Rapé is medicine of South America peoples, originally used by Amazon tribes for thousands of years. Rapé is a fine powder that is blown into both nostrils with the help of special applicators called Tipi and Kuripi. There are different kinds of Rapé, types of tipi and methods of blowing in, which every time makes the healing experience different from the previous one. Rapé most often includes tobacco, the ash of certain Amazon plants and crushed grains. Tobacco is a sacred plant, which proper use purifies the neural system, both the connection between the synapses in the brain, and the connection between our body and the environment, nature, people.
Modern technologies in cities emit strong electromagnetic vibrations, which muffle the sensitivity of the neural system just as loud music worsens hearing and creates ringing in the ears. The habit of smoking is not harmful, if you use organic tobacco, not industrial one. The use of Rapé is even safer, because it doesn’t enter the lungs, but is absorbed through the mucous system, cleaning it afterwards. Rapé purifies human mental field, which is overloaded with information.
Rapé is made by Amazon tribes, each tribe has its own recipe, plants, preparation ritual. We have in stock Rapé from different tribes.
An Indian from Yavanava said: "Rapé can be really good, but the strength is in who and how blows it in."
Yawanawa tribe is dominated by a female shamaness. Rapé in this tribe is strong enough and normally it is prepared from only two plants: dust of dried on a full moon tobacco and the smallest ash of Tsunu tree bark (ashes of Palperero Pereira tree). Tobacco clears the mind of thoughts, restores the connections between the synapses in the brain, cleans the neural system, revealing susceptibility to the external environment. Tobacco pierces the body like electricity, cleaning, grounding, activating the whole system from head to foot. Ash of Tsunu tree opens and cleanses the nasopharynx, so Rapé is used for sinusitis, renite, pharyngitis, it is good to apply in case of flu to clear the mucous membrane, so that the microbes from the nasopharynx wouldn’t get to the stomach, but come out.
There is also Yawanawa Mulateiro kind of Rapé, a plant that gives more bodily sensations and relaxation.
Yawanawa Especial is a special variety with additional plants for deeper experience, very strong, terrestrial, after its application one can feel the lightness, expansion, deep relaxation, release from blocks in the body. Recommended for meditation and in-depth study.
Additional plants: Parika, Tsunu.
In Huni Kuin tribe (translated "Real People"), also known as Kashinawa, together with tobacco use many different plants. They often apply ground seeds of Angiku and the ashes of Ispansao, which openы the third eye. From the most numerous tribe of Huni Kuin, different varieties come to us, containing such plants as Murici (Byrsonima crassifólia), Mulateiro (Calycophyllum Spruceanum), Cumaru (Dipteryx odorata).
Murici: Helps cleanse the energy that is accumulated in the lower abdomen.
Cumaru: helps cure headaches and strengthens the nervous system.
Shaman Iba and his father from Huni Kuin tribe produce Rapé featured with sonority, it contains powdered grass and flowers.
Nukini tribe is a small community of several villages. This tribe is well known for its respect for a woman in their shamanism history. They use Rapé as well as most other tribes: for clarity, healing, stress, in ceremonies and bathing in the river for purification. Rapé of this tribe is wonderful. People appreciate it for its freshness, purity and good composition. They say that in their Rapé tradition they use two unique plants, which they consider to be their special feature. Shuané and Haianí, both plants haven’t been botanically identified yet. Tobacco and Ash (usually Tsunu) are mixed with these two plants to make medicine authentic.
Nukini Especial has a flower-mint flavor and has a clear, sharp effect with high vibration. Effective in purifying the mind and able to shift consciousness into a clearer, more inspired state.
Rapé of Kuntanawa tribe has a unique vibration. It has a strong spiritual content that directs attention inward and calms, so healing and understanding can be awakened by the Spirit of this medicine.
