Elegua Incense is designed to help you to better connect with Elegua. The incense is for protection and opening the road for opportunities.
Elegua's colors are red and black. His number is 3, or any multiple of 3. His day of the week is Monday and the 3rd day of every month. Traditionally, January 6th and June 13th are recognized as his "saint's days" in Cuba. On these days, a feast may be given in his honor. In the Catholic religion, Elegua is syncretized with the Child Jesus of Atocha, Saint Anthony of Padua, and the Anima Sola (soul in Purgatory).
Elegua likes all kinds of things associated with child's play, like kites, whistles, balls, and toy soldiers. He also likes keys, silver coins, a shepherd's crook, and a straw hat. He dresses in red and black, sometimes in Spanish colonial-style knee britches. On his head, he wears a red kerchief or cap, or a straw hat. When he dances, he's playful and wants others to pay attention to him.
In addition to candy, he likes cigars, toasted corn, coconuts, aguardiente (strong alcohol) or vino seco (white cooking wine), smoked fish, and red palm oil. On Mondays, he should be offered something he likes as a way of paying tribute to him.
