Service Description

Sananga is an eye drop made from the roots and bark of Tabernaemontana undulata, a shrub found in Brazil and other parts of South America. The plant matter is ground into a very fine powder and extracted into a liquid. The Kaxinawás, Matsés and Yawanawá tribes of the Amazon use this medicine to treat disorders of the eyes and spirit. They use it to treat and prevent glaucoma, cataract, far and nearsightedness, and blindness, as well as to sharpen their night vision for hunting. On a spiritual level they use it to increase insight and intuition, enhance visual perception, remove unwanted energy. These drops are administered following the administration of Rapeh, a snuff containing tobacco and other grounding herbs. The tobacco in Rapeh is Nicotiana Rustica, also known as mapacho, different from the Nicotiana Tabacum tobacco used in cigarettes. Other medicinal and sacred plants, including parts from tree bark, leaves, seeds, are combined with the tobacco and pulverized with a pestle, then strained through a mesh to create a fine powder. The powder is blown into each nostril using a traditional device known as a tepi, or for self administration, a kuripe. Different combinations of plants provide different uses and effects, and the exact recipe is unique to the indigenous tribe and healer. Rapeh is commonly used among Peruvian and Brazilian tribes. They utilize the medicine for it's grounding and clarifying effects, and it's ability to balance ones energy centers and glands. Rapeh is used to remove negativity and relieve anxiety. It teaches one how to breathe. These ceremonies can be offered to groups. Email for more details.
