What is Rapé?
Rapé, pronounced “ha-pey,” is a traditional snuff used by indigenous tribes in South America, particularly in Brazil and Peru. It is made from a finely ground blend of plants, tree barks, seeds, and ashes, with each tribe having its own unique formula. The snuff is blown into each nostril using a bone or bamboo pipe called a Tepi.
Connecting to the Spirit of Nature
Rapé is typically prepared by specific members of the tribe, such as the tribe’s reputable healer or women who gather the ingredients. The snuff is prepared in small batches according to the specific needs of the person being treated or the ceremony’s occasions. The use of Rapé is believed to restore our connection to the spirit of nature while invoking power to bring about physical and spiritual healing.
Tepi or Kuripe
Rapé can be administered using either a Tepi or Kuripe. The Tepi is used when one person administers the snuff to another person, while the Kuripe is for self-application. 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. The Kuripe is a V-shaped applicator that connects the nostril to the mouth when blowing the snuff into the nose.
Opening the Body’s Energy Channels
Many tribes believe that Rapé facilitates the flow and clearing of the body’s energy channels, known as chakras, which facilitates a sense of grounding and connection to the earth. Some also believe that it frees the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual bodies from disease, opens the third-eye chakra, and decalcifies the pineal gland. Rapé is also said to clear mental fog and confusion, eliminate negative thought patterns, and expand spiritual feelings.
