Experience the Healing Power of Eucalypto Rapé from the Master Rapé Collection
Introducing Eucalypto Rapé – a traditional snuff used by various indigenous tribes of South America, predominantly from the tribal people of Brazil and Perú. This finely ground powder is blown into each nostril through a bone or bamboo pipe called a ‘Tepi’ and is ceremoniously prepared by specific members of the tribe. Among the different types of ashes used, the most common come from tsunu, Murici, Yarumo, and Inga native trees.
What is Rapé?
Rapé, pronounced ‘ha-pey’, has been used for centuries by various indigenous tribes for its healing and cleansing properties. Traditional Rapés contain a ground blend of plants, tree barks, seeds, and ash. Each tribe has its own formula, and the snuff is typically made in small batches according to the specific needs of the person being treated or the ceremony’s occasions.
Connecting to the Spirit of Nature
In some tribes, it is women who gather the ingredients and make Rapé while in others, it is prepared by the tribe’s reputable healer. These snuffs are very powerful and 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
Using 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.
A study published on PubMed in 2014 reported that Rapé has anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and anti-tumor properties. It also found that the snuff had potential therapeutic uses for the treatment of Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease and depression.
