Let's do this Ebbó to Elegguá for protection, that between Go and Luck

Ebbó with Elegguá

This ebbó or cleaning on behalf of Elegguá It is very simple, and the yam of this offering will please the little spoiled child of Osha since it is one of his favorite foods.

In the Rule of Osha or Santeria, it is Eleggua who guides us, protects us and opens closed roads for us, this ebbó we will do so that the iré (good energy) arrives next to open roads.

Elegguá along with Oggun, Oshosi and Osun is one of the warrior Orishas that form a trilogy of powerful deities in the yoruba pantheon.

Besides being the messenger of the Orishas, ​​Elegguá is a vigilante and a very defender of his children, there is no obstacle that the little giant does not face for his devotees.

Everything that you propose to do or offer to Prince Eleggua must be with respect, trust and love.

Also when doing the ebbó you must have a lot of faith in what you do and above all respect.


Cuban yam
Yam fruit
  • 1 or 2 yams (7 slices of the fruit)
  • Clay pot or white plate
  • Corojo butter
  • Smoked hutia
  • Smoked fish
  • 1 candle
  • Schnapps
  • Tobacco
  • 7 cents or 7 kernels of roasted corn

How do we make this Ebbó with Elegguá?

  1. First you peel the yam and cut it into 7 slices.
  2. You put it in the clay pot or plate, you take each piece one by one and you spread corojo butter on both sides.
  3. Then, on top of each slice, you add smoked Jutía and smoked fish.
  4. You light the candle and blow both Eleggua and the addimú (offering) a little brandy and tobacco smoke.

Let us ask the blessing of the little Orisha:

In the light of the candle you ask Elegguá for your blessing, you give him knowledge of what you are offering him and tell him what you need.

Remember that it is a spiritual connection, for example, never ask for money, ask for development, do not curse your enemies, better ask for justice.

You also ask him to keep you away from everything bad, to give you health and to enter the I will that you need in your life.

Let's do the cleaning to attract all the good:

  • Every day you will clean yourself with a slice of yam and you will separate it in a bag that will remain next to Elegguá.
  • You will light the candle for 7 days for a while while you clean yourself with each slice of yam.
  • Always remember that cleaning is done from head to toe, and you should never return to your upper body.

At the end of the ebbó with Elegguá you should take it with 7 cents or failing that with 7 grains of roasted corn to a square, a mountain or a leafy tree.

Also keep in mind that where you deposit that ebbó is a place that you should not go through in the next few days.

May the blessing of Eleguá protect you, I recommend that you do this cleaning on Monday, but if you cannot, do it when your intuition indicates it, ashé for you.
