Kuntanawa Hapé and medicine
Most of the medicines the Kuntanawa use in Rapé they also use to make herbal baths and medicinal teas. The art of herbal baths for spiritual cleansing, physical healing and magical purposes is very common indifferent Brazilian religious practices. It comes from both the indigenous and African influence on Brazilian mystical popular culture. It is very interesting how cultures that probably never had contact in the past share very similar concepts in their understanding of the non physical. And just as a side note never say never, who knows who sailed where in the past, but that is a different story.
This particular one they use to attract good things, love, and success good hunting and in general to bring luck and prosperity.

Always good to use Rapé Sacred Snuff with a positive intention set in your mind.
