Rapéh - The definitive, illustrated step-by-step guide

Updated: Jan 18, 2021

As the Coronavirus lockdown of 2020 began to relax we noticed a huge interest in our Rapéh products. We started a promotion to help our Planet Kambo family through offering free samples of Rapéh and a Tomahawk Self Applicator Pipe to those that wanted. Although simple to use, if you'd never experienced Rapéh before, it can be very powerful and is certainly not to be sniffed at (pun intended) so knowing how to use it properly is essential to get the most out of it and to really connect with the spirit of the tobacco.

In this article I'll give you the Lockdown Lowdown on Rapéh, how to use it and I'll answer some commonly asked questions.

For the basics on Rapéh and it's application you can refer to this previous article on the Planet Kambo blog.

How to self apply Rapeh using a Tomahawk Pipe

1.Pre fold a napkin or tissue paper (you will likely need to blow your nose at the end of the process). Rapéh is great for clearing out the nose and sinuses as it will cleanse and liquify any mucous. There can be a little drip, both from your nose and at the back of the throat. Having a napkin handy means you can be ready to deal with any issues without disturbing your Rapéh process.

2. Pour a small amount of Rapéh into either an open palm or folded piece of card. From here you will need to place the Rapéh into the pipe so experiment with these methods and find which one you prefer.

3. Take your Tomahawk pipe & hold between your thumb and first finger.

4. Use the longer end of the Tomahawk to scoop the Rapéh gently into the pipe. You can scoop from your palm or pour the Rapéh into the pipe from the folded card.
