In syncretism with the patron saint and protector of Cubans, the Virgin of Charity of Copper, we pray to Oshún and ask for her powerful protection, strength in the face of obstacles, happiness and above all… Lots of love to end any conflict.
The goddess of love likes that her devotees and faithful thank her every day for the little things and that they always keep her in mind and not only when she fulfills her wishes.
essential offerings who worships the golden goddess
Honey, Oshinshin and five beautiful sunflowers are the elements that are usually offered both to thank and to make a request.
In addition to other foods such as gofio and honey from bees, olelé (bean bread in the shape of a tamale) with saffron, sweets of all kinds and pumpkins.
One of the best offerings to thank the goddess is a bouquet with the 5 most beautiful sunflowers that we can find, which we can leave in the current of the river to decorate her temple.
We can light an amber, gold, yellow or white candle, and thus respectfully present our request.
