According to the history of the indigenous tribe of the Kaxinawá, several members of their tribe suddenly became very ill one day. The shaman of their tribe, Kampu,( Hence the name) tried every herb, elixir, and ritual to heal his people.
After several days and no progress, Kampu sojourned deep into the Amazon jungle. Kampu, was guided to go under the influence of a psychoactive herbal brew famously known as Ayahuasca for answers. The spirit of Ayahuasca revealed to him how to speak, capture, and extract the white waxy secretion from the Giant Monkey Frog.
Ayahuasca then showed Kampu how to apply the Frog secretion to skin burns on the top layer of the skin.
Kampu, returned back to his tribe with new hope and knowledge. He did just as he was instructed by Ayahuasca, and all his brothers and sisters were healed.

It’s as if there was a cloud on the person, preventing the good things to come, then, when they take the kambô; it becomes a ‘green light’, which opens the way, making things easier.” – Kaxinawá kambô shaman
