Sepá Smudge: Holy Resin of Healing
2 in stock
We recently acquired a very strong high quality Sepá harvested wildly by the Puyanawa tribe in the virgin forest of Acre. For most of the Brazilian tribes, Sepá is used daily as their go-to smudging agent (similar to how the Colombian tribes traditionally use copal). If a person is sick, if there is any issue to resolve between people or in the community or any general accumulation of negative energy the first thing done in is to light some Sepá to cleanse the space. It is the smoke of the Sepá that carries their prayers.
Within the Yawanawa, Puyanawa, & Huni Kuin tribes, sepá is a natural perfume found in the home of every single person in the village! It’s very common, but also considered a healer’s greatest ally in ceremony and rituals. The cacique or healer invokes the forest spirits at the moment of smudging and makes his or her requests to the divine beings of the forest to free that person from all heavy energy. When receiving the sepá smoke, the person feels an incredible well-being and their soul is renewed.
We sourced this powerful smudging agent due to many requests we received from you our community. In our recent workshop with Hushahu Yawanawa, she shared that the sepá smoke is the best agent for cleansing our kuripes and tepis. You can light your sepá over coals just as you would copal and then use the smoke to pass through your hapé applicator to cleanse it of any heavy or dense energies it may have picked up during its use. It is very important to care for our pipes as well as all of our healing tools; this smudge is the perfect tool to give nourishment for our most sacred objects.
