This is a medium grey Rapé with a wonderful light and uplifting aroma. The name Mafumeira is another name for Samauma or the Kapok tree (Ceiba pentrandra) from which this blend utilises for the ash of its bark.
Samauma is is a tree from the amazon that can get thousands of years old. With a height of 80 to 90 meters and a diameter which can reach 5 to 8 meters, its an unforgettable sight. To hug a grown exemplary of one of these majestic inhabitants of the forest, a circle of around 25 adult persons is needed. Several tribes of the Amazon remember that the each Samauma tree has a big portal under its base which serves as a communication portal to other existing worlds, invisible to the human eye. This portal serves as a bridge from the everyday visible world to the spiritual universe of the Amazon and its protectors. Through this portal the mythological magical beings of the mother forest go in and out. The ash of Samauma is only made with parts of the bark that peeled off from the tree naturally, which often happens when strong rain occurs. Cutting any of those trees is considered as an act of violence and disrespect towards the spirit of the forest.
Mafumeria Rapé is light yet has a sharpness and penetration that shifts the user into a state of heightened focus. It is ideal to clean out mucus that accumulated in the nose and sinus and connects easily to the energies of nature which this majestic tree brings. Immediate eye watering is prolific and whilst a little powder may reach the back of the throat the taste is clear and not uncomfortable. Following the cascade of immediate physical reactions the user will experience focus and a sense of 'awakening' into a new moment, ever present and highly tuned.
Leo the maker of this Rapè has prepared a well balanced mixture of the Samauma together with Mulateiro to complete this beautiful blend. There is an equilibrium between the effects of the uplifting Samauma which promotes spiritual travels along with the Mulateiro action on the physical body that gives a down to earth energy. This resulting blend fortifies the body and elevates the spirit and really gets your breathing smooth clean and easy, and it also tastes nice, giving the otherwise subtle and light tasting Samauma a powerful touch.
This is an extremely fine and dry powder. It takes great effort to produce such a fine powder at a 150 micron fineness. This is our standard because this provides the best Rapé experience. All our Rapé is processed to a high standard and consistent fineness and dryness, using laboratory grade sieves and dehydrating equipment, before packaging.

Katukina or Catuquina, Katokina, Katukena, Katukino are generic terms that are attributed to five linguistically distinct but geographically proximate indigenous groups that live in southwestern Brazil at the border of the Amazonas and Acre. The Katukina are a tribe that is very connected to the usage of sacred plants. They consider themselves as the first tribe to receive the Kambo medicine straight from the frog. They still carry a vast knowledge about plants and the spirit of the world. Their Rapé is strong and deep, and it carries the wild and powerful spirit of the jungle.
