Seven African Powers Bracelets – back by customers’ demand!
Bracelet with the colours of the Seven African Powers – white for Obatala, yellow for Ochum, red for Shango, purple for Oya, blue for Yemanya, green for Oggum and black for Eleggua. Wear it to honour the Orishas and get their protection, specially when you feel negative energy is too much around you! Bracelets are made with a wire core, double wrapped for extra durability and with a secure lobster clasp. I have added to each bracelet a handmade African Fair Trade clay bead – they are all different, making a unique piece of each bracelet.
Eye Of Protection – One Of A Kind Charm Bracelet And Earrings Set
Set of bracelet and earrings featuring seven gorgeous eye charms – the eye charm is used mainly as a protection against negativity and curses, but it is also a symbol of deity’s providence. The blue and red glass dangles also follow the tradition of Mediterranean evil eye charms, as these strong, positive colours enhance the magical power of the metal charms.
Hand Of Fatima / Hamsa Bracelet And Earrings Set – Available In Red, Blue And Green
The Hand Of Fatima / Hand Of Miriam/Mary / Hamsa amulet is probably the most extended and used protection amulets of the Mediterranean magic, as it is used by Muslims, Jews and Catholics alike. This charm is used both as a protection against evil eye and curses, as well as a bringer of good luck and fortune. To add even more positive power to each of these sets, a handmade evil eye glass bead has been placed in the middle of the bracelet.
Catholic Rosary I – Marie
This rosary is a reduced version of a regular Catholic rosary – ten beads for the Hail Mary prayers and one for the Lord’s Prayer, which is to be repeated five times. This type of rosary is more portable than a regular 50 + 5 bead rosary, without losing any of its power as a protection amulet. This unique piece features a beautiful winged cross, symbol of Angelic power and of the Holy Spirit, and the connection charm depicts the Jesus Of The Sacred Heart on one side, and Mary Of The Sacred Heart on the other. All beads are faceted aubergine glass, a colour strongly related to Christianity – in Spanish, this colour is often called “Nazarene Purple”, because many images of Christ are dressed in this colour, as well as the clothes of the Nazarenes, the penitents that accompany the processions during the Holy Week.

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.

This could be perfect for a shell/bone/rune oracle, to store incense or stones, or to be offered as a gift on your Ancestor Altar /Boveda Espiritual. One Of A Kind.
Spiritual Herbal Bath – Seven African Powers
Seven powerful, organic, homegrown and wildharvested herbs are united in this bath, representing the Seven African Powers. This bath is made to eliminate negativity, cleanse your energy, unblock your paths and tune with the energy of the Orishas. The herbs are:
Eleggua – Wormwood: unblocks the paths;
Obatala – Oak Tree: gives stability and clarity;
Yemaya – Almond Tree: brings creativity and love;
Ochum – Orange Tree: brings passion and sweetness;
Oya – Lavender: brings business and connects with Ancestors;
Chango – Fig Tree: brings strength and justice;
Oggum – Wild Grapevine: brings endurance and truth.
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. Remember not to add any soap, herbal salts or any other bath product to the water (so we recommend you shower before doing it). Dry yourself gently, patting on the skin or leave it to air dry if temperaure allows.
Starting today, Thursday August 2, and until supplies last (those pictured are exactly the ones we have), every order* will receive one of these gorgeous Eye Of Providence charms. I have enhanced the charms with red glass beads because I think red is a wonderful colour for luck, expansion and strength, elements that compliment the Eye Of Providence charm, which is an ancient symbol of protection, wealth and empowerment. As always, no mimimum order is required!

Tetragrammaton Charms I and II (Sold Separately)
Wire-wrapped charm featuring a detailed embossing of Eliphas Levi’s Tetragrammaton Pentagram, which was created for protection in all areas. Tetragrammaton means “the four letters” and correspond to the letters YHWH, which refer to the name Yahweh. In the Hebrew tradition, the name Yahweh should not be spoken as it could be blasphemed, so the acronym stands for it and instead, mankind should name Yahweh as “the Lord” or any other appropriate substitution. On the back of the medal, inscribed inside the Star Of David, the letters read TZION, which is another name for the city of Jerusalem.
Eliphas Levi is an essential author on the history of ceremonial magic. Occultist, writer and spiritualist, he designed the pentagram as a recreation of the universe, both at its macrocosm and microcosm states, conjuring wholeness, balance and protection for the wearer. This is what you can see on the front of the medal.
Owl Spirit Charm
The owl is a symbol of knowledge, of growth, of the power of the mind and its ability to see beyond the surface and penetrate the mysteries of wisdom. If you need to find more focus, concentration and insight in your life, this charm could be your helper.
All Saint’s Cross/ Scapular Cross Charm
The All Saint’s Cross, also called Scapular cross, is a very popular protection charm in Latin Santeria. On the front, the cross depicts The Holy Spirit, Jesus Christ, Saint Joseph, Saint Christopher and the Virgin Mary. On the back, it depicts Our Lady Of Fatima, Saint Anthony Of Padua and the Holy Child Of Atocha. It is used for general protection against negativity, harmful witchcraft and any kind of dangerous spirit.
Saint Benedict’s Charm
Saint Benedict’s medal is one of the oldest and most powerful charms of Christianity against any kind of negative spirit activity. Although I don’t personally believe in possession, I do know for a fact that negative, vengeful, destructive spirits do exist, and that many times they torment and feed on living beings. I have used this medal many times on customers with terrible nightmares, poltergeist activity in their homes, haunted spaces, etc., with great results.
Each charm has double wire-wrapping, making it almost impossible to break or come loose. On the top, each charm has a lobster clasp so you can hang it very easily from a chain or cord. If you want the clasp removed, let me know when making your purchase.

