This is ENERGY, a big ceremonial Tepi rapeh applicator to administer shamanic rapé snuff tobacco during rituals like Ayahuasca and Kambo and rapé ceremonies.
I made it to produce an energy balance between the shaman and the receiver. The middle area is made with leather to produce a soft touch during the ceremony.
All the material I use, from wood to bamboo, is found in nature, here in Goa. I purified this rapeh applicator with Palo Santo holy wood smoke. Stone and shell come from Jaipur, India.
Also known as Hape, Rapeh, Rapé is a legal sacred shamanic medicine. The shamans from South America have been using it for centuries as medicine. Its main ingredient is a special kind of tobacco. The indigenous people who make rapé mix this tobacco with various medicinal plants, such as mint, clover, tonka beans, banana peels, and cinnamon.

HOW TO USE THIS TEPI
I make my rapé pipes in a small laboratory in Goa, India, where I live most of the year. I sell on the beach during the season, and I now sell it here too, to reach conscious people worldwide. I purified them with Palo Santo holy wood smoke.
