Has anyone worked with or honor Hestia? How has she communicated with you and what is your general feeling you get when working with her?

Hestia is the chief goddess in my practice and I was drawn towards Hellenism through Her. Though I'm not recon in my style of worship and wouldn't consider myself a card-carrying Hellenist I do have a kitchen window shrine dedicated to Hestia with a statue, flowers (fresh in the winter but artificial in the summer as the sun wilts fresh flowers before they can even open), incense, a little red pot for libations and one of those church style sanctuary lights which burn for three days so I can keep a flame always burning for Her.

I offer Her daily prayers, usually in the form of the Orphic and Homeric Hymns as well as personal connection time. My experiences of Hestia is as a more complex goddess than She first seems, though I find Her to be infinitely patient and gentle natured. I tend to offer Her wine, fruit, essential oils and barley. On a practical level I honour Her by keeping the house clean and regularly having guests round for dinner, though I love to cook so that's no hardship!
