Bottle, 10 Ml, 8 Gr from Brazil (SKU 3642)
(New batch #7155). Katukina Menthol is a popular traditionally made Rapè using authentic tribal ingredients and ashes, and Menthol crystals. Menthol opens up the breathing channels allowing deep inhalations and greater oxygen intake. One may feel light headed or experience floating sensations with a medium to large dose. With smaller doses a general clearing and widening of the channels is experienced as well as an easy flow of fluids in the sinuses. It is extremely refreshing. It is advised to use this Rapé in moderation and only when needed. More information below.

New Batch. A new batch may vary in effect, flavour and consistency from the previous batches.
Katukina Menthol is a popular traditionally made Rapé using authentic tribal ingredients and ashes, and Menthol crystals taken to the Amazon by a friend travelling and learning with the Katukina peoples. Just the right amount of Menthol was used to produce this powerful preparation. Ingredients were obtained from the Katukina peoples and therefore we named this non-tribal blend "Katukina Menthol".
Being of very high frequency itself, the cooling and slicing effect of this Rapè blend clears away all blockages built up by ones daily life. Menthol opens up the breathing channels allowing deep inhalations and greater oxygen intake. One may feel light headed or experience floating sensations with a medium to large dose. With smaller doses a general clearing and widening of the channels is experienced as well as an easy flow of fluids in the sinuses, resulting in release of phlegm via the nose and throat. It is advised to use this Rapé in moderation and only when needed.
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.

"...Sharp as a knife and cold like a freezing winter breeze. I call this Rapé "ice bear" powder. I have now carried this bottle with me for a week or so and I love it. Where some other of my favourites sometime leave me with a dry nose full of powder residue, this Rapé produces a lot of fluids and allows for a good clean of the sinuses. I tend to leave the powder inside until the fluids drip out. This one is lovely and pretty strong. A dose too high and it feels like my eyeballs freeze. Not too heavy on the Tabaco and not too grey either. There is no other Rapé like this..."

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.
