Bamboo herbal snuff applicators, handmade.. They are used to administer herbal snuffs and powders such as Nu-nu, Rapé and Tobacco snuffs. These wonderful works of art are produced from bamboo, in Sweden. Approximate size 15-17 cm.
Traditionally, Nu-nu, Rapé and Tobacco snuffs are applied by using a pipe made from bamboo or bone, which is blown through each nostril, on both sides. They can be self-administered using a V-shaped self-applicator pipe, which connects the mouth to the nostrils. Alternatively, the can be administered by another person using a blow pipe, which connects the blower’s mouth to the other person’s nostrils. The self-applicator pipe is known as ‘Kuripe’, and the blow pipe is know as a ‘Tepi’ in the Brazilian tradition. General suggestion is to use a pea sized amount (50% for each nostril) of medicine for beginners, and dosage can be increased after prolonged use of a specific rapé. Also, it is suggested that you use them within a quiet sacred space without any interruptions – sitting upright, either cross-legged or in a chair with eyes closed after application. Also, suggested slow breathing after application through the mouth/nose is very important.
