Are there specific colors associated with each Orisha, and why?"

The colors are often used in rituals, ceremonies, and offerings to connect with and honor the respective Orishas. 

Here are some common color associations:

Eshu (Elegua): Red and black. These colors symbolize Eshu's dual nature, representing both life and death.

Ogun: Green and black. Green symbolizes the forests and nature associated with Ogun, while black represents the iron and war aspects.
