Kuripe or Tepi
Traditionally, Rapé is administered through either the Kuripe or Tepi. The Kuripe is for self-administration, while the Tepi is used when blowing the snuff for another person. The V-shaped applicator or Kuripe connects the nostril to the mouth, while the Tepi is a long blow pipe that connects the nostril of the receiver with the mouth of the blower, who then blows the rapé into the nose of the receiver.
Opening the Chakras
In general, the tribes believe Rapé facilitates the opening and clearing of the chakras, facilitates a sense of grounding and connection to the earth. Some think it supports the release of disease from the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual bodies. Furthermore, some say that using rapé opens the third-eye chakra, decalcifies the pineal gland, clears mental fog and confusion. Finally, it releases negative thought patterns and most of all it supports our connection to the breath and expands our connection to Spirit.
While there is limited scientific research on the effects of Rapé, some studies have suggested that it may have anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties. Additionally, some researchers have suggested that the use of Rapé may have potential therapeutic benefits for individuals with substance abuse disorders and depression.
