Mulateiro Ash Powder Rapé: A Sacred Blend from the Amazon
Experience the power of the Amazon with Mulateiro Ash Powder Rapé. This unique blend is made from the sacred Capirona tree (Calycophyllum spruceanum) by a Katukina shaman living deep in the Brazilian Amazon. The bark is carefully roasted and ground in the same way that the Katukinas have been practicing for millennia. The result is a fine powder that can be added to existing rapés or used to create your own favorite blend.
Capirona Tree: A Sacred Tree with Healing Properties
The Capirona tree is a pioneer amazonian canopy tree that grows up to 30 meters high. It produces an abundance of small, white aromatic flowers and sheds off its bark entirely once or twice a year, avoiding lichens, fungi, epiphytes, and lianas. The smooth green bark underneath is somewhat like a sunburnt human and has been used in folk medicine as antifungal and antibacterial. Shamans also use it as an admixture for the Ayahuasca brew. Modern science has found it to be high in phenols and organic acids as well as antioxidants.
The Katukina People: Guardians of the Amazon
The Katukina or Catuquinha are an indigenous group that inhabits the southwestern Brazilian state of Acre. They belong to the same Pano linguistic family and are closely related to the Marúbo and the Kawanawas. Chanting rituals and profound forest survival skills keep this group united and in harmony with the rich amazonian environment they come from.
What is Rapé?
Rapé is a traditional snuff used by various indigenous tribes of South America, predominantly tribal people from Brazil and Peru. It contains 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’. Each tribe has its own rapé formula, and the selection, mixture, and grinding process are regarded as a ritual only to be performed by a reputable healer. The use of Rapé aims to restore our connection to nature and a sense of grounding. It clears mental fog and confusion, eliminating negative thought patterns. These powerful snuffs bring about physical and spiritual wellness.
