Bashawa Rapé: Experience the Power of Indigenous Healing
Indigenous communities in the Amazon basin have been using Rapé for centuries as a traditional snuff for physical and spiritual healing. Bashawa Rapé, part of our Master Rapé Collection, is a unique blend of ingredients sourced directly from Carlos, a dear friend with years of experience traveling the jungle of Brazil and learning from indigenous communities. This powerful snuff is known for its ability to cleanse the bowels, promote blood circulation, and provide antioxidant properties. However, it is recommended for experienced Rapé users due to its high vibration aura.
What is Rapé?
Rapé, pronounced ‘ha-pey’, is a finely ground powder snuff that is blown into each nostril through a bone or bamboo pipe called a ‘Tepi’. It is a traditional snuff used by various indigenous tribes of South America, predominantly from the tribal people of Brazil and Peru. Each tribe has its own formula, and the snuff is ceremoniously prepared by specific members of the tribe. Traditional Rapés contain a ground blend of plants, tree barks, seeds, and ash. Among the different types of ashes used, the most common come from tsunu, Murici, Yarumo, and Inga native trees.
Connecting to the Spirit of Nature
The use of Rapé aims to restore our connection to the spirit of nature while invoking power to bring about physical and spiritual healing. In some tribes, women gather the ingredients and make Rapé, while in others, it is prepared by the tribe’s reputable healer. These snuffs are very powerful, profoundly healing, and cleansing on many levels. They are typically made in small batches according to the specific needs of the person being treated or the ceremony’s occasions.
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 ‘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 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
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. 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.
