About Colour Mirrors

Colour mirrors was created by Melissie Jolly in South Africa in 2001. It is a colour therapy system centred around 90 oil bottles and 40 spritzer essence bottles. Each oil bottle is split into two colours and has its own meaning and vibration. The bottles consist of organic avocado oil, water and natural food dyes. The top half (oil) relates to what we are consciously aware of and the bottom half (water) indicates patterns that lie in the subconscious.

The spritzer essences also have their own unique vibration and message and are named after angels, dragons and the elements. They are excellent for moving stuck emotional energy swiftly.

Colour Mirrors give us insights into our emotions, our health, our blocks, our potential and who we truly are. When we choose a bottle it reflects how we are feeling emotionally in that moment whilst accessing our subconscious patterns. It is like the colours are speaking to us directly. Each colour in the spectrum has a meaning but the colour combinations of each bottle provide their own specific meanings too.

How the bottles are used

You can meditate with the bottles, bathe with them and have a one-to-one sessions with a Colour Mirrors practitioner. A client will start with an issue, then choose a bottle to reflect that issue and investigate what it means to them. Many people find that the bottles remind them of a memory which evokes strong positive or negative reactions to the colours. The client feels into these reactions and may decide to choose more bottles to offer support or perhaps decide that they don’t need a particular bottle once they have worked through some of the feelings associated with it.

People find that by placing one bottle beside another one they have a strong reaction that can create a sense of calm or provide a new way of looking at an old situation or emotional state.

Working with the bottles in this way can be an empowering process because you can manipulate them personally and clients often get their own answers whilst working with the bottles. There are specific Chakra bottles and sessions can be performed by placing the bottles on a clients body to identify any blocks. Colour Mirrors also works excellently in combination with EFT, (Emotional Freedom Technique) the scents and colours shifting energy more swiftly.

What issues can Colour Mirrors be used for?

The bottles reflect how we are feeling and can be used for all kinds of issues. Clients often report after a Colour Mirrors session that it brings clarity to difficult personal situations and problems, relationship issues, potential, purpose, self-belief and self-worth and that the bottles lead them to think about what they really want and need in their lives (their purpose) as opposed to what they consciously think they want.

We are constantly surrounded by colour, and it subconsciously influences our every waking moment.  In nature it is used to signal danger, to entice or to attract the opposite sex.  We also use the immediate impact of colour in society e.g. in traffic lights and car brake lights.  Colour works in a subliminal way, well known to advertisers and big businesses who consciously use the power of colour to sell. Colour Mirrors harnesses that subliminal effect and uses it for healing purposes.

Each bottle can be purchased at a cost of £33 (plus p+p).

‘I had a fascinating Colour Mirrors session with Shirley yesterday!  Throughout the session Shirley was very supportive and encouraging so I found it really easy to access my thoughts/feelings while looking at the bottles I had chosen. We were able to discuss the meanings of each bottle and how I felt about it. Also, the placing of each bottle was important and Shirley advised me to play with this to see what felt most resonant with me.  I ended the session feeling that my pathway forward had been confirmed to me. I would definitely recommend this to others, as it’s just soooo accessible for everyone.’



I really enjoyed my colours session with Shirley. It’s fascinating what came up! Shirley is brilliant, kind and compassionate. Her lovely gentle nature comes across in her work and I felt much clearer and calmer after the session.’
