Shamanic Snuff – Golden
Sacred Connection Golden is a nice golden Rapé with Caneleiro ashes and refreshing herbs. This Sacred Connection. Shamanic Snuff contains a touch of eucalyptus and minty native herbs such as pixuri (Licaria puchury-major). These herbs can open the respiratory system as well as the senses. They can help relax the mind by clearing negative thoughts. In indigenous medicine the states of ones mind is considered of fundamental importance to physical health. The so called panema which is the beginning of dis-ease begins in the mind. Clearing negativity is the basis of a healthy and happy life.
Although eucalyptus isn’t native some indigenous snuff makers use it for its refreshing qualities. It is in Brazil a very common tree that is planted all over for wood production. In the right ratio the Eucalypt Rapé Snuff refreshes in just the right way. Many times just a few leaves are added to lighten the strong scent of the Nicotiana Rustica tobacco.
Pixuri is a special herb used quite a lot in different Rapés by the tribes of the region – in this snuff, we use its leaves. It goes also by other names like Apuxuri and is related to Nissural and Katsural. Some people say it is the same others say there are slight differences. The seeds also have a delightful flavour and are used in cooking, and are sometimes called Brazilian nutmeg. Pixuri contains safrole, which is a stimulant and tonic. As a tea the herb is said to treat stomach problems. In the Brazilian spiritist Umbanda religion Pixuri is used for its supposed magical qualities. They use it in a variety of mystical potions and especially with offerings to attract love.
Use with respect and care; it is a tobacco product and can be habit forming!
