Types of Blow
The way to apply it is blowing it through both nostrils (How to use rapé ) using a projector that is a wooden tube (Tepi ) in which on one side you place your nose (rapé and nostrils ) and on the other hand the facilitator blows you. The way you blow yourself is important, do it with love, to bring peace to your mind and body. Do not do it to silence the voice of your mind violently, but with openness, disposition and trust that medicine will do its job.
Also there are also self-applicators (kuripes) to apply it to yourself. Rapé is not snorted because it does not travel the same way in the brain, nor does it decalcify the pineal gland in that way. Therefore, it is essential to have applicatorsand the right disposition, time and place for it.
