Mambe

Considered sacred by our ancestors and older than any religion, Mambe has been used by indigenous people for thousands of years. The coca leaf is crushed from the product of hard work, patience, and love. It is mixed with the ashes of the Yarumo tree.

As a source of strength, it provides the energy needed to walk up the mountains. Containing nearly 5 times the protein per gram of red meat, this superfood can also be used as a meal supplement.

Its beauty is in the openness and honesty it brings as it connects the mind to the heart and allows for deep and direct conversation between those around the fire.

Ambil

According to some indigenous people, the ambil together with mambe are the representation of Man and Woman or fire and water. Ambil is made from the leaves of tobacco or the maraco tree and mixed together with vegetable salts obtained from different sources. It is a paste that helps to deeply cleanse the body and prescribe vital energy to the person. When mixed with the mambe, it is used in a circle of words to reach agreements and solve problems. It is believed that Ambil will give us the necessary wisdom to understand and be understood.
