Ekeko is one of the Central America gods of abundance – dressed as a travelling seller packed with goods, he is much revered in Santeria and every house and business has one to protect them in all areas.I have worked with him extensively and he is very generous!
These sets have been created completely from scratch by us. The Ekeko figurine (about 1,5 inches tall) was handsculpted and painted resembling the traditional ones, and the word “Suerte” (Luck) written in his belly. Besides the figurine, the set contains several items to offer to him:
- Three Orisha Money banknotes, so you always have financial abundance;
- A bag with lentils, rice, corn grains and one African fava bean, so you always have food on your table;
- A cowrie shell, to unblock your paths;
- Three beautiful Mulberry paper roses: red for romantic love, pink for family love, and white for spiritual love;
- A miniature wine bottle, so you always have something to celebrate;
- A charm holding three Huayruro seeds and a horseshoe, so you are always lucky.
- A vial of Abundance oil, for anointing candles, mojo bags, or even yourself.
You can also add any offerings you want – some traditional offerings are rum, cigars and cigarrettes, sweets, coins, small toys, and anything that represents your wishes.
The tray and the candle are NOT included – it is a suggestion of how to present the items in your home.

How to use it:
Option 1 – make a tea out of the herbs, let steep for seven mintes and strain. Take your regular bath and after you have finished pour it over your head and body while still warm; dry yourself gently, patting on the skin or leave it to air dry if temperaure allows.
Option 2 – pour the herbs on a muslin bag and place in the hot water of your bath. Immerse yourself in the water three times.
