Reporter:Welcome to‘ the Teens show’, Mrs Rainbow. You use colours to help people change their moods and improve their lives, right? Mrs Rainbow: Yes, that’s right. I’m here to exp
lain how colour works. Reporter: Mrs Rainbow, you’ve been doing this since you left college. Can you tell us more about it? Mrs Rainbow: I use special oils in my therapy. These oils have different colours and smells. I can use them to change people’s moods. Reporter: How do you do that? Mrs Rainbow: Well, for example, if you are feeling sad, I’d ask you to think of a warm, sunny place. The colour orange cheers people up, so I use some orange oil and rub it into your skin.
Reporter: I see. What if I can’t sleep? Can you use colour therapy to help me? Mrs Rainbow: Yes. If you want to sleep, I’d ask you to think of the colour white. This can help to make you calm. I’d ask you to close your eyes and relax. Then I’d take some white oil and rub it into your skin. Reporter: Very good. How about other kinds of colour therapy? Mrs Rainbow: Well, I can also help people choose the right colour to wear. For example, people with dark hair and dark skin look good in red and purple. People with pale skin and blonde hair look good in orange and green. Reporter: That’s very useful information to know. Thank you, Mrs Rainbow.
