Yemaya Oil, featuring Sea Shell and Rue Pieces with citrus floral top notes in a base of Coconut, is formulated to encourage attributes of Yemaya: goddess of the ocean. Traditionally associated herbs are included as the Deity Oils are blended to honor the energetic qualities of each of the Deities.
Yemayá lives and rules over the seas and lakes. She also rules over maternity in our lives as she is the Mother of All. Her name, a shortened version of Yeyé Omo Eja means "Mother Whose Children are the Fish" to reflect the fact that her children are uncountable. All life started in the sea, the amneotic fluid inside the mother's womb is a form of sea where the embryo must transform and evolve through the form of a fish before becoming a human baby. In this way Yemayá displays herself as truly the mother of all. She, and the root of all the paths or manifestations, Olokun is the source of all riches which she freely gives to her little sister Oshún. She dresses herself in seven skirts of blue and white and like the seas and profound lakes she is deep and unknowable. She is associated with the number 7.
