Rapé Murici Cacao

This rapé murici cacao from the Kaxinawa tribe is a result from the result from their experiments with blending various ashes.

The Kaxinamwa Indians say that Murici has a strong but feminine energy that specifically works on the higher chakras. Together with a potent cacao ash, this blend brings a high capacity of endurance and liveliness, with the power of cleansing and purging.

Murici & Cacao ash

To make this snuff parts of the Murici tree (Byrsonima Crassifolia) are reduced and filtered cleaned to whitish ash. The Kaxinamwa Indians say that Murici has a strong but feminine energy that specifically works on the higher chakras.

The cacao ash comes from the trunk of the wild theobroma cacao tree.

Tribal Usage

The Kaxinawa tribe uses its Rapé for different purposes. For example, relief of physical pain and headaches and cleaning of sinuses. In Addition, the Kaxinawa apply Rapé for mental healing, mostly in combination with chanting.
Rapé connects the tribe with spirits of the jungle and – depending on the specific ingredients – it can cure, heighten concentration, improve hunting, or be a connector to the spirit of nature. The Kaxinawa like to experiment and use a wide range of ingredients for their rapé.
