Rapé - Apurina
The traditional usage of Rapé
Green tobacco grown on the banks of the Acre River in Brazil, when the Amazon River is in flood season. This tobacco is unique to this region and due to this factor it is a good tobacco. Apurina is a well-known rapa type ideal for a quiet experience. It helps to connect with Mother Earth, and gives a sense of focus in the here and now.
This is sacred medicine. Its healing benefits are many and varied: physical, emotional, mental. It is a powerful medicine because its spirit comes from the jungle and asks to be used with respect. Part of her shamanic use includes directing prayers to the universe while working with her.
The healing components of the Apurina tribe do not go through fire processes during its formation, therefore it is a living and fresh healing.
Known to have a positive effect on strengthening the spirit, mental purification, improving concentration, physical relaxation, reducing stress, reducing anxiety, relieving depression, treating sinusitis.
How To Use
The Rapé is blown into each nostril separately, balancing the two hemispheres of the brain, our feminine and masculine side, yin and yang.
There are two ways to administer rapé: the soplada (where another person blows the powder into your nose, made with a designed pipe called Tepi) or by self-administration with a crooked pipe made of wood called Kuripé. The big advantage of using a Kuripé is that you are in total control of the dosage and the power of the administration.
