More about Rapé Tsunu
Rapé (pronounced “ha-peh” or “rapay”) means "dust of the ancients" and it has been used for thousands of years by the indigenous tribes of the Amazon. Although the herbs vary from rapé to rapé, the main ingredient is always the powdered tobacco leaf of the Nicotiana Rustica. When used in combination with an intention, rapé can be a powerful tool for realizing our dreams.
About the ingredients
Tsunu is one of the oldest rapé blends and is known for its powerful effects. The Tsuni tree (Platycyamus regnelli) that grows in the Amazon is considered sacred by the population. When the bark is burned, several alkaloids are released and that's where the healing properties begin. Originally named by the Yawanawa tribe, Tsunu has a history in indigenous folk medicine as a cure for fever and an ingredient in the treatment of malaria.
How is Rapé Tsunu used and what are its effects?
The traditional way to use rapé is when someone else (usually a shaman) blows the powder into your nose with a tepi. However, you can also self-administer rapé with a v-shaped wooden pipe called kuripe. More information about rapé.
