Incorporating self-love rituals regularly can help boost your confidence and lets your inner goddess glow. And the current Venus Retrograde in Scorpio energy everyone is feeling calls for some old-fashioned goddess glow-up. This self-love Ritual is perfect for any long, lovely self care Sunday afternoon. And, it’s inspired by one of the most enchanting spirits - Oshun.
Oshun is the Yoruba orisha (spirit, deity, or goddess) of fresh waters, love, and divination. She is often pictured admiring herself in a mirror. Because of her undeniable sex appeal, many see her self admiration as vain, vapid, or shallow.
There’s an endless power in self-love and self-reflection. Self-love is never being afraid of seeing yourself and admiring yourself. Respecting your worth. Understanding ourselves. Forgiving ourselves. Improving ourselves.
Oshun teaches us that there is magic in loving and admiring yourself. Oshun shows us there is magic in self-confidence. Oshun wants us to know the magic in looking in the mirror.
Oshun has always been the Orisha I go to for support and help with self-love. Self admiration and love has always been something I struggled with; however, Oshun has tools that have helped me be sweeter to my reflection and strengthen my confidence.
Introducing OSHUNITA, the self love ritual kit
Oshunita is a pre-curated self care ritual kit inspired by the Yoruba Orisha Oshun. Oshunita is designed to boost your confidence and attract more love and sweetness into your life.
This self love ritual kit is a multisensory experience - stimulating your sense of touch with the warm bath, scent with the sweet and spicy anointing body oil, sight with flickering single-use, tea light candles, taste with addictively sweet honey, and sound with golden ring of a 3-inch tall brass altar bell.
I created Oshunita at a time I needed it most. I gathered ingredients that embodied the sweet, confident, and loving energy of Oshun.
Some of the ingredients included in the self love ritual are:
Self Love Ritual Ingredients

- She brings admiration and respect to the Oshunita Ritual
CINNAMON & CARDAMOM:
