The mocambo tree, also called jaguar tree, is a tree of the genus Theobroma, which also contains the better known cacao tree. Just like its nephew, the seeds of the mocambo tree are edible, high in calories and rich in protein and fiber. The seeds are also high in Omega 9 and contain caffeine. For our rapé, the seeds of the mocambo tree are crushed.
The passion flower (Passiflora incarnata) is native to southeastern North America, Central and South America and the Caribbean. The Indians of North America used the stem, leaves and flowers of the plant for nerve pain and restlessness. Nowadays passion flower is mainly used to improve sleep, in case of anxiety and as a sedative. After the leaves have been crushed and burned, the ashes can be added as a component in rapé.
