Oya Oil, featuring Eggplant Skin with smooth floral top notes in a base of Wisteria, is formulated to encourage attributes of Oya: goddess of darkness, the wind, and the dead. Traditionally associated herbs are included as the Deity Oils are blended to honor the energetic qualities of each of the Deities.
Oyá is the ruler of the winds, the whirlwind and the gates of the cemetery. Her number is nine which recalls her title of Yansa or "Mother of Nine" in which she rules over the egun or dead. She is also known for the colors of maroon, flowery patterns and nine different colors. She is a fierce warrior who rides to war with Shangó (sharing lightning and fire with him) and was once the wife of Ogún. She is also the owner of the marketplace.
