SACRED TOBACCO

WHAT IS HAPÉ / RAPÉ

The Rapé is a type of sacred snuff used by the indigenous peoples of the forest. It is said to heighten the awareness and the senses, clear and align your mind, your instinct and your intuition, and help promote cleansing of the body and soul.

ITS PURPOSE IS TO DRIVE AWAY DARK THOUGHTS AND BAD VIBRATIONS AND ALIGN YOU WITH YOUR BEST SELF.

Rapé is usually made from a variety of sacred tobacco leaves, powdered and mixed with different types of herbs and tree ash, then ground into a fine, aromatic powder that is blown into the nostrils.

Its use is ancient and has been prominent in many different cultures throughout time. We specifically celebrate the traditions of its use by indigenous tribes and the caboclos of the forest, who use it for various purposes, including medicinal and ceremonial.