Sometimes they add plants with cosmological properties that bring luck, tranquility, and also to protect people and bless warriors. They say that it helps them to be in power, clarity, and also maintains the right attitude and helps to make the right decisions. It is interesting to note that it seems more active in the heart than in the head. It is soft, it burns less in the nose and head, and many believe that it opens the heart. The normal variety contains tobacco and ash of Tsunu tree (Platycyamus regnellii), although some special recipes contain Samauma, Nissural, Jarina, Sanssara, Cipo Alho plants and others.
Plants used by Kuntanawa tribe in their Rapé (among others):
Jarina flower: they say that this beautiful plant makes them invisible to enemies, both spiritual and physical, and helps to keep enemies at bay.
Samsara: brings luck and cures Panema (a disease known to indigenous peoples, which manifests itself as failure, low energy, laziness, etc.).
Kavaranik: is able to heal physical and spiritual illness and brings good luck in love and attraction.
Samama: the largest tree in the Amazon, is considered to be sacred by all the tribes, also known as the mother tree. It strengthens the body, cures the headache and brings good dreams.
Cipo Alho: a liana, which smells like garlic, is used for spiritual and physical protection.
The Rapé of Shanenava tribe has a sweetish flavor, a lighter color and gives more state of inspiration and lightness, from it the effect of gravity in the body.
Rapé of the Shavandava tribe is a good basic variety, in most cases it is made from tobacco and Ash Tsun, is intended for healing.
Arara tribe, distinguished by strong traditions of the soldiers, makes their Rapé with a large concentration of tobacco, that's why their Rapé variety has a more bodily, terrestrial effect.
Rapé with the Sanu plant is distinguished by a sharp and strong effect even more than the normal variety of Arara.
Apurina is the rarest and most unique variety of Rapé, there is no tobacco in it, and its composition is the secret of the tribe. It is considered to be gold among all varieties of Rapé. Its effect is more harmonizing, while other varieties are meant for healing. Rapé of green color opens the heart, brightens the head and doesn't give such a strong grounding effect as one with tobacco, bthjerefore it's lighter. However, in large quantities, it can also cause a cleaning effect.
Each variety is presented in three sizes: small (10ml), medium (20ml) and large (40ml).
The indigenous people of Brazil say that Rapé can be used, in the following cases:
- headache (clears synapses of the brain);
- drowsiness, laziness, fatigue, apathy;
- after long journeys (for grounding);
- if obtaining a large amount of information (for purification of the neural system);
- under stress (clears from emotions and returns to now, to consciousness);
- for colds and viral diseases (clears the mucous membrane);
- in ceremonies;
Rapé is not used for pleasure or relief. Although the effect is strong, it is intended to activate, overcome laziness, and should be used with respect, ritually, with good intention. Rapé is not compatible with alcohol, but allies with other plants of power. The Indians say that when using rapé, it is best to concentrate and Listen, because during its action we connect with the ancestors and can receive answers to our questions from the higher Self.
Rapé, who are you?
I am nobody.
I am the Spirit from antiquity.
I am a reminder of reality, a medicine for healing from thoughts and illusions, which brings you back to the only present moment now, into the body, opening the perception and healing the body, emotions, thoughts, soul and Spirit.
Methods for blowing Rapé in and their Power
Rapé ritual is always performed with the help of tube applicators Tipi and Kuripi.
Curipi is an autoapplicator, thanks to which Rapé can be blown to yourself by placing one end of the tube in the nostril, making an exhalation to the other end of the tube.
Tipi is a paired applicator, is used in the ritual where power and knowledge are transferred. This is radically different from self-application and very much depends on the person who blows, the purity of his consciousness, thoughts, personal strength.
First of all, to blow in Rapé you need the inner mood (state of prayer, meditation), concentration and intention. Not always a person is energetically inclined to use snuff, and even more to blow in another person. "Rapé can be very good, but its strength is always how and who blows it in." (yawanawa indian)
Rapé is a sacred medicine and already carries the intention and prayer of the one who prepared it, including the strength of the tribe, the Spirits of plants and the terrain where it is produced.
