Oya is the powerful Yorùbá Orisha of the winds and tempests. She is considered either the sister of the Orisha of storms Shango, or one of His three wives, with Oshun and Oba. She can manifest as winds ranging from the gentlest breeze to the raging hurricane or cyclone. She goes forth with Her husband during His thunderstorms, destroying buildings, ripping up trees, and blowing things down. Oya is known as a fierce warrior and strong protectress of women, who call on Her to settle disputes in their favor.
As the Orisha of change, She brings down the dead wood to make room for the new, and She uses Her machete or sword to clear a path for new growth. She is believed to watch over the newly dead and assist them as they make the transition from life. She is equated with the Vodou Lwa Maman Brijit, Who, like Oya, guards graveyards.
Oya is the Orisha of the Niger River, and Her violent rainstorms are said to be its source. Like Oshun, She is worshipped not only in Africa but in Brazil, where the Amazon is said to be Her river, and where She is equated with the Virgin Mary as Our Lady of La Candelaria. Oya, who is an Orisha of a very fiery demeanor, also seems to have a far-flung connection with the Celtic Bridgit, both in Her Vodou counterpart Maman Brijit, and in Her associated Catholic saint, Our Lady of La Candelaria, whose feast day, February 2nd, is shared with Bride.
Oya's attributes are the sword or machete and the flywhisk, and Her animal is the water buffalo, in Whom She sometimes manifests. Her mother is said to be Yamaha, the Great Sea Mother. Oya Herself is said to be the mother of nine children--Egungun and four sets of twins.
Her number is nine, Her color is burgundy or purple, and Her metal is copper. Offerings to Oya include eggplants, coins, red wine, and cloth.

How are your crystals sourced?
Aside from ensuring that our crystals are authentic prior to purchasing, we also wanted to make sure our crystals are not being mined in a low vibrational environment. We searched long and hard to vet out suppliers that have proven ethical sourcing practices. We ask the hard questions and ask for proof such as pictures.
Ethical sourcing to us means that crystals are mined honestly, and miners are not children, are paid appropriately and are in safe working conditions. They also ensure that minors are taking these crystals from the earth with care and respect to the lands and people.
Isn't using White Sage bad?
In the past, we have purchased white sage without understanding the detriment it caused to the Native American spiritual communities. We recognize that something should be done to curve cultural appropriation around the world, yet still honor the knowledge we gain from being a global society. As a black-owned business we take honoring indigenous people very seriously.
To rectify our mistakes, a portion of every order is donated to indigenous charities, including Native Americans, you can read more about this here. You may also donate at checkout as well. We have also reduced the amount of White Sage sold here, while extensively teaching multiple ways to clear energy without the use of White Sage in our blogs, product descriptions and social media.
Orders are fulfilled within 48 hours of your time of purchase. Most are fulfilled with hours and go out the same or next day. At checkout, you will be able to choose from multiple vendors with a price for the provider and shipment time you feel is best for your area. I would recommend choosing something other than USPS if they are problematic in your area.
Tracking information is sent to you once the order has been fulfilled in the shop. Give the order at least 2 days for tracking information to be displayed for your selected carrier. Most orders are delivered within a week of order placement. However, this may vary and may come sooner or later, depending on your location and/or carrier.
