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 ‘Bobinsana & Wyld Cacao’ blend of rapé, (pronounced har-pay) is a lovely gentle energiser, specifically mapacho free. The main herb it contains is chocolate tree, Theobroma cacao, which is a high quality cacao from 50 year old trees, grown on a family plantation in Ecuador. There is also Bobinsana, Calliandra angustifolia, a well known shrubby tree with pink explosive puffs as flowers. It is used as heart medicine. This combines so well with the energetics of cacao.
The Calliandra is from the riversides of the higher Amazon. This water loving plant is also known as chipero, koprupi, shawi, kuanti, yopoyo, balata, capabo among others. A root decoction is traditionally prepared as a stimulant, or the bark for medicine to the immune system, inflammatory pathways, bone and joint pains, arthritis, as a depurative (blood purifier) or tonic. Lastly the Guaba bark, Inga edulis, is filled with calcium to make a great source for rapé ash. A tree with sweet pods and druity seeds, loved by monkeys & tucans.
Sourced from the Ecuadorian Andes in the Chocó region, a biodiversity hotspot. Tha grandparent elders whom planted the cacao trees have give permission for the pods to be used as medicine with the intention of bringing joy.
