Health, healing, and understanding are associated with light blue.

It particularly elicits the feeling of softness, such as the blues in these next few images. The medium and light blues reminds of the blues in the sky and the sea. One can almost reminiscence moments of just sitting or lying taking in the blue colors of natures biggest canvas.

Even when medium and light blues are used as accents, one can be soothed into the feeling of relaxation.
