“Spiritual Essence”, Colombian Caapi Rapé

Ancestral knowledge and communication with earth spirits. It opens doors of light and helps balance darkness.
This Colombian Caapi Rapé is made exclusively for us by a friend that has been working with plants and working with healers from many parts around South America. The Ayahuasca vine leaves used in our Caapi Rapé are Banisteriopsis caapi yellow leaves and harvested in the Colombian part of the Amazon.

People that love our Caapi Rapé often also like our Bobinsana Rapé, Zazara Rapé, Samsara Rapé and our Passion Flower Rapé. In order to work with rapé you might consider buying a Kuripe or Tepi.

What is Rapé?

Rapé, pronounced ‘ha-pey’ is a tradition used by various indigenous tribes of South America, predominantly from the tribes people of Brazil and Peru. Rapé is a snuff which is blown into each nostril through a pipe known as a ‘Tepi’, which is either made from a hollow bone or bamboo. Each tribe has their own formula of plants, trees or seeds which are most commonly combined with a pure form of sacred plants from the Amazon. Furthermore an ash called tsunu, or others like Murici, Yarumo, or Inga, which are prepared in a ritualistic way by specific members of the tribe.

Spirit of Nature

In some tribes, it is the women who gather the ingredients and make the Rapé, and others are made by the healer of the tribe. Typically they are made in small batches with specific intentions for the ceremony or person being treated. These are very powerful, profoundly healing and cleansing on many levels. The use of Rapé aims to connect one to the spirits of nature while invoking that power to bring about physical and spiritual healing.

Kuripe or Tepi

Traditionally, it is administered through either the Tepi or Kuripe. The Kuripe is a for self-administration and the Tepi is used when blowing the snuff for another person. The V-shaped applicator or Kuripe, connects the nostril to the mouth. 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 earliest example in South America is the bone inhaler which Junius Bird found near a snuff box made of whalebone,  in the pre-agrarian site Huaca Prieta, on the coast of Peru, around 1600 BC.

Making Rapé

Psychotropic rapé snuffs are little known in North and Central America but are widely common in South America and the West Indies. In order to make snuff, leaves of the plant are dried in the wind or sun, over a fire or on a pot placed upside  down on the hot coals. The dried leaves are crushed, pulverized and sifted often. Nutshells and pots can serve  as mortars.

Opening the Chakras

In general, the tribes believe Rapé facilitates the opening and clearing of the chakras, facilitates a sense of grounding and connection to the earth, some think it supports the release of disease from the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual bodies, and some say that opens the third-eye chakra, decalcifies the pineal gland, clears mental fog and confusion, releases negative thought patterns, supports our connection to the breath and expands our connection to Spirit.
