Freshly Made Oshun (Ochun) Love Oil

Oshun (Ochun) Love Oil. The Yoruban goddess Oshun has many names. She has 16 caminos (roads, pathways). Her name is linked with love, beauty, sexuality and fresh water. Oshun is worshipped because She rules the rivers, ponds and other forms of fresh water that sustain life. Her influences are the aspects of love, flirtation, sensuality, beauty and the arts.  Streams, rivers, lakes and waterfalls are sacred to her.

Spells for Oshun would include love, relationship, and marriage spells. If you are doing a marriage spell, be sure to include Shango in your spell because Oshun was once married to Shango.

Oshun Oil is made for people who want to draw in the energy of Oshun, the Yoruban Goddess of Love, Beauty, and Sexuality. There are many ways you can use this oil. The oil can be used to anoint yourself or dress a candle.

Suggestions for using Oshun Oil:

  • Gather 5 sunflowers, place them in a vase with fresh water and pour in a bit of the Oshun Oil. Place the flowers in the center of your home.
  • Mix Oshun Oil into some of her favorite foods such as oranges and honey and place it on your altar.
  • Pour 5 drops in a bowl of spring water and leave it by the front door in order to draw in her energy.
  • Anoint 5 chakra points on your body.
  • Pour 5 drops into your bath.
  • If you were born under the sign of Libra, there is a good chance that you would connect well with Oshun.

Ochun Love Spell


Take a pumpkin, empty it but leave some seeds in it, write your lover’s name on a brown piece of paper, place in the bottom of the pumpkin with 5 fish hooks. Cover the paper and hooks with honey, then sprinkle with cinnamon. Then on top of that carefully place 5 egg yolks.  Over that (carefully) cover it all with cooking oil — you want to try and keep the layers though some stuff will float.
Once you have filled the pumpkin with the oil (fill it to about 2 inches below the top of the pumpkin.  You now need 5  floating wicks.  Light the wicks and let burn for one hour, repeat the lighting and burning for one hour for 5 days (so make sure you have enough oil in there) After 5 days go to a river with it. Offer the pumpkin to Oshun with 5 cents.

Ochun Love Bath

This is an easy bath for those of you who have no experience or want to work with Ochun. The bath will help you attract a lover at a club or bar.  It will help your confidence and increase your flirting skills, making you more attractive to the kind of person you want to attract when you go out on the town. 

Cinnamon sticks
Champagne or a Cider
5 of your perfumes or colognes
Patchouli perfume or oil

Now there is two ways you can do this and they both bring good results. You can either fill your tub and do this or put everything in a bucket, shower then throw it on top of you. If you are going to take a shower or that your in a rush to go to the club or something, take a bucket and add warm water to it. Get a small pot and add some water and boil the patchouli, hops and cinnamon sticks together. Once it comes to a boil you are going to have to strain it and add the liquid to your bucket of water. Add an entire beer and some of the cider or champagne to the bath. Add a little bit of honey and depending on your perfumes or colognes, spray or pour from each of the bottles.

Once you have done that, light 5 small yellow candles (tea lights if possible, otherwise use the smallest yellow candles you can find, like birthday candles or if you have to, use votive candles) and call upon Oshun’s essence and tell her what the bath is for. You shower normally and after you have rinsed off your soapy water you then throw the bucket all over your body. Now you might feel a little bit sticky because of the beer and cider but this will make everyone  stick to you. Air dry yourself.

When you get dressed for going out, make sure you dab a bit of each perfume that you put into your bath onto yourself.  I recommend: one dab on each breast, one dab on your pudenda, one dab on the inner part of each thigh. It would be best to incorporate gold jewelry into your outfit, as well as the color yellow in your clothing.
