Ritual. Process. Practice.
Over generations Tainos have adopted western religions, rarely recognizing their own cemies hidden within layers of formality and marble. But we have always practiced, creating and repeating rituals that included fire, water and faith.
Ojala Threads Atabey Velon marries our ancestral reverence for our goddess Atabey and the modern practice of candle magic. We sourced our velones (candles) from Original Botanica located in the Bronx. Each is made in the Dominican Republic and infused with magic activated by your faith.
Your velon features a reusable sticker featuring Atabey and our recommendations for how to engage Atabey, and which offerings she will respond to. But keep in mind that there is no wrong answer when spirit and ancestors are concerned. Intuition should be your guide.

I gifted this velon to my friend for her birthday. She absolutely loved it. The fact that it came from DR via a botanica in the Bronx and was already infused made it the perfect gift. I hope this velon brings her clarity in this next year of life.
