Rapé made with Mulaterio ashes exceed most other Rapé's in strength and intensity. We have been working with one of our Rapé providers for more than 4 years, and this new Rapé comes from his student. This Rapé can be considered a non tribal blend yet it is made with ingredients obtained from the Katukina people. The techniques to make this Rapé remain traditional. A large mortar and pestle is used to manually pound the ingredients into a fine dust. The effect is comparable with the very popular Yawanawa Mulateiro, yet a slightly sweeter Tabaco variation is used.
It is a very fine powder that has a light brown appearance. It provides a sharp initial sensation that has a tendency to immediately make the eyes water. The mind is released of thoughts and one is brought into a peaceful space with a high level of focus. Mulaterio ashes (Calycophyllum spruceanum) are considered to have anti ageing as well as anti parasitical properties and are said to be used in Rapé to release tensions of the right and left cerebral lobes, thereby providing profound balance and equilibrium of mind and body. The ash of the cask of the Mulateiro tree is a powerful ash used to firm spiritual works, and is considered good for concentration. The Mulateiro bark is used for it’s rejuvenating qualities and for other medicinal use apart from it's use in Rapé.
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.

Other names: Mulateiro, Capirona, Pau Mulata
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.
This mixture contains Mulaterio ashes (Calycophyllum spruceanum). Mulateiro belongs to the Rubiaceae family and is a canopy tree of 30 meter height. Interestingly its bark can shed and regenerate on a yearly basis, enabling a sustainable harvest and attributing regenerative properties to the use of its tree bark. The tree is known as Mulateiro or Pau-Mulato in Brazil, but it has the name Capirona in Peru. It has a long tradition in the indigenous Amazonian culture, including many medicinal uses. Dried bark is used to counteract fungi, parasites, infections, and wounds or burns. Moreover, it is also often added to Ayahuasca. A tea of the bark is, in addition, used to treat diabetes, and its resin is used for abscesses and skin cancers.
