Kambô Sticks

Double-sided Kambô sticks from the Matses tribe. These Kambô sticks hold approx  120/150 dots of Phyllomedusa Bicolor frog secretion each. The sticks come directly from the Matses tribe from Peru in the Amazon region. I offer one size of Kambô sticks.

The Kambô sticks are uniquely hand-made by indigenous Matses people, so therefore the number of points, the thickness of medicine, and the size will vary with each individual stick and every batch. The stick’s dimensions are approx 12,5 cm by 2,5 cm.

Each Kambô medicine stick comes with a burning stick(s) for burning the points. They are traditional burning sticks, which the Peruvian Matses tribe uses for burning the points called “Tambshi”.

About Kambô

Phyllomedusa bicolor & habitat

Phyllomedusa bicolor is a friendly and nocturnal tree frog that lives high in the trees of the Amazon rainforests. Males can grow to be 91-103mm long, while their female counterparts are 111-119mm. The dorsum of the frog is dark green and the underbelly is a light yellow-white or cream color. There are two large prominent glands extending from behind the eyes.

The frog is always unharmed during the secretion extraction process and is only mildly stressed for a very short amount of time. Generally, it is considered extremely bad form by the indigenous people to harm the frog in any way, as it could offend the animal spirits of the jungle, and bring about misfortune.

The frogs live in the deeper parts of the Amazonian rainforests in countries like.

  • Bolivia
  • Brazil
  • Colombia
  • Peru
  • French Guiana
  • Suriname
  • Venezuela

Benefits of Kambô

Kambô has a long history of usage by various indigenous tribes of the Amazon jungle. They have been using this sacred medicine to boost their immune system, and to improve their hunting skills, by sharpening their perceptual faculties and awareness whilst hunting in the Amazon jungle.

Another traditional function of Kambô is to lift “panema”. This can be thought of as bad luck, depression, laziness, sadness, or negative energetic influences, which attract difficulties and disease.

Kambô Mythology 

According to a Kaxinawá (Huni Kuin – indigenous tribe from Brazil) legend tells that the indigenous people of the village were very sick, and the Shaman Kampu had done everything that was possible to cure them. He tried all the medicinal herbs he knew about but none helped his people’s agony.

So, Shaman Kampu then entered the forest and under the effect of ayahuasca, received the visit of the great God. He brought in His hands a frog, from which He took a white secretion, and taught how to apply.

Returning to the tribe and following the guidelines that he had received the Shaman Kampu was able to cure his community. After his death, the spirit of Kampu has started living in the frog and the indigenous people began to use its secretion to stay active and healthy.
