Katukina Rapé – Blond
Katukina Blond is a beautiful fresh Rapé made by our friends from the Katukina tribe. Sacred Snuff made with a mixture of the finest tobaccos. The first is the local tobacco they call moi because of its shape like the Peruvian Mapacho Masso. You can say it is Brazilian Mapacho, just much nicer than the Peruvian one. They grow it organically. A very nicely flavoured Nocotiana Rustica grown by the local forest dwellers and cured according to local tradition. The other is the very potent natural corda or ‘string’ tobacco. This tobacco comes rolled in ropes and comes from the Northeastern city of Arapiraca where they grow their fine Rustica tobacco for centuries.
They add a touch of eucalyptus for extra freshness. It helps to open the nasal passages and clear the mind. Although eucalyptus is not native to Brazil as a herb it got incorporated into rapé tradition. A touch of eucalyptus into a well made snuff gives it just that touch of freshness whit out dominating the caracter of the medicine. It is a pleasant refreshing Katukina medicine good for lifting the spirit and not too overwhelming. Opens the mind and, good for in the morning to start the day with a breeze.
The Katukina Blond Rapé is a pleasant and medium strength medicine. This Shamanic Snuff comes from the Katukina tribal lands called Capinas. It lies close to the city of Cruzeiro do Sul. Cruzeiro do Sul is one of the most western cities in Brazil close to the Peruvian border. This is the region they call the Jurua valley because of the river that crosses the city. It is region full of indigenous communities and virgin forests full of medicine. Here they say that the best medicine of all is the forest itself. Enjoy the breeze!
Use with respect and care; it is a tobacco product and can be habit forming!
