Murici Rapé: A Powerful and Healing Snuff from the Amazon Basin
Experience the healing power of the Amazon with our Murici Rapé, a traditional snuff used by various indigenous tribes of South America. This rapé is part of our Master Rapé Collection, which features blends directly sourced from our dear friend Carlos, who has years of experience traveling the jungle of Brazil and learning from indigenous communities.
What is Rapé?
Rapé, pronounced ‘ha-pey’, is a finely ground powder blown into each nostril through a bone or bamboo pipe called a ‘Tepi’. It is traditionally used by tribal people of Brazil and Peru, with each tribe having its own formula and preparation methods. The ingredients typically include a blend of plants, tree barks, seeds, and ash, with the most common types of ashes used coming from tsunu, Murici, Yarumo, and Inga native trees.
Connecting to the Spirit of Nature
Rapé is typically prepared by specific members of the tribe, with women gathering the ingredients and making it in some tribes, and the tribe’s reputable healer preparing it in others. These snuffs are very powerful, profoundly healing, and cleansing on many levels, aiming 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 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, with the V-shaped applicator connecting the nostril to the mouth when blowing the snuff into the nose.
Opening the Body’s Energy Channels
Rapé is believed to facilitate 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 is also said to free the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual bodies from disease, open the third-eye chakra, decalcify the pineal gland, clear mental fog and confusion, and eliminate negative thought patterns. Using Rapé brings back our breath awareness and expands our spiritual feelings.
