Chango is the Orisha of thunder and lightening in Yoruba faith and other traditions of west African origin. Chango is a very masculine warrior/defender god, as much of a lover as a fighter. Depend on him for strength, protection, energy, and the will to get the job done. Depending on region and translations, his name is spelled Sango, Shango, Chango or Xango.

Chango is represented in Santeria by the Catholic Saint, Santa Barbara, because she is usually depicted in a red cloak with a castle in the background. However, there is nothing feminine about Chango! In fact in some stories, he is the son of the Orisha Obatala and the ferryman of fire and Orisha of volcanoes, Aganju. This would explain his favorite colors, red and white, since Obatala is Orisha of White Cloth. More often, Chango is son of the Orisha ocean goddess Yemaya. It is said that once Chango was a human king of Yoruba, and he became deified to Orisha status after his death.

Chango is a womanizer to the extreme, and women love him. He had three wives, Oshun, Oba and Oya. Each of these Orisha are extremely powerful women ruling major forces of nature, which give some idea of Chango's power himself. As a god of war and justice, he carries a double-headed axe. As Orisha of thunder and lightning, he is often compared with the Greek god Zeus and the Roman god Jupiter, both of whom are powerful kings of their own pantheons.

My Chango oil is as passionate as the Orisha. Since one of his favorite colors is red, I use a Dragon's Blood oil base. Use it as an offering to the Orisha of Lightening, and to bring his passionate nature into your own being. I use the number six in his formulation, since that is his corresponding number. His sacred day is Friday, so that is when I potion up Chango oil.

Natural Magick deity oils are made with reverence and research to be pleasing devotional blends for the gods and goddesses they are named for. I research legend and lore, and try to use oils of plants that grew in the lands where the deity originated or rules. The Natural Magick process of using planetary and elemental influences, correspondence, and high quality ingredients is especially appropriate for honoring the gods and bringing their qualities into our lives.

Anoint yourself to attune to these deities, or pour into offering bowls or aromatherapy lamps, or anoint statues or fetish objects. I love to give them to priests or priestesses who run open circles or invoke our patron gods and goddesses.

These oils are in beautiful round 1/2 ounce bottles, blended in 100% jojoba oil, so with any care they should last a very long time. They are priced according to the ingredients requested by the gods.