The whole process of the shamanic ceremony, the lighting of the tube, the play on musical instruments - these actions are accompanied by a deep connection with the sacred Spirit of Rapé. When someone blows Rapé, he tunes in and transfers all the energy directly to the auric field of the person who takes it.
This is very different from using Curipi (a personal applicator), which is much softer than blowing tobacco through the Tipi (large applicator) directly into the nostrils of another person.
Among the main types of blowing there are, for example:
Breath of the Anaconda (Zhiboy): one of the most common and used methods, has a strong purifying effect and transmits the strength of the forest. It starts gently and intensifies at the end of the exhalation, blocking the air channel with the tongue, with a wheezing sound at the output.
Breathing of the Jaguar: Strong, direct and short exhalations that produce low sound by touching the tipi. It awakens the Generic force and promotes concentration during the ceremony.
Turtle's breath: a long, slow exhalation from start to finish, Rapé is blown slowly and gradually. This method prolongs the effect, develops patience and helps to work with physical trauma.
Breathing of the Sleep: the back breath of the Anaconda begins with a strong exhalation, passing into a slow exhalation. Promotes deep sleep and enhances vision.
We remind you that snuff Rapé is a serious medicine and is used with proper preparation for this ritual. Thus, the sacred medicine will act much more effectively, connecting the body, mind and spirit!

Oils, fragrances and plants that awaken the inner fire. The word ‘aphrodisiacs’ is used for foods or substances, special plants that kindle a fire and stimulate sexual arousal and sexual activity in the body of men and women. Even some sounds can awaken our sexual desire!
It is wrong to believe that the aphrodisiac has a pronounced stimulating effect that can’t be controlled and that can completely misbalance a person. After all, a person is a complex plexus of the body features, temperament, thinking, will and other characteristics that somehow control all processes in the body, including sexual arousal. So it would be more accurate to say that aphrodisiacs can only increase excitement and attraction, but not create it from nothing.
Aphrodisiac oils, both massage and ether, have been known for a long time. For example, in ancient India, sandalwood oil and sage oil were used for centuries as aphrodisiacs, and in ancient Greece olive oil was used for the same purpose. Aphrodisiacs oils excellently relax the body, relieve the signs of stress and nervous tension, relieve fatigue and anxiety. Aromatherapy can be done during body massage, if you mix essential oils with a massage remedy or add a few drops of oil in the bath, or make special inhalations. After all, the connection between sexual arousal and smell is well-known.
Essential aphrodisiac oils have the following properties:
Ylang-ylang: a strong stimulating property, increases sexual attraction in women and men;
Sandalwood: aphrodisiac oil for men, increases potency;
Ginger: a warming and stimulating effect for both men and women;
Clary: increases the attraction of the opposite sexes;
Orange: calms the nervous system and relieves fatigue, improves mood, has a relaxing effect;
Bergamot: awakens fantasy, helps to relax;
Geranium: awakens the need for tenderness and romance;
Vanilla: wakes up sensuality, relaxes;
Carnation: increases the duration of orgasm, increases sensitivity;
Jasmine: gives a sense of attractiveness, liberates;
Cinnamon: energizes, increases sensitivity;
Lavender: good for relaxation;
Mirrh: aphrodisiac for women, enhances femininity, brings harmony;
Patchouli: increases the sensitivity of erogenous zones, liberates, eliminates coldness;
Rose: reveals female sexuality, creates an atmosphere of tenderness;
Rosemary: tones, prolongs sexual arousal in men.
