The Katukina prepare some of the most wonderful varieties available for self healing. Much like other Cumaru varieties this blend is extremely strong. It has a dark sandy colour and a fantastic aroma. Once the immediate intensity drops away one feels deeply relaxed and in a calm state of being for many hours. The Parica is blended with Cumaru seeds that are well known for its pleasant character. Cumaru or Dipteryx odorata is a tree known for giving strength to the Rapé. Cumaru is also a medicine widely used for respiratory ailments in the form of teas and other preparations. The first moments can be extremely intense and some purging and a lot of sneezing is possible. Tears will likely be instantaneous and the suggestion of being seated before application is advised. It can take more time than usual to expel the powder completely from the nose and for some time afterward it will continue to slowly make its way in the the back of the throat. Overall the experience is very comforting and after such an intense start it completely shakes away any and all background chatter and helps calms the mind and physical body. Best used in focused ritual circumstances.
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 diarrhoea 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.
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.
A wonderful and detailed article about the Katukina and our connection with them, can be found here.
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.
