Hapéh made by the Huni Kuin (True People) of the Brazilian Amazon. Contains ash from various parts of the Jurubeba plant.
Veia de Paje (The Vein of the Shaman) is a gentle blend made by our friends of Huni Kuin (True People) tribe. The main ingredient of this blend is a plant known as Jurubeba or as it's known in the Amazon as the Heart of the Boa Constrictor. Jurubeba is a well known medicinal plant throughout Brazil and is often mixed in infusions to stimulate and aid digestion. When used in Hapé (Hapéh) the Huni Kuin believe this plant offers the benefits of improved circulation, balanced heart rate, the invitation of good energies, as well as protection from negative energies. This blend is very gentle and subtle, great for beginners.
This Hapéh was made by Nawa Huni Kuin of the Txana Huya Huni Kuin community. Nawa comes from a community located relatively close to the Amazonian urban center of Tarauaca, and like many other communities, his is one of the ones that does not receive much support from NGO’s or the Brazilian government. Many of the Amazonian traditions are oral in nature, and due to the global situation, tribal elders, who are the libraries of their traditional knowledge, are at high risk. Currently, Nawa’s community is working to raise funds in order to limit trips into urban areas to buy essential supplies. We are honored here at The Rainbow Bridge to support these communities by supporting indigenous artisans so that they may be able to financially safeguard themselves from the current global situation.