Food can also be aphrodisiac if it contains substances that lead to increased sexual arousal in men and women. For example, so popular strawberry increases sexual activity in women and men, as it contains zinc, which increases the level of testosterone - the hormone responsible for sexual arousal. It is believed that 200 g of strawberries daily is enough to increase sexual activity. Vitamin E is recognized as a sexual vitamin. It stimulates the pituitary gland, which is responsible for the functioning of the genital organs. Vitamin E can be found in such products as olive oil in large amounts, so this is another generally recognized aphrodisiac. If a man adds 3 tablespoons of olive oil a day in his dishes, this will have a beneficial effect on his potency. Also, there is plenty of vitamin E in almonds. Especially strong is the effect of this aphrodisiac nut smell on women. The next substance that is contained in aphrodisiac products is phytosterols. Avocados are rich with them, so it awakens sexual desire in both partners, increases sexual activity. You can add half of the avocado per day in a salad with shrimps, which are also considered to be exciting products. Paradoxically, but garlic with strong unpleasant odor is a strong aphrodisiac product, since it contains an allicin - excitatory substance. A more pleasant taste and smell belong to another aphrodisiac – chocolate, after eating it you can go on a date not only with a good mood, but also with a sexual desire. This refers to bitter dark chocolate. Ginger is an exciting product due to lysine presence, essential oils and vitamin C. This set of substances increases sexual desire and improves the tone of intimate muscles. Tea with ginger, honey and mint has an excellent stimulating effect. Spices such as dill, black pepper, cinnamon, cumin, celery, basil, cardamom, horseradish, anise are also strong aphrodisiac products. Therefore, anise alcoholic drinks have an exciting effect - as, indeed, some other alcohol, for example, wine.
Aphrodisiac Plants (teas):
Yohimbe is a unique aphrodisiac, a plant-based sexuality stimulant that is derived from the bark of the tropical tree Yohimbe, which grows in West Africa. African tribes since ancient times have used the bark of this tree in various forms: smoked, rubbed into the body, added to food, sniffed. The main component in the bark is alkaloid yohimbine. The effect of this alkaloid on the human body is multifaceted. Yohimbine activates the flow of blood to the peripheral vessels, causing an erection, helps to control ejaculation and promotes the prolongation of sexual intercourse for men. Yohimbine also increases sexual desire, stimulating the production of testosterone, and is a harmless mean of stimulating sexual activity in both men and women. Yohimbe stimulates potency, enriches sexual sensations, strengthens orgasm, helps control ejaculation and significantly prolongs intercourse, has a tonic effect on the central nervous system, stimulates the lumbar spinal cord centers that control the erection; Increases energy and endurance, improves general condition.
Catueba (Erythroxylum catuaba) or MAIRA-PUAMA (the Brazilian name) is a South American fast-growing tree from the Erythroxylaceae family, found only in Brazil, its second name is the Brazilian juniper. The bark of Catuaba tree is used for preparation of the eponymous drink, possessing set of useful properties. They use only the outer bark of the tree, which with careful and correct treatment, is quickly restored. For many centuries, the Indians worshipped Catuaba and applied it, first of all, as a powerful aphrodisiac. Modern scientists in Brazil, the United States and Europe are interested in this plant and conducted a number of studies. Scientific study confirmed that Catuaba is a strong aphrodisiac, which increases the libido, improves potency and is an excellent tonic for sexual dysfunction.
The Indian people of Wajapi have a saying: "As long as father does not turn 60 years old - children are born from him, and after - all the children are from Catuaba." It is important to note that during all studies, no side effects were identified, even with a fairly long usw of the drink. The most expressive and vivid results of the drink effect were manifested in men.
Catuaba contains a large amount of mineral substances, such as magnesium, potassium and calcium, and metals. In Brazil, Catuaba is also used in medicine to increase the tone of the central nervous system. It is drunk in case of nervousness and neuritis, with weakness and fatigue, with chronic fatigue and exhaustion of the body, and just to improve mood.
Katueba saturates the cells of the brain with oxygen, so it is useful to use it for forgetfulness, to improve memory. People who lead an active lifestyle often experience insomnia, excessive excitability, stressful conditions associated with overexertion, headaches – Catuaba can help to cope with such problems. It is added to various biologically active supplements from depressions, fatigue and CNS disorders, and they also create separate dietary supplements based on Catuaba. Conducted clinical studies prove that this South American tree has also antibacterial, antiviral and analgesic properties.
