I'm beginning to work with eshu and his offerings could keep indefinitely on his shrine I have set up.....candy and a little bottle of alcohol. but during ritual I am going to try using cigar smoke( not going to inhale it myself). but the info I read says his days are Sunday Monday so I was hoping there was some offering I could do weekly on those days on his shrine.  right now I feel like I'm stealing if I remove the original candy and want to put new candy,so I haven't. I'm trying to wait till I've got it right,I don't want a grumpy eshu.

So, here's a question: are you providing offerings to be consumed by Eshu, or collected?

If for consumption, there's no reason to keep used offerings on His altar - you can wait a period of time and then dispose of them in some fashion.  It isn't stealing to remove offerings that have been accepted and used.

If for collection, you might want to think about more permanent items than food/drink.  For example, Sekhmet wears a hematite bracelet I gave Her.  It is meant to remain with Her physically and spiritually, whereas the food/drink I give my deities are meant to nourish Their ka and then be consumed by me.
