Ecuadorian Matico Rapé | Matico Cleanse| Guarumo (Cecropia peltata) & Matico (Piper aduncum)  | #49

This is a mild snuff, subtle, and full of light.

Ecuadorian Matico Rapé / Matico Cleanse was prepared using one of the finest aromatic ingredients from the upper Amazon jungle and Andean Mountains:  Piper aduncum.  Also known as Matico. Throughout this South American region, many indigenous people use Piper Aduncum leaves as an antiseptic. As a wound healer that stops bleeding and prevents infections.

The second ingredient in this special Ecuadorian Matico Rapé blend is the ash made from the unmistakable silver leaves of the Guarumo tree, also known as Yarumo or Embauba in Colombia. Guarumo (Cecropia peltata) is widely used locally as a cure for asthma and is thought to be useful in treating a wide variety of other ailments.

With a smooth hint of herbal scent, this Ecuadorian Matico Rapé/ Matico Cleanse has an uplifting and gentle aromatic effect. It is the perfect choice to speed up healing after having a cold. Excellent for increasing and purifying your brain’s blood flow.

This exclusive Ecuadorian Matico Rapé was made in the Chocó bioregion of the Ecuadorian Andes. Right where the lowlands meet the mountain rainforest and the rivers flow pristine from the highlands. This is the place where our Waking Herbs family project is blossoming while the hummingbirds fly around us. This blend was made with all the love and kind intentions from all of our team to offer you wellbeing, abundance, and joy.

What is Rapé?

Rapé, pronounced ‘ha-pey’ in Portuguese, is a traditional snuff used by various indigenous tribes of South America. Predominantly tribal people from Brazil and Peru. Rapé blends contain a ground mixture of plants, tree bark, seeds, and ash. The fine powder is blown into each nostril through a bone or bamboo pipe called a ‘Tepi or ‘Kuripe’. The Tepi applicator is a long blow pipe that connects the nostril of the receiver to the mouth of the person that administers the snuff. The Kuripe is for self-application. The V-shaped applicator connects the nostril to the mouth allowing the snuff to be self-blown into the nose.

Each tribe has its own rapé formula and usually, it is women who gather the ingredients. The selection, mixture, and grinding process are regarded as a ritual only to be performed by a reputable healer. The snuff is typically made in small batches according to the specific needs of the person being treated or the ceremony’s occasion.

The use of Rapé aims to restore our connection to nature and a sense of grounding. It clears mental fog and confusion eliminating negative thought patterns. These powerful snuffs bring about physical and spiritual wellness.
