Mulateiro & Chacruna
The base of this Rapé is made from the ash of the Mulateiro or Capirona tree, a tall Amazonian canopy tree that produces small, white aromatic flowers. The bark of the tree is used by various South American indigenous tribes for its antifungal and antibacterial properties, as well as its high content of phenols, organic acids, and antioxidants. The ash of the Capirona is mixed with the leaves of Chacruna, a commonly used plant that is added to Ayahuasca brews for its visionary properties. Chacruna contains a high content of tryptamines, including Dimethyltryptamine, which is responsible for the Ayahuasca brew’s psychedelic effects.
Francisca Sings to the Plants Before Harvesting
Our Nukini Rapé Energizing with Mulateiro & Chacruna comes directly from the Nukini tribe, and is handcrafted by Francisca Nuquini, a tribe elder with a deep knowledge of plant medicine. Francisca sings to the plants before harvesting them, following the ancient traditions passed down to her from her grandmother. She prepares the Rapé with care and respect, ensuring that each part of the plant is used in the right way. According to Francisca, there are three types of Rapé: aromatic, medicinal, and energizing, and the plant amount for each blend is a secret that is passed down to the women in her village and kept within the tribe.
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.
