Alfavaca da Mata Hapé is prepared with a base of local organically grown herbs and ashes of the Tsunu tree. Alfavaca da Mata is a herb that helps against what the Indigenous call the 'Panema', a general negative energy that brings sickness and accumulates in the energy field of a person. Certain herbs can help to clear it away, including Kambo, Sananga and certain types of Hapè. This blend can be considered of those types. It provides a strong but clearing and opening sensation with minimal build up in the throat. More information can be read below.

Alfavaca Hapé is a traditional Amazonian snuff made from a blend of ground Grandfather leaves and other plant medicines, including the leaves of the basil plant (Ocimum basilicum), also known as alfavaca in Portuguese. The use of Alfavaca Hapé has been an integral part of shamanic and healing practices in the Amazonian region for centuries.

Here are some potential benefits associated with Alfavaca Hapé:

  1. Promotes focus and clarity: The active compounds found in Alfavaca Hapé, including eugenol and linalool, have been shown to have a calming effect on the mind, promoting focus and clarity of thought.

  2. Supports respiratory health: Grandfather herbs can have a stimulatory effect on the respiratory system. Additionally, Alfavaca Hapé contains compounds such as camphor and cineole, which are believed to have expectorant properties and may help to support respiratory health.

  3. Enhances spiritual practices: The use of Alfavaca Hapé is often associated with spiritual and shamanic practices in the Amazonian region. It is believed to help facilitate communication with spiritual entities and enhance the overall experience of ceremonial practices.

  4. Cleansing properties: The act of blowing the snuff into the nostrils is believed to help cleanse the nasal passages and sinuses, supporting overall respiratory health.

  5. Mood-enhancing effects: Some users report feeling a sense of euphoria or increased energy after using Alfavaca Hapé. This may be due to the nicotine content in the tobacco as well as the potential mood-enhancing effects of the other plant medicines included in the blend.
