What drinks are offered to the Orishas?

Addimú drinks

In the yoruba religion Each Orisha has her favorite offerings, also her own plants, flowers, attributes, and foods. Although most of the addimú (offerings) that we know of are food, drinks are also provided to the deities.

All these offerings and elements of nature as a whole form ties between us and the Orisha, because it establishes a special connection through the offering.

When to make offerings to the Orishas?

To provide an addimu to an Orisha you do not necessarily have to be in trouble, it is offered from the heart so that the Orisha knows that you care for him, you consent to him, that you respect him, that you are grateful that he is in your life and for that energy to enter both get stronger every day.

The action of gratitude to the Orisha that we do through her tastes and offering her Addimú (offerings) also strengthens the feelings of good protection, health, stability and tranquility in our life, we must never stop being grateful to our deities.

The offerings are made when the orisha or the dead person has requested it through a consultation, although many times we are guided by our intuition, wanting to provide what we know the deity likes.

Remember that there are also taboos for the orishas, ​​that is, elements, be they plants, drinks or foods that are to the liking of the deities and their offer may annoy you.