Catuaba is an exceptional drink, a drink of love, capable of giving you a sense of happiness, carefree, it will fill you with energy, positive emotions, "take you to the clear sky and lift up to the bright Sun".

Many of us don’t suspect the presence of parasites in the body and unconsciously give preference to some products that are actually necessary not for our body, but for parasites that eat light carbohydrates, sweet, dairy products, cheeses, who develop in easily degradable foods, such as bread .
In addition to influencing our diet, they affect our health and mood, exposing emotions every time they lack food, and tempting to eat some snack.
If you decipher the word Microbe, Micro Robot, and look at our co-dependence with the lunar cycles, you can understand that they eat white food and also live on cycles.

Taking the medication should be started on the waning moon, on an empty stomach, by drinking 1 tablespoon of delicious syrup during a week. After a break of one week, the course is drunk for 7 more days to remove the remaining larvae born after the new moon.
This procedure can be repeated 2 timetwice a year.
The composition includes: sugar cane syrup (delicious and sweet, for parasites to eat strong acting and organic remedies), papaya leaves, orange peel, mint, pumpkin seeds, essential oils of the above-listed antiparasitic agents. Because of essential oils, its taste is very fresh and saturated, and the action is strong and natural due to the high concentration of active ingredients.

The root of the plant Silene Capensis is traditionally used to produce bright (and, according to the Xhosa people, prophetic) conscious dreaming during the process of shamans initiating.
In the Xhosa tribe, this plant is called "undlela zimhlope", which can be translated as "white ways" and they highly appreciate such psychoactive plants for their ability to evoke unusually bright dreams. This ability has been confirmed by many European and American researchers who have studied traditional African healing. Xhosa uses its roots to invoke prophetic dreams and communicate with the spirits of ancestors, for they piously believe that ancestors communicate with their descendants in dreams. It hasn’t been scientifically proven, but there is an opinion that Silene Capensis is more effective than Kalei Zakatechichi.
When used, there is no change in behavior and condition, even when it’s taken during the day, which is preferable, because Alkaloids start to act 6-8 hours after application.
The root can be simply chewed or cooked.
Traditional preparation of the sacred "drink":

The ancient forests of South America keep many natural secrets and wonders. The wild nature of the Amazon today reveals for us the secrets of gaining vitality, health, beauty and longevity through the traditions of indigenous Indian tribes living in harmony with themselves and the world around them. Here we share with you a collection of the most effective healing oils, that for thousands of years have been extracted from relict plants of Brazilian savannah and tropics.
Andiroba (Carapa guianensis)
Andiroba tree grows in the torrential forests of Brazil. It reaches up to 40 m in height and is a relative of mahogany. Indigenous peoples in the Amazon have used Andirobe for centuries, using almost all parts of the tree, and also produce healing oil of the seeds. Originally, oil was used as a repellent for mosquitoes, flies and other pests.
One tree gives about 200 kg of nuts per year. To produce 1 liter of oil about 6 kg of nuts are needed, with the traditional method of extraction. The traditional method is effective, although a bit primitive. Seeds fallen into the water from the coastal trees are gathered from the surface of the river, after that they’re boiled in a large pot of water. The broth is then filtered to extract the oil.
Andiroba oil contains a lot of fatty acids, and is also saturated with vitamin F.
Due to this composition it is an excellent stimulator of blood circulation in skin, and the presence of limonoids helps to remove swelling, irritation, accelerates the healing of wounds and ulcers, resorption of hematomas, has anti-inflammatory effect and relieves pain. Compresses with Andiroba oil are used tp treat arthritis, muscle and joint pain.
Residents of indigenous tribes also used a few drops of oil mixed with milk in their ears to treat ear infections. Also, Andiroba's oil is used for sinusitis, one drop in each nostril, in the morning with an empty stomach. And to protect pets from ear mites, it is enough to drip a few drops into the affected ear twice a day for a week.
