Hapé is a very sacred master plant teacher, made and used by the indigenous tribes of the Amazon for thousands of years.

It is known by many names. Called Hapé (pronounced ha-PAY) in Brazil and Rapé (pronounced ra-PAY) in the majority of South America. It is often called Hapeh or Rapeh also.
Rapé is considered to be a sacred, shamanic medicine. It’s traditionally prepared by a knowledgeable shaman.
It is used for deep connection to the spirits, animals and Mother Nature, it is very cleansing and powerfully healing for the body, mind, and soul. Our hapé is made with plants that are organic and wild harvested, Not grown for commercialization or genetically hybridized, thus it has none of the negative properties that commercial products with the same ingredients have. Instead, it is grown and made in deep respect for the Mother Earth. It is a very powerful plant that has been used in one form or another by almost all native cultures of the Americas, due to its great power to heal body, mind and spirit. In this way it is a plant that is very revered by Shamans, healers and curanderos of indigenous cultures. It is said to be a Grandfather spirit, full of ancient wisdom and the ability to carry our prayers to Creator.
This sacred medicine takes days to make and is a very labor intensive process made in a ceremonial way, out of various Amazonian plants, leaves, barks, and seeds from native lands. Hapé is 100% legal in the USA and world wide. 100% safe and Non Psycho active. Each blend is made only with the listed ingredients, nothing else.

How To Use Hapé
According to the Indegenous traditions, This is how to use Hapé:
Hapé is used with a special blow pipe called a Kuripe (for self administering) or a Tepi (when giving to, or receiving from another). It is blown into the nose one side at a time with a single nostril pipe, or both sides simultaneously with a double nostril pipe.

Typically when starting to work with Hapé/ Rapé, you start by pouring or scooping a pea sized amount into your palm. Flatten it out in your palm and scoop half of the powder into the nose end of your pipe. Set your intention or make your prayer, then insert the nose end of the pipe into your nostril and blow to project the powder into the upper sinus where it will be rapidly absorbed. After blowing, immediately Breathe out through the mouth and continue to breathe through the mouth.
Load the other half of the Rapé into the pipe and blow into the other nostril.
You may experience some mild sting in the nose for a moment after application. this can feel stong in your first couple of times with Hapé, but you will quickly grow accustomed.
The plant compounds of the Hapé will absorb through the mucous membrane and quickly take effect. You may experience a variety of sensations and effects depending on the herbs in the specific blend. Common experience includes tingling, body vibrations, elevation of physical energy or alertness, relaxation, clearing of energies, emotional processing, insights, clarity, quieting of the mind, connection to spirit guides, receiving answers, and so much more!
Allow your intuition to lead you as you build a relationship with this powerful plant teacher. Allow the hapé to guide and teach you how to work with it in your meditations and prayers.
Sit with any of our blends, and meditate or focus on your intention until you feel complete, then blow your nose.
Wait at least 5 minutes before blowing your nose so that all the plant compounds can absorb.
