Blend Caapi & Bobinsana paste | 50% Banisteriopsis caapi & 50% Calliandra angustifolia leaf | 30:1 Extract
This superb paste blend is made from natural spring water and freshly harvested B. caapi & Calliandra angustifolia. We use fresh vines, bark and leaves as opposed to dried so that ethereal oils do not get lost in the drying process of these plants. Together with our long-time supplier, who is also a well-known healer from the amazon, we prepare the Caapi & Bobinsana paste in stainless steel pots. We simmer the vines and branches for many hours with plenty of filtering steps along the way to ensure a clean product. We then slowly evaporate the liquid on low heat until it becomes our well-regarded B. caapi and Bobinsana paste. We call this concentrate the ‘pure gold’ of both plants. This B. caapi and Bobinsana paste is water soluble.
The power of this caapi & bobinsana paste is especially remarkable because the B. caapi lets you connect on a deeper level with the ‘spirit of Bobinsana’, which can potentially lead to emotional growth.

The amazon indigenous communities regard Banisteriopsis caapi as a ‘plant of the gods’. Known as a Master ‘Plant Teacher’, this giant woody vine grows in the lush Amazon rainforest of Perú, Ecuador, Colombia and Brazil, with many astonishing properties that have drawn worldwide attention. It belongs to the Malpighiaceae family and has been traditionally used by countless South American tribes inhabiting the Amazon for thousands of years. Known most commonly for its healing power, this vine is richly steeped in cultural mythology and tradition. Although it is highly regarded internationally it is still considered to be a very mysterious plant, arguably one of the most fascinating and culturally rich plants on earth.
Calliandra angustifolia is famous in the Amazon among local people and folk medicine. The Peruvian natives prepare an anti-inflammatory bark tincture with Calliandra angustifolia while other indigenous groups prepare a stimulant decoction of its roots for strength and energy. Many tribes adore this plant as a heart opener and heart energy elixir. It is often described that the Bobinsana lets somebody access ‘blocked emotions and to let go’. Bobinsana usually grows in moist soil along the riverbanks of the Amazon river where it adorns the landscape with exquisite pink flowers.
