Rapé for Sale
What is Rapé Medicine?
Rapé, pronounced ‘ha-peh’ in English sometimes called ‘rapay’ by westerners, is a shamanic medicine made from a blend of pulverized plants, typically a strong tobacco as the main ingredient. It has been used for thousands of years by healers of the Amazon region. The tobacco used in rapé is typically 20x stronger than tobacco used for cigarettes.
Rapé, unlike modern tobacco, is not used by smoking. Rapé is applied through a device called a Karpipe(for self-administration) or Tepi (a 2 person pipe), and is blown through the nostrils of the user. There are pipes made for self-administration or longer pipes used to administer from one person to another. The intense blow of the tobacco into the nostrils immediately focuses the mind, like blowing all the cobwebs out of the brain. Rapé is also said to help release spiritual, emotional and physical disease or blockage. Rapé also acts as a detoxifying anent by cleaning out all excess mucus, bacteria and toxins. It is traditionally used for many purposes such as re-aligning energy meridians, intensifying connection to self and to the universe and to release negativity and sickness. Rapé for sale – SHOP NOW

Frist, set an intention for the experience and be sure you have no other substances in the body. Find a nice quite environment such as outdoors and get in a comfortable seated position. Have tissue and a bottle of water at hand. Using a karipe, apply a pea sized amount of rapé powder to the pipe. For self-administration, place one end in the nostril, and use the other end into the mouth. Use your breath to blow quickly in one fast exhalation into the pipe to expel the powder into the nostril. Quickly refill the pipe with another pea sized amount and repeat on the opposite nostril. Try do apply to both nostrils as quickly as possible. Using a Tepi, you can have someone else administer the medicine for you.
Immediately you feel a burning sensation. The eyes will begin to water, and you may feel the urge to sneeze. The mouth will likely water as well, and you will feel the medicine in the back of your throat. It is important NOT TO SWALLOW THE MEDICINE as this can make you nauseous and cause vomiting. Lean forward and allow all the mucus to flow naturally outward. Use rapé outdoors or with a bucket/cup nearby for spitting. Despite not swallowing the medicine you may still have the urge to vomit, this okay and just means your body is eliminating waste and detoxifying.
Typically the whole experience lasts about 10-20 minutes.
