WHAT IS KAMBO?
Kambo is derived from the secretion of the Amazonian Phyllomedusa Bicolor frog. This secretion contains a unique mix of bioactive peptides that produce incredible benefits for the body and mind. Italian pharmacologist Vittorio Erspamer of the University of Rome and two-time Nobel Prize nominee was the first scientist to analyze Kambo in a laboratory, concluding that Kambo contains a “fantastic chemical cocktail with potential medical applications unmatched by any other amphibian.”
The benefits of Kambo stem from the bioactive peptides and neuropeptides found in the Kambo secretion. The bioactive peptides found in Kambo positively affect humans due to their health-promoting properties. They can exert several beneficial effects like preventing diseases or modulating the physiological systems once they are absorbed in the human body. These peptides perform a broad range of functions that can be involved in the gastrointestinal system, the cardiovascular system, the immune system and the nervous system.
Tribes of the Amazon often refer to Kambo as "Hunting Magic" as it strengthens the physical body and the mind. Kambo brings energy and stamina into the body and sharpens the senses. It makes the mind still and allows one to think clearly. The small things that bother us daily do not seem to be as significant following a Kambo session, allowing one to focus on the things that truly matter in life.

Sananga, also known as Becchete (a Matis and Matsés word for a medicinal plant) are very powerful eye drops extracted from the shrub Tabernaemontana undulate, which contains iboga alkaloids. When applied directly to the eyes, it's said by the tribes to have the effect of giving the environment greater texture and dimension. Sananga's ability to improve vision is its most well-known attribute. Along with enhanced vision, it has been known to increase energy and may even provide relief from pain.
Often before Kambo, one might be anxious or nervous about the upcoming experience and might feel "stuck in their head." The optional offering of sananga allows the participant to "get out of their heads" and grounded into their body. Although the experience of sananga can be challenging, after time it can allow the participant to fall into a deeply relaxed and even sometimes meditative state. This helps one to relax and prepare for the upcoming Kambo experience.
Hapé, or rapé (pronounced ha-pay), is a sacred shamanic snuff that's been used by the tribes of the Amazon basin for hundreds, maybe thousands, of years and is essential to their culture and history. It is traditionally prepared by a ceremonial pounding of wild tobacco with tree ashes and then patiently filtered through a fine mesh. The ashes come from the bark of a variety of medicinal or sacred trees. South American shamans use of tobacco is sacred, wholesome and medicinal and their use has little in common with our western ways of tobacco use. Rapé has been used by the indigenous tribes for several purposes, such as initiation rites, social rites, female puberty rites, and healing ceremonies.
The benefits of rapé include: the ability to cleanse the sinuses and respiratory tract; calms and stills the mind, allowing one to enter into a meditative state; helps disperse negative and dense energies/emotions; provides a calming and grounding effect before a Kambo session.
