Orisha of the Forest and Herbs
An Orisha is a spirit that reflects one of the manifestations of God in Africa's Yoruba religion. Many Orishas have found their way throughout the Americas via the Atlantic slave trade and are now expressed in practices as varied as Santeria, Candomble, Trinidad Orisha, and Oyotunji.
Aja also goes by the name "Wild Wind" is the Orisha of the forest and all animals living within it. She also holds the knowledge of potions and herbal medicines and passes on that knowledge through the Yoruba culture.
Aja is considered one of the rarest Earth Gods because she reveals herself to humans and not to harm or scare them. Most deities avoid direct interaction with humans. However, Aja is unlike the others, she extended her help to humans in order to show us the importance of balance in nature. She taught her people the essential respect that humanity must have toward earth.
