Nukini Rapé Immune System Booster (Matico x Cetico)
The Nukini Rapé Immune System Booster is a potent blend of traditional folk medicine that has been used for centuries in South and Central America. Its main ingredient is the ‘Matico’ plant (Piper aduncum), a member of the Piperaceae family known for its antiseptic, antibacterial, antiviral, antimicrobial, astringent, diuretic, and tonic properties. It has been traditionally used as a remedy for digestive disorders, stomach cancer, and to increase the body’s disease resistance.
Studies have shown that the ‘Matico’ plant contains a variety of compounds that may contribute to its therapeutic properties, including alkaloids, essential oils, and phenolic compounds. Its essential oil has been found to have antibacterial and antifungal activity against a range of microorganisms, including Staphylococcus aureus and Candida albicans. The plant’s alkaloids have also been shown to have analgesic and anti-inflammatory effects.
The Nukini Rapé Immune System Booster also contains ash from Nicotiana rustica leaves, which has been traditionally used for its psychoactive properties. When making this blend, the ‘Matico’ plant is ground and mixed with the ashes of ‘Cetico’ or Yarumo (Cecropia membranacea), a plant known for its hypoglycemic, analgesic, antimalarial, and anti-inflammatory properties. The resulting product is an aromatic and relaxing blend that can promote a deep sense of peace and calmness while also uplifting and grounding the user.

The Nukini People
The Nukini tribe is a small tribe of 900 people that lives along the lush green banks of the Moa River in northwestern Brazil. Their language comes from the Pano linguistic root, and their rich cultural expressions and genuine lifestyle are all in harmony with the most pristine native Amazon surroundings. The Rapé from the Nukini is known to be filled with feminine power, as women often 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 it is made by Francisca Nuquini, a tribe elder who has been gathering and preparing sacred plants for as long as she can remember. According to Francisca, the power of the Rapé lies 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. The plant recipes for each blend are tribe secrets that are kept to the women in her village and are only passed on to the following generations.
What is Rapé?
Rapé is a traditional snuff used by various indigenous tribes of South America, predominantly from Brazil and Peru. It is made from a ground mixture of plants, tree bark, seeds, and ash, and is blown into the nostrils through a bone or bamboo pipe called a Tepi or Kuripe. Each tribe has its own rapé formula and typically, women gather the ingredients and perform the mixing and grinding process as a ritual.
The use of Rapé aims to restore our connection to nature and a sense of grounding, as well as clear mental fog and confusion. These powerful snuffs bring about physical and spiritual wellness, and are considered sacred by indigenous communities.
