Nukini Free Spirit Rapé (Tsunu & Selected Herbs)
Experience the traditional Nukini Free Spirit Rapé, a medium intensity blend that has a delicate aroma that accentuates the presence of combined ashes. Made from organic tobacco, Tsunu and a selection of herbs, this high-quality blend offers clarity of thought and wards off negative thoughts or energies.
Tsunu ash is derived from burning the wood of the Platycyamus regnellii tree. It is a commonly used ingredient by Amazonian tribes in making their rapés. Within some Brazilian tribes, Tsunu goes by the name Rume. This ingredient is highly valued for its purifying and grounding properties.
The Nukini People
The Nukini tribe, a small community of 900 people located in the center of the state of Acre in northwestern Brazil, is known for their rich cultural expressions and genuine lifestyle that is in harmony with the biodiverse and pristine native Amazon surroundings. The Rapé from the Nukini is known to be filled with feminine power, as it is women who gather, select, formulate and prepare the plants for medicines and handicrafts. Many of their blends contain a flowery, fresh fragrance that offers a wonderful sense of grounding and clarity.
This Nukini Rapé comes directly from the Nukini tribe and is made by Francisca Nukini, an elder who has been gathering and preparing sacred plants for as long as she can remember. She shares the ancient secrets passed down to her from her Grandmother about how to prepare the best Rapé. According to Francisca, the power is in the songs she sings to the plants before harvesting them and the special manner in which each part of the plant is respected and cared for throughout the entire preparation process. According to Francisca, there are three types of Rapé: aromatic, medicinal and energizing. She said the plant recipes for each blend are tribe secrets that are kept by the women in her village, only to be passed on to the following generations.
What is Rapé?
Rapé is a traditional snuff used by various indigenous tribes of South America, predominantly tribal people from Brazil and Peru. Rapé blends contain a ground mixture of plants, tree bark, seeds and ash. The fine powder is blown into each nostril through a bone or bamboo pipe called a ‘Tepi’ or ‘Kuripe’. The use of Rapé aims to restore our connection to nature and a sense of grounding. It clears mental fog and confusion while eliminating negative thought patterns. These powerful snuffs bring about physical and spiritual wellness.
