Since we get our Hape directly from the tribes, it's fresh. The strength and potency of each batch will vary slightly depending on the harvest season, the specific medicinal herb combinations, and the tribal region. Each collection of Hape is limited and unique. If you like a particular Hape, consider purchasing more than one, as we can only ensure the deliverability of specific varieties.

Directions - To self-administer Hape, use a V-shaped self-applicator pipe known as a "Kuripe," which joins your mouth to your nostril. If you have another person, you can use a large blowpipe, called a "Tepi," to blow the Hape into another person's nostrils.
If you are new to using Hape, put a pencil eraser size of Hape into the palm of your hand. Split it in half, and blow it in each nostril. Typically, you will work up to a pencil eraser size in each nostril as your body adjusts to using the Hape. Afterward, allow yourself to sit for 10-20 minutes to quiet your mind and receive your intention.

What is Hapé?
Hapé is the preparation of powdered medicinal herbs administered through the nose as a snuff. Hapé quickly and intensely produces effects that make the user feel alert and elevated. Typically, mapacho (Aztec tobacco, which contains nine times the nicotine of common tobacco) is used as a base for Hapé, and other plant medicines are added for various effects.
This ancient practice of consuming powdered plant medicines through the nose dated back to the pre-Columbian days and was first observed among the indigenous tribes of Brazil. To these tribes, hapé is a sacred shamanic snuff medicine with extensive healing and other powers. Other uses include inducing visions, increasing energy, and heightening the senses with the aromatic fragrance of the plants used in the blend.
Several tribes traditionally use Hape, and they each produce their own specific Hapé blends. These tribes include but are not limited to the Katukina, Yawanawa, Kaxinawa, Nukini, Kuntanawa, Apurinã, Ashaninka, and Matses.
In 1577 doctor and botanist Francisco Hernández de Boncalo introduced herbal snuff in Europe, and the elites of that time often took snuff as a headache treatment. During the 18th century, inhaling snuff became fashionable among the European aristocracy.
Today, indigenous tribes in the Amazon basin continue to use hapé in all aspects of life, from formal rituals to social gatherings to simply tuning into nature and welcoming the healing power of sacred plant medicines.
The ritual use of hapé was introduced to the West by traveling shamans through ayahuasca ceremonies and visitors who have spent time in the jungle with indigenous communities. Ritual hapé use is making its way around the world.
