Yucuna Rapé Aphrodisiac Antioxidant | Inga edulis & Clavo Huasca (Tynanthus panurensis) | #01
This Yacuna Rapé was made using Inga edulis and Tynanthus panurensis (Clavo Huasca). Inga plants are known for their antioxidant properties. On the other hand, the Shipibo-Conibo, Kayapó, and Assurini Indian tribes in the Amazon rainforest regard ‘Clavo Huasca’ as a remedy for male impotence and weak erections. It is an effective aphrodisiac for both men and women.
This Yucuna Rapé was made for us by a Yucuna healer called William that has been making rapé his entire life together with his community and family.
Yucuna people, also known as Yukuna, Jukuna, Hurumi, Imike, Kameheya, or Piyoti, speak a dialect that belongs to the Arawak language family. They currently live dispersed on high terraces on the banks of the lower half of Mirití-Paraná and Caquetá rivers near the village of La Pedrera in Colombia, South America. Their current population is about a thousand individuals. Pottery found from archeological sites speaks of their existence since the fifth-century a.d.
Traditionally, Yucuna tribes use rapé during “la ceremonia de la palabra” or “the word ceremony”. During these gatherings in the “maloka” or communal roundhouse, the elders meet all night to discuss important spiritual and community matters. Each group has its own preferred ingredient when going through the recitations. It is believed that the Yucunas received rapé at the beginning of time as a gift from the Gods.
What is Rapé?
Rapé, pronounced ‘ha-pey’ in Portuguese, is a traditional snuff used by various indigenous tribes of South America. Predominantly by tribal people from Brazil and Peru. Rapé blends are 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-applicated into the nose.
Each tribe has its own Rapé formula. In most tribes it is women who gather the ingredients in the forest. 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 a person 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.
