Chacapa - also known as Shakapa, Chakapa, Chacarpa or Huaira Sacha - is a ritual leaf rattle that is used in Amazonian healing rituals along with shaman drums, rattles, mouth arches, feathers, tobacco and songs.

As their sound is reminiscent of the murmur of the mighty treetops of the forest and their movements allow the air to circulate gently, they carry the "wind of the forest" within them. This makes these leaf tufts particularly suitable for wind or air rituals. Our Chacapas can also be used in healing work and sound therapy. Evenly beaten or shaken, the rhythm also supports trance journeys, can be used for energetic massages or also for sweat lodge ceremonies.

The sound of our Chacapas has similarities to the percussion brush used in jazz, which is often played on snare drums and which produces the rustling sound typical for the Chacapa. The sound of this ritual instrument unfolds very finely and intensively, allowing imaginative improvisation and creative performing.

The sound of the Eucalyptus Chacapa resembles that of a Reed Chacapa and is just as long-lasting, fine and rushing. Originally native to Australia, eucalyptus played an important role in the various Aboriginal cultures. Its fire-resistant wood was used as a material for the production of didgeridoos, household appliances and boats, and the leaves were mainly used for medical purposes. They relieve pain, reduce fever and free the respiratory tract. On a spiritual level, the eucalyptus is said to support self-confidence and the joy of communication, to clear the mind and thus promote learning processes. It also helps against exhaustion, releases emotional blockages and releases negative energies.

Our Eucalyptus-Chacapa is a regional natural product from Finland and can therefore deviate slightly from the picture. It is also only available seasonally. The handle is wrapped in recycled cotton fabric.
