This rapé is very feminine. It is nicely balanced and not too strong. It opens up a tangible connection with your higher-self and creates a deep calm inner space. This plant medicine is very powerful, profoundly healing, and cleansing on many levels. The use of rapé aims to connect one to the spirits of nature while invoking that power to bring about physical and spiritual healing. Rapé also opens the chakra system. The tribes believe it facilitates the opening and clearing of the chakras & facilitates a sense of grounding and connection to the earth. Some believe it supports the release of disease from the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual bodies. It helps to open the third eye chakra, decalcifies the pineal gland, & clears mental fog & confusion. It helps to release negative thought patterns and helps support our connection to our breathe and connection to spirit.
