Offerings to the Òrìṣá

I would like us to discuss offerings. Can be from personal experience or from a historical reference. This may or may not include:

  • Locations or climates to set a shrine to pay homage
  • Food a particular Òrìṣá likes
  • Color of cloth

For example it is said to appease Eṣú that one can setup a shrine at a crossroads. Eṣú is often described as the mediator between good and bad, positive and negative. Eṣú is where two perpendicular roads meet. Palm oil can be offered.

Cola nuts (bitter cola nuts in Shango's case), palm oil and corn meal seems to be a universal staple food for the Orishas
