Blend Caapi & Cat’s Claw paste| 50% Banisteriopsis caapi & 50% Uncaria tomentosa | 30:1 Extract

This superb paste blend is made from natural spring water and freshly harvested B. caapi and Uncaria Tomentosa.  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 & Cat’s Claw 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 very own Caapi & Cat’s Claw paste. We call this concentrate the ‘pure gold’ of both plants. This Caapi & Cat’s Claw paste is water soluble.

For every kilo of Caapi & Cat’s Claw paste, we use 30 kg of B. caapi and Uncaria Tomentosa.

Master Plant Teacher Blend

Amazonian tribes 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 extraordinary properties that have drawn worldwide attention. It is the main ingredient of the ritual medicine known as Ayahuasca; it belongs to the Malpighiaceae family and has been traditionally used by countless South American indigenous people  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 legendary plant, arguably one of the most fascinating and culturally rich plants on earth.

Cat’s claw (Uncaria tomentosa) is a large, woody vine that derives its name from its thorns that grow along the vine and resemble the claws of a cat. Two closely related species of Uncaria are  well-known in the rainforests: U. tomentosa and U. guianensis. Both South American Uncaria species are used by the indigenous peoples of the Amazon rainforest in very similar ways and have long histories of use. Cat’s claw (U. tomentosa) is sacred and powerful for the Aguaruna, Asháninka, Cashibo, Conibo, and Shipibo tribes of Perú for at least 2,000 years.

For shipping to all countries except the USA, we offer two types of shipping:
    • Registered shipping: This comes with tracking and is faster than our free shipping.
    • Free shipping: For this service no tracking is available. It tends to be half as quick as the registered shipping. But hey, if you're not in a hurry and tracking is not important please do use this reliable shipping option!
For shipping to Canada we also offer DHL Express on certain orders  
For shipping to the USA, we offer four types of shipping: Registered PostNL: This option ships using PostNL, the national postal service of The Netherlands. Once the package arrives in the US, the USPS take over the shipping. Orders can be tracked with the tracking tool found at Free shipping: There is no tracking available for this reliable, but slower shipping method. Packages ship with PostNL and then are handed over to the USPS and deliveries may take up to 30 days. This option is not always available, depending on what you are ordering and where you are shipping to. Registered via NY: Depending on which state you are shipping to, this option will be available in order to try and ensure that there are no delays to your package as it enters the US. Packages are shipped first of all with PostNL to a NY forwarding address and then, from there, shipped on to you. We will update you on the tracking once your order is shipped from the Netherlands and then again once it is forwarded from NY.  Updates can take up to 24 hours because we work in different time zones around the world.
When you place an order in our web shop, you will automatically see the shipping options that are available, depending on your cart contents and the US state you are shipping to. For different states we use different methods.
Free Shipping from USA: For customers ordering only our Mimosa hostilis Hidden Valley and/or Mexican MHRBs, we have also established a warehouse that will exclusively ship to our customers from within the US.  This has the advantage of offering tracked shipping without having to pass through customs and a delivery time of only 3-4 working days. Orders will be shipped with USPS Priority mail.  This service is available for Mimosa only orders.  Any other products will need to ordered separately and will be shipped from the Netherlands.   Good to know: All of our orders are packed and shipped discreetly with only the obligatory information such as shipping and return address on the outside. Registered orders outside of Europe are sent with PostNL who hand your order over to the national postal service of your country. For instance in the US, packages are handed over to the USPS. Registered orders within Europe are sent with DPD. Fast and trackable at all times. Our Free shipping option is slow(er) but very reliable too. Estimated shipping time for outside Europe is between two to four weeks depending on postal flows.
For valuable orders we would advise choosing the Registered option.
