A classic. Flor de Jarina is a much appreciated Rapé among the Kuntanawa's; they say that the Jarina flowers make them invisible to enemies, spiritual and physical ones, and the flowers keep the enemies far away.

This a very fine powder with its own colour variation. Extremely powerful and sometimes overwhelming, with strong forest flower flavours. Even in low doses, as soon as the Rapé hits the nose the user feels a widening of the nostrils and water wells into the eyes instantly. As well as the initial strong effect, the Rapé also has strong after effects that lasts sometimes for up to a few minutes or more. The tendency to purge from Flor de Jarina is minimal and the effects keep to the upper area of the body mainly around the head. The duration of the powerful after effects have been known to last a few minutes before grounding resumes. To be taken in a comfortable setting as this powerful Rapé will take a moment or so before returning to one’s stability. Origin: Brazil, Acre.

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 products are processed to a high standard and consistent fineness and dryness, using laboratory grade sieves and dehydrating equipment.

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).

More on the Kuntanawa

Phytelephas macrocarpa, also known as vegetable Ivory, Tagua, Nut Palm and Ivory nut palm, can be found in South America - Brazil, Bolivia, Peru. It is an evergreen tree growing to 3.5 m by 3 m at a slow rate.
The seed is about the size of a hen's egg. As it matures it becomes immensely hard and closely resembles ivory - its uses include the making of buttons, chess piece, etc. The leaves are used for making baskets and for thatching. A fibre obtained from the plant is used for brooms, torches and fire starters. The seed tissue of the immature fruit is liquid and used as a refreshing drink, with a sweet flavour. The fruit has been used as a coffee substitute.
