Rapé Murici Cumaru

Rapé Murici Cumaru is a mixture of Cumaru bark ash (Dipteryx odorata), ashes of the Murici tree bark (Byrsonima Crassifolia) and Mói. Mói is well known in Brazil for its unique Aroma.
The Indians say that Murici (Byrsonima Crassifolia) has a strong but feminine energy that specifically works on the higher chakras. Cumaru is strong but also rough and does its work in the lower chakras. The combination of Murici and Cumaru gives a full chakra cleansing.

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’s 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 snuffs.
