Ginger plays an important and unavoidable role in different cultures with a wide range of applications in traditional medicine. The ginger, dried and finely mixed in this blend, comes from family “chakras” (Kichwa family farms) in the Ecuadorian Amazon close to the Rio Napo region. With no additives or chemicals added to them, these ginger roots are planted next to wild turmeric (Curcuma longa), which gives them a special flavor and power.

The silver Guarumo leaves in this mix carry calcium and minerals that help awaken the magic particles of the blend.

Exclusive Wild Ginger Rapé was made in the Chocó region of the Ecuadorian Andes foothills. Where lowlands meet the cloud rainforests and the rivers flow pristine from the highlands. This is exactly the place where our Wakingherbs family project is blossoming while the hummingbirds fly around us.

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.
