Bottle, 10 Ml, 7 Gr from Brazil (SKU 3357)
Alfavaca da Mata Rapé is prepared with a base of local organically grown Tobacco and ashes of the Tsunu tree. Alfavaca da Mata is a herb that helps against what the Indigenous call the 'Panema', a general negative energy that brings sickness and accumulates in the energy field of a person. Certain herbs and medicines help to clear it away, including Kambo, Sananga and certain types of Rapè. This blend can be considered of those types. More information below.
Packed in 10 ml clear plastic bottles containing 7 gr.
An all time classic.
Alfavaca de Mata Rapé has been made by a member of the Kuntanawa tribe that lives along the Jurua river close to the Peruvian border, on the river Tejos, a side river from the Jurua. This Rapé is prepared with a base of local organically grown Tobacco and ashes of the Tsunu tree. Alfavaca da Mata is a herb that helps against what the Indigenous call the 'Panema', a general negative energy that brings sickness, uncomfortable feeling and makes things go wrong in daily life when negative energy manifests and starts to accumulate in the energy field of a person. Certain herbs and medicines help to clear it away, including Kambo, Sananga and certain types of Rapè. This blend can be considered of those types, with a strong but clearing and opening sensation with minimal build up in the throat. As a fine powder, most is absorbed into the nose and even though the first moment is sharp and intense the overall effects are managable. The tonal quality is high frequency and afterwards one can feel refreshed and ready again to deal with the realities of every day life.
This yet another new genuine tribal Rapé from our close friend who lives in Brazil and is exchanging with the tribes people.
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 produces the best Rapé experience. All our products are processed to a high standard and consistent fineness and dryness, using laboratory grade sieves and dehydrating equipment, before packaging.
Reports from customers:
"...A rapè which works in depth to create a good alignment and helps out of limitations. It brings courage, presence, clarity for righteous actions. An excellent Rapé to have at home..."
Other names: Kuntanawa Tsunu
Like the Nukini, the Kuntanawa tribe became almost extinct due to the massacres of the latex cycle. One single family was left after the rubber boom and only since the beginning in 2000 a small group of Kuntanawa started to claim their indigenous heritage (Pantoja et al. 2014; Labate et al. 2014). Unfortunately, their culture is still under threat and the Kuntanawa are still struggling to regain full ethnic recognition and they are trying to regain their territory. Nowadays, there are only about 250 members left that are scattered throughout the region of Acre, Brazil. In order to survive, the Kuntanawa are joining other Pano linguistic tribes and they are organizing festivals together to share their traditions, their rituals, and their culture with foreign visitors. This small Pano linguistic tribe strongly values the ritualistic use of Ayahuasca to teach them and to guide them. The Kuntanwa even hold a strong believe that Ayahuasca will unravel their ancient knowledge and bring back their partly lost traditions (Pantoja et al. 2014). However, their language seems to be irrecoverably lost (Labate et al. 2014).
