Menta Rapé: A Powerful and Healing Snuff from the Amazon Basin
Experience the power of nature with Menta Rapé, a traditional snuff used by indigenous tribes of South America for centuries. This unique blend is part of our Master Rapé Collection, sourced directly from our friend Carlos who has spent years traveling the Amazon basin to learn from indigenous communities and create his own blends with unique ingredients.
What is Rapé?
Rapé, pronounced ‘ha-pey’, is a finely ground powder made from a blend of plants, tree barks, seeds, and ash. It is blown into each nostril through a bone or bamboo pipe called a ‘Tepi’ or ‘Kuripe’. Each tribe has its own formula and is ceremoniously prepared by specific members of the tribe. The most common ashes used come from tsunu, Murici, Yarumo, and Inga native trees.
Connecting to the Spirit of Nature
For many indigenous tribes, Rapé is a powerful tool for healing and connecting to the spirit of nature. Women in some tribes 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 occasions. These snuffs are very powerful, profoundly healing and cleansing on many levels.
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
The 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. 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.
