An aromatic blend of various plant ashes used historically in South America by shamans and healers for cleansing, healing, and grounding as well as an adjunct in shamanic rituals. The plant matter used is rendered into a fine and pure ash where other medicines are then added into it.
The 'Amazon force' blend of rapé, (pronounced har-pay) is a smooth and potentially calming blend. Cecropia membranasea, commonly referred to as Cetico in Brazil, makes up the base for this formulation. The plant matter used is rendered into a fine and pure white ash where other medicines are then added into it. The Cetico itself is thought to contain a profile of chemical constituents including flavonoids, steroids and terpenes. Research is showing that this plant may be an effective hypoglycemic, analgesic, antiulcer, along with antimalarial, and it may also possess wound healing abilities. The Sharamasha plant is a related species of piri piri (Justicia pectorallis), also known as mashi-hiri and considered an entheogen. It can help to boost the clarity of all senses and supports the search of mental and physical clarity. It has been prepared by an elder woman of the tribe who sings to and thanks the plants as she harvests them, a ritual learnt from her grandmother which she believes empowers the medicine.
Sourced from the Nukini tribe in the central Amazon region of North-Western Brazil, in the state of Acre. Medicine from the Nukini tribe is usually created by the women of the tribe, who have an intricate and private knowledge of plant world which they keep alive intergenerationally.
