Mambo Ezili Freda, an extremely magickal and beautiful lwa, whose full name is actually Metres Mambo Ezili Freda Daome. All these words make references to different aspects of this beautiful lwa.
She rules over love (romantic), luxury, gambling luck, abundance, refinement, and much more. She is associated with coolness and freshness and cleanliness. She demands cleanliness in her services.
Ezili Freda is known as Metres, or mistress, because she acts more like a mistress than a wife, although she is known to have three husbands. Her three husbands are the lwa: Ogoun Feray, Danbala, and Met Agwe Tawoyo. Due to this, Metres Ezili wears three gold rings, one for each of her husbands.
Mambo Ezili Freda rules over the heart, and because of this her veve (ritual drawing) is that of a heart with beautiful detailing. She can bring romantic love to a sevite and bless him or her with the riches of love.
She loves men, and hugs and kisses them. She also marries them quite often, conferring upon them gifts and blessings that she is well known for.
Don’t fall into any illusions though, because as sweet and sparkly as she is, she is also a very powerful Mambo. She spoils negative wanga with her mere presence. She spoils poison too. That is why one of her nicknames is Gate Sa. She ties very powerful wanga and conducts very powerful magick. In fact, most of the magick that I conduct on Freda’s point bears results in three days! When Freda wants to work, she does so and she does so extremely well.
She is very complex! She must be dealt with delicately and her services done to the T, otherwise she will refuse to help. Her service is very elegant and refined.
Her colors are white and pink. Gay men are said to be under her patronage. She loves all the good things in life. Freda is the need for perfection, the want, the desire. She always wants more, and when her needs cannot be met she falls into tears.
Mambo Ezili Freda is best served on Thursday, which is her sacred day.
