What are the benefits of (R)apé?

If you want to learn more about how tobacco can be used to combat mental and physical ailments, then read on to discover the ancient ways of (r)apé snuffing.

Start with (R)apé?

(R)apé is made by combining tobacco from the Nicotiana rustica plant with a secret combination of Amazonian foliage and then crushing it into a powder.

This shamanic snuff contains a strong strain of tobacco and other potent herbs to give it an intense smell and potency. Because of its intensity, it is believed to have many medical properties, mainly as a cleansing agent.

Benefits of Using (R)apé

Using (r)apé powder can have a number of benefits, for instance, it can:

  • Help with mental illness and even aid in addiction treatment.
  • Provide a sense of calm that when used on a regular basis can lead to an overall change in mood. It, therefore, helps relieve depression.
  • Restore the sinuses and respiratory system by removing blockages from the breathing pathway.
  • Clears your Chakara’s (energy points) by detoxing you both physically and spiritually.
  • Prepares you for intense experiences like plant ceremony’s by removing bad vibes to help you find your true intention.
  • Gives an overall sense of clarity to think and focus better.

Sacred Shaman History

To gain the full effects of (r)apé tobacco, you have to understand and appreciate its deep-rooted history as social medicine. Indigenous tribes of the Amazon including Peru and Brazil use herbs like tobacco and other native plants for more than pleasure. Each herb has a purpose and is used to elevate the spirit while cleansing the body.

If someone in the tribe is ill, it is the community’s responsibility to ensure their health is restored. Unlike, western society, individualism and personal property hold little value in a tribe. So, sharing sacred herbs and space is essential.

How Is (R)apé Administered?

(R)apé is one of the tribal cornerstones of communal health. It must be prepared by a shaman or elder, then administered using a two-way pipe (Tepi). The shaman blows the powder up each nostril one at a time. It can also be self-administered using a triangle-shaped pipe (Kuripe) that fits in your mouth and nose at the same time. But, only experienced users should attempt to do this on their own.

Either way, shaman tobacco should only be used in a respectful manner. It should not be abused or used as an addictive substance. The space should be sacred, quiet and calm. An outdoor setting is best to connect with nature.

What Are the Side Effects?

Something as powerful and sacred as (r)apé includes some immediate side effects and long-term consequences.

The rapé side effects that you will notice right away include automatic body cleansing outcomes like vomiting, diarrhea, and hot sweats. These conditions are part of the normal process to remove toxins from the body.

It is best to be aware of these effects before beginning the treatment. You can be near a bathroom, keep water by your side, and get help from a guide or friend if you feel nauseous.

After the cleansing of rapé is complete, you will feel rejuvenated. The long-term impact can vary from person to person and depends on how often you perform the procedure.

Many people feel more aligned and in tune with their inner voice yet gain an appreciation for the life surrounding them.

How to Safely and Properly Use and Store (R)apé?

If you become a regular (r)apé user, then you will want to prepare your own kit and snuffing device.

Treat your rapé as a sacred medicine by storing it in a cool place using an organic container, including ritualistic items like feathers and ornaments during your practice, and cleaning your snuff pipe regularly.

Regular users must also be cautious as with any substance. It should only be used when necessary as a medicine and not as a recreational drug. Remember that nicotine is the primary ingredient, which can be highly addictive.

What others experience?

“Joyce without a doubt, definitely the Queen of the (R)apé. The first time i received (R)apé from this magical human being it really healed me and changed my life. She and her (R)apé helpt me to get rid of an spiritual blockage in the form of a parasite. I’m glad i’ve met her cause every time when she gave me (R)apé she gave me exactly what i needed! You can see that she is super dedicated and knows exactly what she is doing. If you ever get the change to meet her! Don’t let her go. 🙏🏾” – Dizzy

“Joyce is for me the best person to go to for (r)ape. Off course the medicine is beautiful on it self, but she really puts an extra dimension to it. She doesn’t only give you what you ask for, but also what you need. And she does it so pure, respectful, loving and without judgement. She really sees you and wants you to be the best version of you. For me, trust is a big deal. I don’t show myself to a lot of people, but to Joyce I do. She’s also a fantastic space holder and makes sure everything is safe and in place to heal and grow. I also recommend going with your partner or relative. Because she makes sure that you connect with your higher self, but also with the other. From the heart. Your relation with yourself as well as the other is better in tune. Bjorn for me, is a real gate keeper such a strong pow. ower. A beautiful force to complement the divine en feminine Joyce.” – Joy
