Palo Santo Dreamcatcher Tepi

£60.00 inc VAT

I have a small number of tepi’s handmade by a talented Shipibo artisan. The tepi’s are made from a sustainable source of Palo Santo wood.

Because of their handmade nature, the tepi’s vary in size and style.

Huayruro macho (Ormosia amazonica) are traditionally used to promote good health and bring good luck.

Huayruro Seeds (ormosia coccinea) grow in the Amazon jungle and Central America. It is used in Rituals and ceremonies since before the Inkan times by the Chachapoyas people. They were also used for amulets, good luck, good wealth and to keep negative energies and entities away.

Huayruro Seeds are used to clear ‘susto’. Susto is when someone feels fear or shock because of strong negative energies and entities. The can protect from the ‘evil eye’ which is thought of as a spell placed on young children, and also used to protect against any envy towards you,

One of the most common ways are used is in jewelry, ornaments, and in mesa cloths.

Legend has it that the “Colla” a Real Inkan wife had suffered from a strange illnes, described as a deep depression of the soul, for which Incan doctors suggested that she wore a necklace made from the huayruros.


Healers and shamans of South America believe that Palo Santo has a strong spirit that has to be treated with respect. The spirit continues to live in the wood long after the tree has fallen, and when treated properly, will assist in restoring your physical and energetic wellbeing.

According to shamanic lore, when the smoke from Palo Santo wood enters our personal energy field (the space around us) the tree spirit in this wood clears away negative thoughts, unfortunate situations, wards off evil spirits, and helps to re-establish peace and balance.
