She is kind and noble with their children, who has great patience. But when not calm anything, gets angry when this happens it causes calamities to the person who offended her.
She was wife of Babalu Aye, Aggayú, Orula and Oggun. She likes to hunt, cut grass and handle the machete. She is astute and indomitable. Her punishments are harsh and your anger is terrible, but righteous.
Whoever has her crowned should not utter her name without first touching the ground with the fingertips and kissing them traces of powder. All the Orishas are born of Yemaya and therefore participate in the ceremony of the River, where also lives Oshun.
