The Treasures

Tobacco may be a widely abused substance in our modern world, but for many indigenous tribes of the Americas, tobacco is a sacred plant known to cleanse both individuals and ceremonial spaces. That’s the case for Rapé (pronounced “ha-peh”), a powerful, cleansing snuff used by shamans in Brazil and Peru as part of important sacred medicinal rituals.

We bring the finest and freshest Rapé directly from the indigenous tribes. We carry the following Rapé: Yawanawa, Huni Kuin, Matsini, Rumé Corda, Rumé Sabia, Gesileu Traditional, Gesileu Special, Tsunu, Apurina 1+2, Kuntanawa, Shawadawa, Murici Classic, Nuiki Traditional, Mawa Yawa fin quality.

These bracelets are artistic representations of the tribes from Brazil, Mexico and Colombia. They have a powerful symbolism of the spirituality and traditions. They provide protection and empowerment. The patterns are inspired by the wild nature and animals of those sacred lands.

 

These open bracelets are a great choice because they will fit on any hand. Buying one of these bracelets directly supports the families that create them. These people are the protectors of the forests, of Mother Nature!

Traditionally, Rapé is applied by using a pipe to blow through each nostril on both sides. 

 

It can be self-administered using a self-applicator pipe which connects the mouth to the nostrils.  It can also 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 a ‘kuripe’ and the blow pipe is known as a ‘tepi’.

We bring the freshest white Sage. It is used for spiritual cleansing and protection. In addition to its spiritual purification properties, it is also believed by many to assist in attracting both prosperity and wisdom.

 

Palo Santo is the wood from a mystical tree that grows on the coast of South America and has a literal translation in Spanish as "Holy Wood".

We also carry ceremonial smudge feathers for cleansing, dancing and storytelling.
