Purple- a color known for its luxurious appeal. From time immemorial, the color purple has always been associated with nobility, royalty, luxury,and power. In psychology,purple represents creativity, wisdom, grandeur, mystery, dignity, pride and independence. If you correlate this to history, you would find this theory to be largely true.
All the kings and nobles, emperors and dukes would flaunt the color in their royal garb or their kingdom seal. In the era of the Romans, Julius and Augustus Caesar passed a decree that only the Emperor and his royal family members could wear the color purple. Anyone outside the royalty was punished if they ever touched anything of that shade. With such high regard towards the color, purple became inaccessible to the common man. In the later years, even after the abolition of monarchy in most countries, the royal attribute still remained to purple.
According to color therapy, purple, a blend of blue and red, embodies the warmth of red and the calmness of blue. It stimulates and uplifts spirits, calms the mind and nerves and encourages the spiritual side of our minds.

Today, with the support of science and technology, the common man has the democracy to wear, use and consume anything purple, unlike in ancient times. And the benefits of this color is paramount.
