Shango Oil, featuring Frankincense Pieces with earthy top notes in a base of Sandalwood, is formulated to encourage attributes of Shango: spirit of lightening who inspires spiritual transformation. Traditionally associated herbs are included as the Deity Oils are blended to honor the energetic qualities of each of the Deities.
Perhaps the most 'popular' of the orishas, Shangó rules over lightning, thunder, fire, the drums and dance. He is a warrior orisha with quick wits, quick temper and is the epitomy of virility. Shangó took the form of the fourth Alafin (supreme king) of Oyó on Earth for a time. He is married to Obba but has relations with Oyá and Oshún. He is an extremely hot blooded and strong-willed orisha that loves all the pleasures of the world: dance, drumming, women, song and eating. He is ocanani with Elegba, meaning they are of one heart. His children have an innate ability for divination. His colors are red and white and he recognises himself in the numbers four and six. He is most often represented by a double headed axe.