EDITED – The Water Spirit box has been sold, and the doll and second box have been listed at our Etsy shop.
Those of you who have been reading this blog for a while will remember this pic, taken last summer at our roof garden. It’s our Mirabilis Jalapa plant, grown from seeds that we brought from a ravine in Anaga. After flowering all summer and giving us an extremely generous amount of seeds, the plant withered quickly and died. With much care, we dug the root and left it to dry all winter on a warm and dark place beside the kitchen.
Yesterday it was, as you know, Resurrection Sunday. The root had been drying for about 5 months, so we thought it was a very propitious date to wake it up. We took it our of its dormancy, looking like this:
We cleaned off all small roots, carved a mouth and eyes, and inserted two antique jet beads in the eye holes, taken from the necklace I wore at our wedding.
The root spirit bed was made using a rose soap box I got from a dearly loved friend. A mattress was created with herbs, flower petals and an antique handkerchief from my collection of fabrics.
Several charms, bones, seeds and other gifts were placed in the box along with the root.
The ritual for waking it up was made then – I’m not giving details on this, sorry. We gave the spirit offerings of milk, honey and blood, and kept a candle lit all night. Along the next weeks, we will continue to feed it and empower it, and very soon it will be one of the most powerful talismans in the Temple.
I have written this post to serve as an inspiration if you want to try at creating a spirit root talisman – but, I have to say, this is not a work for beginners. Not because the process is complex or secret – if you have made talismans before and make a little research, you will see it is really easy. If this is not a work for beginners it is because of the commitment it requires; this talisman has to be fed regularly, shouldn’t be abandoned and must be given tasks to perform; if abandoned, it could cause quite a bit of trouble around you. The talisman must be seen, and treated, as the living thing it is, and not as a charm or a curio.
Obviously, to have this project starting at planting a seed as we did has tremendous extra power; although it also works well with plants taken from the wild, taking care of the process from its very beginning (a wildharvested seed) to the natural end of the plant’s life creates a connection of love that is there since the very first moment of its existence. So, if you want to take a root from your wildharvesting areas, I would suggest that you start a relationship with the plant, by visiting and leaving offerings, way before you harvest the root, to strengthen the bond as much as possible.
Just one last note – do your botanical research, because many roots used for this type of craft are highly toxic and should be handled with gloves. I personally don’t believe that a poisonous plant makes a more powerful talisman than a non-poisonous one; it depends on the Witch, on her/his path and its specific needs. Dandelion, jalapa and other tuberous roots are quite safe to be used and make excellent vessels for spirits.
Bat Nut Charm – Spiritual Protection
Bat nuts are the seed of the Asian Trapa Bicornis plant, a traditional lucky food in China, usually cooked for spirit offerings. In Western Witchcraft it has been used as a powerful talisman, due to its resemblance to a two-faced devil’s head. In Santeria, Voodoo and Hoodoo, it is used to ward off negativity, and offered to Eleggua as he is often depicted as a two-faced deity too. This talisman has been enhanced with three beaded dangles – a brass crucifix, a mother of pearl heart and a starfish charm. It will protect you against negative spirits, evil eye, negative magic, etc. Perfect for hanging on the altar, over your bed or over your entry door.
Pentacle bookmarks for your Witchy library, Book Of Shadows, etc., made with artisan hand-dyed silk ribbon and wire wrapped beads. 48 cms/ 18,6 inches long, fit for even the largest journals. Each piece is a one of a kind.
Volcano Kingdom – Protection Necklace
A necklace with a strong Mediterrarean feel, inspired by the colours of our volcanic islands. Since red is a colour of protection against evil energies, it has been blessed for such intention, protecting you from negativity. It was made with red hand-dyed silk ribbon, and a wire-wrapped pendant featuring a black glass leaf, an evil-eye turkish bead, a skull bead and an ornate white and gold barrel shaped bead.

I have been a member of The Noble Pagan Forums since 2009, where I was invited to participate as an educator on African-origined religions. Due to the increasing work that House Of Eleggua meant I had to stop posting for a while, but now I finally have the time to resume my participation. The first educational post, a revised+extended edition of a blog post from 2011, has already been published this morning. More coming regularly!
