Oshun Bath is perfect for when you want to inhibit your inner goddess and need to shine. This bath is all about beauty and self-love and connecting with Oshun.
Oshun is considered to be the most beautiful of the female Orishas. She exhibits all of the characteristics associated with fresh flowing water: she's lively, sparkling, vivacious, refreshing. No one can resist her seductive laugh, her graceful dancing, and her lips that taste like honey. She has a lush womanly figure with full hips, which suggests eroticism and fertility. She loves silks, perfumes (especially vetiver and sandalwood), fans and mirrors, all kinds of jewelry, (especially coral and amber, gold and brass), she wears golden bracelets that jingle seductively when she moves, and her favorite treat is honey. Her favorite flower is the sunflower. Although she's young and sometimes seems frivolous, she's a very powerful Orisha. In many instances where other Orishas fail, Oshun triumphs, often by using her feminine wiles and sweetness to conquer her enemies.
Oshun's colors are yellow and gold, her number is 5 (and multiples of 5). Her day of the week is Saturday. She's syncretized with the Virgin of Caridad de Cobre, who is the patroness of Cuba. This makes Oshun especially dear to Cubans, who celebrate her feast day of September 8 as a major holiday. Both the peacock and the vulture are her symbols. A patakÌ_ explains that Oshun in the form of a peacock flew to heaven to talk to Olofi about a problem the Orishas were having on the earth. No one else was brave enough to do this, because they knew Olorun (the sun) would burn them to a crisp. As the peacock flew closer to the sun, its feathers were charred, its beauty was lost, and by the time it got to Olofi, it no longer looked like a peacock, but resembled a vulture instead.
