Yemaya, the protector of women. She governs everything pertaining to women; childbirth, conception, parenting, child safety, love, and healing. She oversees deep secrets, ancient wisdom, the moon, sea shells, and the collective unconscious. According to lore, when her waters broke, it caused a great flood creating rivers and streams. It's also thought that the first mortal humans were created from her womb.

Motherly and strongly protective, she cares deeply for all her children, comforting them and cleansing them of their sorrow. She is said to be able to cure infertility in women, and cowrie shells represent her wealth. She does not easily lose her temper, but when angered she can be quite destructive and violent, as the flood waters of turbulent rivers.

This invoking oil was created with sea salt, shells, seaweed, frangipani, sandalwood, lavender, and more to represent her. Anoint a blue or white candle dressed with white roses on a Saturday. Offerings can include white wine, watermelon, cornmeal, and coconut milk. Other things she likes but aren't techincally offerings are acts of service pertaining to the environment. Picking up trash on the beach, keeping the ocean clean, and general care for the environment.
