Exclusive Blue Lotus Rapé | Egyptian Lotus Blend | Yarumo & Nymphaea caerulea | #60
This exclusive blue lotus rapé is a fusion blend of Ecuadorian Yarumo and Sacred blue lotus bringing together a wonderful tree and tradition from South America with a magic plant from Egypt. Please try our Homemade Blue Lotus Rapé and find out that this is a solid beautiful rapé.
This exclusive blue lotus rapé uses the blue lotus Nymphaea caerulea which is a revered plant that was once used during rituals in the ancient Egypt. The lotus is prized for its beauty, its seductive scent, and their symbolism, as well as for their consciousness altering effects. The sky blue and sometimes purple flowers are day-blooming, and star-shaped with upright pointed petals that grow atop a long stem, sometimes 4-5 feet above the water. It grows along rivers and lakeshores, and its leaves are round and flat, which sit atop the waters surface. Egyptians used this Nymphaea caerulea to induce ecstatic states, euphoria, feelings of well being, and for remedies and visions. Some evidence also suggests that N. caerulea had been used to relieve pain, increase memory, promote sensual desire, and it was viewed as an essential key to good health.
The Amazonian plants used in this GOLDEN BLEND include the silver Yarumo leaves that carry calcium and minerals to transport the magic particles of the blend.
This exclusive blue lotus rapé was made in the Chocó region of the Ecuadorian Andes, where the lowlands meet the forest of the mountains and the rivers flow pristine from the highlands and páramos. This is the place where this family project is blossoming while the hummingbirds fly around us. This blend was made with all the love and the intentions for all of us to find guidance, abundance and joy.
This is a strong snuff, profound and full of light!
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, seeds, most commonly combined with a pure form from the Amazon and an ash called tsunu, or others like Murici, Yarumo, or Inga. The rapé is 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.
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. Furthermore some say that using rapé opens the third-eye chakra, decalcifies the pineal gland, clears mental fog and confusion. Finally it releases negative thought patterns and most of all it supports our connection to the breath and expands our connection to Spirit.
