Elegba Oil, featuring Bay Leaf with earthy top notes in a base of Bay, is formulated to encourage attributes of Elegba: messenger of the crossroads who creates opportunity. Traditionally associated herbs are included as the Deity Oils are blended to honor the energetic qualities of each of the Deities.
Elegba (also referred to Eleggua or Elegguá) is the owner of the roads and doors in this world. He is the repository of ashé. The colors red and black or white and black are his and codify his contradictory nature. In particular, Elegba stands at the crossroads of the human and the divine, as he is child-like messenger between the two worlds. In this role, it is not surprising that he has a very close relationship with the orisha of divination, Orunmila. Nothing can be done in either world without his permission. Elegba is always propitiated and always called first before any other orisha as he opens the door between the worlds and opens our roads in life. He recognises himself and is recognised by the numbers 3 and 21.
