Bottle, 10 Ml, 7 Gr from Brazil (SKU 4364)
Parica from the Katukina tribe has wonderful overtones of deep flora within the forest. The powder is of fine quality and is slightly darker grey than usual. On first application it appears supremely powerful, and within a few moments levels out to a deep serenity and clarity. Parica seems to help clear the sinuses long after removal of phlegm and general expelling of mucus. A freshness and ability to breathe deeply continues long after the effects have dissipated. More information below.
Packed in 10 ml clear plastic bottles containing 7 gram.
This is one of 5 new Rapé's that we have obtained directly from the chief of the Katukina tribe. For more information about our collaboration with the chief check out our homepage.
Parica from the Katukina tribe has wonderful overtones of deep flora within the forest. The powder is of fine quality and is slightly darker grey than usual. On first application it appears supremely powerful, and within a few moments levels out to a deep serenity and clarity. Parica seems to help clear the sinuses long after removal of phlegm and general expelling of mucus. A freshness and ability to breathe deeply continues long after the effects have dissipated. Still a very strong variety from the Katukina with purifying physical effects that can be useful in the fight against organic weakness, purifying us of harmful substances and with that, bringing a reinvigoration for those who consecrate. Due to its expectorant action, Angico (Parica) is indicated to act in our respiratory system on problems such as asthma, bronchitis, cough and catarrh. It is also excellent at relieving diarrhea and dysentery. Among other properties, Angico is an astringent and hemostatic agent, where it assists in healing and fighting bleeding. Even more strengthening mental energies are to be expected aside a deep physical healing.
Based on its work in the respiratory system and the gut, this is a Rapé that acts on the heart Chakras, responsible for dealing with unconditional love and compassion. And due to stimulation of the umbilical Chakra, can be considered beneficial for issues in relationships, and with violence and addictions. The fine powder absorbs well and it tends to remain in the nostrils for the duration of the sitting. A very fresh preparation well received by all. Definitely one for the collection.
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.

Feedback from our favourite reporter:
"...To test this new Katukina Parika Rapé I had set my intention on a good grounding. I test as always with 2 small scoops, in order to feel the comparison with other blends. The start of the Rapé was sharp and immediately a lot of tears flowed. The Rapé does not easily find his way to the throat so very pleasant. A very strong sense of 'presence' was immediately felt. All senses were sharpened. I could hear my own voice very clear, all sounds was very audible. It is hard to describe but I felt how each observation went off very well in myself. For me this feels like a good 'grounding' Rapé, one that brings you well here and now. Ideal if you want to feel good after a day in other realities (such as a day of work at the computer), it shows you where you actually are and brings you back. We all know that feeling that we mainly hang around in our head, at some story, but not here in our body. This Rapé certainly does the trick. I took this Rapé one day after an intense ceremonial work with a group of people. In my opinion this becomes one of the Rapé's that I will use more often for myself to conclude a ceremony and to land well in the present to listen to what my body needs at that moment. This Rapé gave me no nausea or dizziness, but I felt my body as such that I had to surrender to the signals, these were fatigue and I could find a deep healing calm to lie down. After a while I experienced a lightness in my chest and abdominal area, an openness, a very pleasant feeling, the subtle work of the Tobacco was working even deeper. Clearly a Rapé that can be used for many purposes. My conclusion after this first experience is: good grounding in the here and now, softness for myself, and seeing things as they are, clearly..."

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.
