Spells, Ebbos and Adimus
Spells are essentially used in the Yoruban tradition. They vary for different purposes whether it is to open the roads for blessings, love matters and success and to ward off any evil that my be coming your way. Ebbos (cleansings) are done to clean the path of mankind so the astros fall into place and assist us in what we need. They could be sacrifice to the orishas or a simple cleansing with fruits or a bath. Adimus (offerings) are made for the orishas to appease them for something they helped you with which might be their favorite food or a simple arrangement of flowers or a bottle of perfume.
