they were all about, she described them as healing aura sprays. If you're anything like me, you're probably raising an eyebrow. To find out more, I got in touch with the woman of Aunt Vi's color essence aura sprays, Amanda Enclade.
I wasn't sure what to expect during our color consultation, but I left feeling empowered and more self-aware, thanks to Enclade's generous warmth and healing system, in which you mist the colorful waters around your face. It's sort of a combination of aromatherapy, life coaching, crystal healing, mindfulness, and energy work all rolled into one magical bottle. In other words, it's the easiest form of self-care around. "Colors are an unconscious, intuitive language that we just understand—it doesn't make sense.
So all the colors represent different moods and physical states," she explained to me. Basically, the colors feed you information about yourself.
The best part about the whole system is that you can do it on your own. To put it simply, you choose your three favorite bottles, the first one representing your true essence and the energy you exude, the second indicating a current challenge that needs healing, and the third indicating where you're headed in the future. Personally, I think it's a powerful and perceptive way to get in touch with your needs and desires, and the sprays make it accessible to start addressing your goals right away on your own.
