What is Rapé?
Rapé is a traditional snuff used by various indigenous tribes in South America, primarily from the tribal people of Brazil and Peru. It is a finely ground powder that is blown into each nostril through a bone or bamboo pipe called a ‘Tepi’.’ Each tribe has its own formula, and it is ceremoniously prepared by specific members of the tribe. Traditional Rapés contain a ground blend of plants, tree barks, seeds, and ash. The most common types of ashes used come from tsunu, Murici, Yarumo, and Inga native trees.
Connecting to the Spirit of Nature
Rapé is not just a physical experience, but a spiritual one as well. In some tribes, women gather the ingredients and make Rapé, while in others, it is prepared by the tribe’s reputable healer. The snuff is typically made in small batches according to the specific needs of the person being treated or the ceremony’s occasion. 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 ‘Tepi’ is a long blowpipe 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. Some believe that 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, decalcifies the pineal gland, clears mental fog and confusion, eliminates negative thought patterns, but mainly brings back our breath awareness and expands our spiritual feelings.
