Hapé, or rapé, is pronounced ‘haa-pay’ in English.  This plant medicine is a very sacred herbal snuff, made by the indigenous tribes of the Amazon, with Tobacco and varying Amazonian healing plants, leaves, trees, and seeds from native lands. Hapé is applied through the nostrils using an applicator (Kuripe or Tepi) in prayer, meditation, and ceremony. It is used for deep connection to the plants,  animal kingdoms and all of Mother Nature. This healing snuff has the ability to cleanse the mind, purify the thoughts, bring clarity, spiritual alignment, and clear negativity and heaviness from the body, mind, & soul. This plant medicine takes days to make and is a very labor intensive process made in a ceremonial way with chants, song, and prayer.

We are honored to be the leader in the ethical sourcing of Hapé.  Traditional peoples have used this medicine for millennia to connect more deeply to Nature. With great care, we are working directly with indigenous tribes to integrate this ancient plant wisdom into a modern spiritual practice.

Our goal is to educate you and provide the necessary resources from which to cultivate a sacred relationship with Hapé and with Tobacco. Tobacco is an extremely powerful plant and these artisanal jungle tobaccos do still have nicotine in them, which can become addictive. Hapé should always be worked with in a ceremonial setting, with prayer and intention. Hapé should never be used habitually, socially, or recreationally. Thank you for respecting the plants and this ancient tradition.

Working with this medicine is such an intuitive process, helping and supporting us to find empowerment through nature. Each Hapé carries its own unique properties, different healing herbs, and prayers. For those beginning their relationship with Hapé, a common question we are asked is, which Hapé is right for me? Below you’ll find a list and description of all of Four Visions Hapés, their descriptions, strengths, and ingredients which can help you decide which blend is right for you. As you begin studying and working with each of the different hapés, you will tune into your own understanding of each particular medicine and how they connect with you. It is a very beautiful process as the Hapé begins teaching us, guiding us, informing us, and becoming our ally.
