Rapé Jarina

This rapé Jarina is from the Kuntanawa tribe tradition. They make it with organic cultured Brazilian Sabiá and ashes from a tree called Sapota. What gives this special snuff its name is the extra edition of the dried and pulverized flowers of the Jarina palm tree. This palm tree (Phytelephas macrocarpa) usage s deeply rooted in the Kuntanawa tradition.

The Jarina palm tree is many times found growing next proximity to the Rainha (queen) leaf plants that are used in the Ayahuasca brew. It’s not uncommon that different parts of Jarina’s palm are used in the sacred brew.

The Jarina pulverized flowers in this snuff work primarily on the third eye chakra and crown chakra.

Spirituals Aspects about Folr de Jarina

White gold from the forest, a mysterious richness that translates into clarity of vision. Superior vision, fed by trust in life, today and tomorrow. Firmness in the kingdom, pillars of the hidden residence of the great divine mother.
I move myself in the forest in the four directions. I am certain of the gift of which I am the protectress. Those who meet me know a tressure. The light of awareness in the white of my gold.

Another use of Jarina

In many forms of handicraft, Indigenous people use Jarina palm tree seeds. Many people compare the seeds to animal ivory. They have a similar color and luster. The main difference is its lower hardness and density. Jarina seeds are commonly known as vegetable ivory and are largely used in the manufacturing of bio-jewels and artifacts.

Kuntanawa Rapé

The Rapé produced by Kuntanawa has a unique vibration.  A strong spiritual connection that brings presence and calm. Sometimes, they add other plants with cosmological forces that bring us luck, tranquility, and other benefits. They are commonly used in other ways to provide protection or blessings.

They say that such plants bring us strength and clarity to have correct attitudes and take the right decisions. The interesting thing is that the Kuntanwa Rapé seems to be more active in the region of the chest and heart than the head. Being typically mild, it burns less.
Many people consider this Rapé an opener of the heart. It contains arapiraca and ash “Tsunu” (Platycyamus regnellii). Some other recipes may contain Samaúma, Nissural, Eric, Sanssara, and other plants.
