Yaminawa Pao pereira Rapé | Pao pereira (Geissospermum vellosii) & Raiha (Psychotria cartagenensis) | #68

Yaminawa Rapé Pao Pereira is one of our strongest rapés. The synergy created in this blend comes from the combination of the very famous folk madicinal tree Pao pereira (Geissospermum vellosii) and the magic Raiha (Psychotria cartagenensis). The effect can be felt very fast and combines the clarity with the arousal of different senses. In the long term is believed to have special magic properties for the user. Yaminawa Pao pereira Rapé will be one of our new favourites we expect.

Yaminawa people: yaminawa means “”people of the axe”, but they have several autonyms like Bashonawá (“oposum people”). They are very closet o the Yawanawa people and with them they are developing new models of sustainability to protect the rainforest and engage with the outside world on their own terms, in order to protect their cultural and spiritual identity. Their homeland is Acre, Brazil.

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.
