Ritual for invoking Oshun’s blessings in matters of love and fertility

Gather Your Supplies:

  • Amansa Guapo
  • A yellow or gold candle (representing Oshun)
  • Love-related essential oils (such as rose or jasmine)
  • Optional: Tempress Spell Oil
  • Optional: Honey or sweet syrup


  1. Find a quiet and private area to conduct your ritual.
  2. Light the yellow or gold candle as a representation of Oshun’s presence.
  3. Begin by anointing the candle with the love-related essential or spell oil. Focus on infusing the candle with the energy of love and fertility.
  4. Next, sprinkle or roll the Amansa Guapo herb onto the candle. As you do this, visualise your intentions of attracting love and harmonious relationships.
  5. Hold the dressed candle in your hands and speak your intentions aloud. Ask Oshun for her blessings in matters of the heart and relationships.
  6. Express gratitude to Oshun for her guidance and support.
  7. If desired, drizzle a small amount of honey or sweet syrup around the base of the candle as an offering to Oshun.
  8. Light the dressed candle, focusing on the flame as a symbol of your intentions being sent into the universe.
  9. Meditate or pray while the candle burns, visualising the love and fertility energies manifesting in your life.
  10. Allow the candle to burn down completely if it is safe to do so. Otherwise, extinguish it with gratitude and relight it when you can continue. Never blow out your candle offerings, as this can be seen as disrespectful. Instead, safely snuff out the flame.
  11. Dispose of any remaining herbs or candle remnants respectfully.

Repeat this ritual regularly, especially when you seek Oshun’s blessings and guidance in love and relationships.
Keep the intention of love and fertility in your heart as you go about your daily life, remaining open to receiving Oshun’s blessings.
This candle-dressing ritual harnesses the energies of Oshun to attract love, harmony, and fertility into your life. Remember to perform this ritual with sincerity, respect, and positive intentions towards yourself and others involved.