Linolenic acid, contained in products of Andiroba, regulates the life cycle of cells and stops their hyper-growth in such disease as psoriasis and age-related pigmentation.
Today Andiroba oil is widely used as a base for preparation of medicinal cosmetics. It moisturizes well, restores skin, gets rid of wrinkles. It’s also great for massage.
Copaiba (Copaifera officinalis)
Copaiba trees have a branched, lush crown and grow to a height of 15-30 m. They are valued for their resinous-oily juice - oleoresin, which has a wide range of healing properties. They get valuable gum just in the same way as birch sap, by making a hole in the trees trunk. This method allows you to save the tree without harming it. From one tree it is possible to get approximately 40 liters of resin in a year. When gathered, the resin is colorless, but contacting oxygen it oxidizes and darkens.
The indigenous tribes of the Amazon use Copaiba resin to stop bleeding, healing ulcers, treating psoriasis and gonorrhea. Brazilian traditions of medicinal plants describe the oil of Copaiba as a powerful antiseptic and a natural antibiotic. It is used as a wound-healing and antifungal agent. By taking the oil in as an expectorant, they treat bronchitis and sinusitis, use for inflammation of the kidneys, bladder and cystitis. Peruvian traditional medicine mixes three or four drops of oil with a spoonful of honey and is taken as a natural remedy for sore throats and colds.
The same anti-inflammatory agent is used for all types of skin problems.

It is also believed that sucupira oil is able to strengthen bones even in elderly people, which is an excellent way to prevent bone diseases such as osteoporosis.
The daily use of a few drops of oil diluted in water, or tea from the seeds of Sukupira helps to cope with a variety of diseases. Anti-inflammatory, analgesic and antibiotic properties of the plant are manifested in the treatment of dermatosis, tonsillitis, ulcers, gastric diseases, internal bleeding, inflammatory diseases of the uterus and ovaries, thrush, prostatitis, syphilis and gonorrhea, gout and diabetes.

Buriti is the dignity of Brazil. Palm moisture-loving trees grow almost in all states of the country. They reach 30 m height and about 50 cm in diameter. They love water and choose flooded areas, sources of rivers, ponds and lakes, strengthening the banks with their root system and allowing reservoirs to avoid drying out and preserving the surrounding ecosystem.
These palms grow very slowly - about 1 m in 50 years, and begin giving the fruits only reaching 10 m height. Therefore, until the appearance of the first fruits, about 500 years pass. The palm tree blossoms almost all year round, especially in the autumn-winter Brazilian period, from April to August. But before the fruit ripens, a year passes.
Gathering heavy bunches of berries in scaly skin is a special skill that requires strength and courage. But the value of Buriti justifies all the risks.
This berry is one of the main natural sources of provitamin A, vitamins B and C, calcium, iron, phosphorus, protein, zinc and tonin.
Studies have shown that the activity of retinol contained in the fruits is more than 3,500 equivalents, which is 5-8 times more than in carrots which is rich with this vitamin. The content of cellulose in buriti is from 115 to 145 kcal, of crude protein - from 2.1 to 3%; lipids - from 8 to 14%; sugar - 4,4%; starch 4.5%; fibers - from 5,2 to 5,9%; and the acidity of the fruit is 1%.
An incredible amount of sweets are made of buriti fruits in Brazil: sweets, ice cream, marmalades, juices and smoothies. In any form, this fruit has an exotic taste and is rightly considered a superfood.
It is loved not only by people, but also by birds. Especially monogamous parrots Arara. It was noted that araras’ life living in the city in average is 40 years, and their relatives living on the shores of the Amazon, and eating the fruits of Buriti, live in harmony with each other till 120 years.
Buriti oil is particularly popular in medicine and cosmetics. It is rich with carotene, so it perfectly protects skin and hair from sunlight and drying out in a hot Brazilian climate. It also has healing, anti-inflammatory and softening effects. Today, this oil is widely used in many body creams, shampoos, soaps and perfumes.
