About Rapé

Rapé, pronounced hapay or rapay, is a medicinal snuff from the Amazon. It's used to connect tribes to the power of the god of creation and to the spirits of the forest.

Rapé is thought to be beneficial for many physical ailments - for relieving headaches, to cool down in heat, to relax the mind, sinus problems, lower blood pressure and to intensify concentration - rapé is also good for grounding and releasing energy blocks.

It's a mix of leaves, seeds, spices, bark, oils, herbs and flowers from sacred plants, roots and trees. The basis of rapé is ground tobacco leaf (mapacho), cooked over a fire in a ceremony with chanting and prayer.  

Using a bamboo pipe, rapé is blown up the nose. It's blown into each nostril while the client is holding their breath.  It’s important to blow into both nostrils to keep the balance of energy.


Strong, fast, short, long, slow or light blows can be used. The type of blow used, will determine how long you will be in the power of the medicine.
