Discover the Healing Power of Awiri Rapé from the Master Rapé Collection
Awiri Rapé is a unique blend of finely ground plants, tree barks, seeds, and ash sourced directly from the biodiverse Amazon basin by our dear friend Carlos, who has years of experience traveling the jungle of Brazil and visiting indigenous communities to learn and gain inspiration from their ancestral knowledge. It is part of our Master Rapé Collection, a series of rapés that are ceremoniously prepared by specific members of each tribe according to their own formula.
What is Rapé?
Rapé, pronounced ‘ha-pey’, is a traditional snuff used by various indigenous tribes of South America, predominantly from the tribal people of Brazil and Peru. It is blown into each nostril through a bone or bamboo pipe called a ‘Tepi’ or ‘Kuripe’. The use of Rapé aims to restore our connection to the spirit of nature while invoking power to bring about physical and spiritual healing.
Connecting to the Spirit of Nature
Awiri Rapé is made by women who gather the ingredients and make Rapé according to the specific needs of the person being treated or the ceremony’s occasions. These snuffs are very powerful, profoundly healing and cleansing on many levels. The use of Rapé aims to restore our connection to the spirit of nature while invoking power to bring about physical and spiritual healing.
Tepi or Kuripe
Traditionally, Rapé is administered through either the ‘Tepi’ or ‘Kuripe’. The Tepi applicator is used when one person administers the snuff and another receives it. The ‘Kuripe’ is for self-application. The V-shaped applicator connects the nostril to the mouth when blowing the snuff into the nose.
Opening the Body’s Energy Channels
Awiri 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. It frees the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual bodies from disease. It is also said that using Rapé opens what is called the third-eye chakra, can decalcify the pineal gland and clears mental fog and confusion. It eliminates negative thought patterns, but mainly brings back our breath awareness and expands our spiritual feelings.
