Rapé - Gesileo
The traditional usage of Rapé
The Jesilao is named after the famous shaman who prepares it exclusively, in his home in the heart of the Brazilian Amazon.
To us as Westerners, the ingredients of this rapa are unknown, which are kept as a secret, which many who know the territory where Jesilao lives, try to crack.
What is known is the fact that it is a very strong healing agent, with a "crystalline" quality that affects a unique clarity after use. It is said that Jesilao holds a ritual while preparing it, in which he releases a boa snake in the space of the room, in order to introduce this energy into his unique mixture.
Mainly affects the head chakras, a powerful expectorant, with a high-quality and particularly loved aroma. This rapha is perfect for ceremonial as well as everyday use (in measured amounts, due to its potency). Its popularity together with its exclusivity - causes its rarity and hence also its relatively high price.
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.
