Rapé is a legal shamanic snuff medicine, which is pronounced ‘ha-peh’ in English. Also, it’s known to be casually referred to as ‘hape’ or ‘rapay”. Rapé is a very rare, sacred, powerful, profoundly healing and cleansing medicine. It's made in a very labour intensive process, and consist of various Amazonian medicinal plants: tobacco, ash from trees, leaves, seeds, and other ingredients, depending on the specific type. Some types of rapé are made by various indigenous tribes, who originate from different South American countries – primarily Brazil.
Traditionally, it is applied by using a pipe made from bamboo or bone, which is blown through each nostril. It can be self-administered using a V-shaped self-applicator pipe, which connects the mouth to the nostrils. Alternatively, the can be administered by another person using a blow pipe, which connects the blower’s mouth to the other person’s nostrils. The self-applicator pipe is known as ‘Kuripe’, and the blow pipe is know as a ‘Tepi’ in the Brazilian tradition.
General suggestion is to use a pea sized amount (50% for each nostril) of medicine for beginners, and dosage can be increased after prolonged use of a specific rapé. Also, it’s suggested that you use them within a quiet space without any interruptions – sitting upright, either cross-legged or in a chair with eyes closed after application. Also, it's suggested, slow breathing after application through the mouth is very important.
