Oyá, also known as Oiá or Yàńsàn-án, is a remarkable orisha that symbolizes the power of nature. She is the embodiment of the winds, lightning, and violent storms, representing the cycle of death and rebirth. Her strength and prowess are comparable to the Haitian lwa Maman Brigitte, who is syncretized with the Christian Saint Brigit.

The name "Ọya" is derived from "O ya," meaning "she tore," which accurately describes her fierce and unyielding character. Oyá is also known as "mother of nine" or Ọya-Ìyáńsàn-án in Yorùbá due to the nine stillborn children she gave birth to after a lifetime of barrenness. She is considered the patron of the Niger River (Odò-Ọya) and is highly respected for her influence and power.

Oyá Yansá is the owner of winds and storms, bringing change, whether it is desired or not, into the lives of humans. She is renowned as the most ferocious of the female Orichás, and she fights side by side with Changó in many battles. Wielding two swords and lightning, Oyá guards the gates of the cemetery, ensuring that the boundary between life and death is respected. She is also known to wear a mask to protect her privacy.

Oyá's army is composed of egun (spirits of the dead), and she uses violent winds to blow away everything in her path. Her movements are abrupt and violent, causing her skirts to fly around her. Tornadoes, it is believed, are caused by the whirlwind of her skirts as she dances. Oyá's full skirt is made of nine different colored pieces of cloth, often topped with a skirt of dried palm fibers, creating a stunning visual effect.

Her initiates often wear nine copper bracelets in her honor, as her number is nine, and her metal is copper. Oyá is highly respected as the patroness of the marketplace, representing the symbol of transition and change in the human world. Offerings for Oyá are often left in the marketplace, and her influence is felt far and wide. It is said that her clothing, which contains nine colors, is why the rainbow, also made up of different hues, belongs to Oyá.

In conclusion, Oyá is a remarkable orisha, who inspires awe and admiration in those who honor her. Her strength, ferocity, and power are unparalleled, and her influence is felt in many aspects of life. She is a force of change, representing the cycle of life, death, and rebirth, and her representation of nature's power is truly remarkable.

Scent: Petrichor, Rain, Ozone, Damp Earth, Thunderstorms
Accents: Roses and Garnet

✨Ozark Moons candles and wax melts are HAND-POURED with LOVE AND POSITIVE ENERGY and shipped directly from the OZARKS of Missouri in the heart of The United States✨

✨Each of our products is crafted individually in our home studio in our tiny home in the Ozark Mountains of Missouri and made to order using a unique custom blend of eco-friendly waxes – allowing for the maximum fragrance load possible and providing a long-lasting scent; that is earth (and lung) friendly!✨

Candle Instructions: Always keep wick trimmed back to under 1/4" (6.35mm) at all times, before and during burning. Do not burn for longer than 4 hours at a time. Discontinue use when the overall wax level falls to 1/4" (6mm) or less in the bottom of the container. Caution - the container can get scalding. Please burn on heatproof safe surfaces away from children and pets. Do not allow melted wax to contact skin as burns may occur.

These wax melts are compatible with Yankee Candle, Scentsy, Home Interiors, Partylite, and all other brands of melters/warmers.

DURING WARMER MONTHS, we can't guarantee that USPS will deliver your melts before they melt slightly. If this occurs, try putting the melts or candle into your refrigerator for a few minutes before opening or using your wax melts or candle. If a lot melts or you have any other issues, please don't hesitate to contact us through messages with a photo of the item, and we will absolutely make it right with you!


✨ Each candle and wax melt we make is individually handmade to order when your order is placed, therefore each is a work of art, and may not look exactly like the product photos, but will still have the same perfect intent for the deity, sabbat, or zodiac sign of your choice. Botanicals may vary by availability but will still be appropriate for the candle or wax melt of your choice. Charms received will vary.

✨ Due to using a blend of all-natural coconut and soy wax, variations in the look and texture of the wax will vary from wax melt to wax melt. These differences are not considered defects, nor will they affect how your wax melts.
