What is Rapé?

Origin

Rapé is an incense mixture traditionally used by the indigenous communities of South America. It consists of a mixture of mapacho and various medicinal plants and herbs, which are processed into a fine powder. The exact origin of rapé is not known, as it has been used by indigenous communities for centuries. However, the Nukini, Yawanawa and Kuntanawa communities play an important role in the history and use of rapé.

The Nukini community lives in the Brazilian state of Acre and is known for its use of rapé in ritual ceremonies. They use special rapé varieties consisting of a mixture of mapacho and other healing plants to achieve specific spiritual goals. For example, they use a special type of rapé to deepen their contact with the spiritual beings of nature.

The Yawanawa community also lives in Brazil and in the state of Acre. They are known for their profound spiritual practices and use rapé as part of their ceremonies. They believe that rapé can create a connection between the physical and spiritual worlds and use it to promote healing and enlightenment.

The Kuntanawa community lives in the Brazilian state of Amazonas and is known for its use of rapé as a remedy. They use a special variety of rapé that consists of a mixture of mapacho and other medicinal plants such as muira puama and parika. They believe that this mixture has a powerful effect on the body and can help to alleviate various ailments such as headaches and colds.

Manufacture

What is Rapé production

How is rapé made?

Production begins with the selection of the plants. These are picked and dried by hand. They are then ground into small portions and stored in a clay bowl. This is Mapacho. The other ingredients vary depending on the region and manufacturer. However, plants such as yopo, nixpu, guarana or various herbs are often added.

The plant mixture is then ground to a fine powder on a flat surface made of wood or stone using a mortar or other grinder. The mixture is then sieved through a sieve to remove all lumps and coarse particles.

The final stage of production is mixing with ash. The ash is obtained from the bark of certain trees (Pau Pereira tree, “Platycyamus regnelli”) that grow in the region. The ash is first incinerated to remove all organic materials and then shredded. The ash is then mixed with the mapacho and the rapé is produced.

Mixing ash and plant powder requires skill and experience, as the ratio of the two ingredients is decisive for the effect and quality of the Rapé recipe.

It is important to emphasize that the preparation is a sacred ritual and requires a close relationship with the plants and the spiritual forces contained in the mixture. In some cultures, it is customary for the maker of the rapé to go into deep spiritual meditation before making the product in order to receive the right energy and alignment.
