Oya is the Yoruba Orisha of the Tempest: winds, storms, rain and hail. She is a very fierce, warrior goddess, and wife of Chango, also a storm god. She is said to be the Mother of Nine, the nine tributaries of the River Niger, and her rains are the source of these tributaries and the Niger.

Worshiped not only in Africa, she is seen as very present in the New World, especially in Brazil, where she is regarded as the Mother of the Amazon River. Oya is also said to watch over the recently deceased, and she is therefor a psychopomp who aids the dead to their final rest. Graveyards are sacred to her because of this.

My tribute oil to this stormy Orisha smells (to the best of my potioneer abilities) like rain and thunderstorms,and the freshly moistened Earth after rainfall. Use this oil reverently if you need to bring about or adjust to changes, or if you are a woman needing a champion or warrior to defend you and take your side in any dispute.

Natural Magick deity oils are made with reverence and research to be pleasing devotional blends for the gods and goddesses they are named for. I research legend and lore, and try to use oils of plants that grew in the lands where the deity originated or rules. The Natural Magick process of using planetary and elemental influences, correspondence, and high quality ingredients is especially appropriate for honoring the gods and bringing their qualities into our lives.

Anoint yourself to attune to these deities, or pour into offering bowls or aromatherapy lamps, or anoint statues or fetish objects. I love to give them to priests or priestesses who run open circles or invoke our patron gods and goddesses.

These oils are in beautiful round 1/2 ounce bottles, blended in 100% coconut oil, so with any care they should last a very long time. They are priced according to the ingredients requested by the gods.
