This Rapé is a fine and flowing powder that has a grey appearance. It provides a sharp, powerful initial sensation that has a tendency to immediately make the eyes water. A large amount of power and energy can be felt in the first few moments with a subtle and peaceful after effect. 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 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 Mulaterio is a powerful Rapé that we have offered you since the formation of our company. Our dear friend in Brazil who made this and several other very famous Rapé's for many years has unfortunately passed away. His student is now producing the same varieties and therefore this batch is unique and carries a new energy with it.

This is a very fine powder, though a little more coarse than usual. It takes great effort to produce such a fine powder, entirely void of stems, veins, grains and bits, at a 200 micron fineness. The fineness is our standard because this provides the best Rapé experience. All of our Rapé varieties are processed to a high standard and a consistent fineness, using laboratory grade sieves and milling equipment.

Reports from customers:

"...As stated in the description, this is a very strong, and very sharp Rapé. Grounding, centering, meditative, and purgative. This is the second Rapé I’ve experienced from Kutukina and I’m really impressed by the quality and effectiveness of your fine-screening process. Thank you. This is an amazing Rapé..."

"...First there is a sense of coming home to the self to make a deeper connection to the soul. A deep dissolving and reconnection and restructuring of the holistic self. This medicine then relaxes the physical body to allow guidance to flow into the consciousness. Definitely a "male" presence is felt..."

The Yawanawá, or the tribe of the white-lipped peccary, are a small tribe of 1,300 people, living remotely in only a few villages along the Gregório River. They are known as warriors, as they always keep on fighting, even in hard times. At some point in history their tribe was almost extinct, with only about 300 members left. Nowadays their tribe has grown again, and their traditions and knowledge have been conserved in a very strict way. 
       The Yawanawá were the first tribe that initiated a woman to become a shaman, setting a huge example in the history of shamans. In their language rapé is called Rume and the Yawanawá preferably blend Rume with Tsunu ashes and mapacho, which gives this special blend a very refined taste. In addition, Tsunu is used for healing purposes and has a supportive role during ayahuasca ceremonies.

More information on the Yawanawa

Leonel, 25 years old, father of 2 kids, is a gifted handicraft artist and just finished his pharmacology studies. 
When he was 15 years old he started to show interest in spirituality and native roots of his country Brasil. Many paths started to unfold, and in 2011 he had the chance to work with Yagé for the first time. During 2012 he frequently visited Yagé ceremonies and began to develop a deep interest in study of native cultures and forest medicines. He also joined a native medicine songs study group where heʼs been part for a couple of years. 
End of 2012, on a trip to beautiful Chapada dos Veadeiros brought him deeper into Rapé and the early months of 2013 brought a feeling of a growing urge to dedicate himself to this powerful jungle medicine and to dive deeper into the living science of it. 
The same year at a singing session of the native songs study group they received some native visitors from the Fulni-o tribe of Pernambuco in northeast Brasil whom joined in for some songs and Leonel began to feel deep appreciation for those people and their culture which led into the beginning of an a extended friendship with some of them. 
End 2013 he met a famous Rapé producer and transpersonal psychotherapist, well respected for his work with Rapé and holding space in forest medicine circles. Since the first encounter they both felt the flow and after some months Leonel could start working with him learning the fine arts of manufacturing and the traditional recipes gathered from different tribes. He also could assist in the circles with his songs and the Rapé, this period in his life being his time as an apprentice. 
In the year 2014 after ceremony where the brothers from the Funi-O tribe assisted, Leonel began to manifest the vision of a close partnership with them, bringing them from far northeast Pernambuco to Sao Paolos concrete jungle to enhance cultural exchange and to open them doors to apply their traditional medicines (Jurema), but also offering them a platform to sell their artwork and handicraft. Since then he has travelled with members of the tribe to several Brazilian cities following the same purpose and interconnecting also with other tribes living on the Brazilian territoryʼs. Through this work he got in contact with members of several tribes that all contributed a lot to his studies of the matter and brought him to a deeper level of knowledge. These tribes are the Huni Kuin (Acre), Yawanawa (Acre), Kariri-Xoco (Alagoas), Katukina (Acre), Guarani (Sao Paolo), Pataxo (Bahia) and the Huichol people from Mexico.
Nowadays his manufacturing skills are firm and strong and after all these years he continues making his Rapé in an artisanal way following the traditions he learned, instead of using any machine help during the main process he stamps hours with the traditional pilão and sings to the medicine, but he is also being open to new trends, fusions and creative ideas. He uses best quality pure tobacco originating from the Northeast of the country and the best quality ashes coming from the Brazilian amazon, all ingredients originating from native sources. 
The work heʼs doing serves as a bridge between native cultures and between traditional systems of medicine, environmental management and traditional art. 
His mission is to open access for people to this cultures and to facilitate access to traditional medicine of good quality in Brazil and abroad, always working in cooperation with other partners. His academical work during his formation as a pharmacologist  the last years focussed mainly on the sciences of ethnobotany, ethnofarmacology and pharmacognosy, planning and realising studies about the potential of medicinal plants as a treatment for arterial hypertension and studying and developing ideas for natural cosmetic and other natural products.

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. Moreover, it is also often added to Ayahuasca brews.
