Rapé Parika Katukina

This Rapé Parika Katukina is a bit different from other Parika Rapé I know of. Besides the Parika ashes and nice moi, the Katukina added a bit of eucalyptus to it. The finely grounded leaves add a slight aroma to this snuff. Not too much to be called an aromatic snuff but just enough to give you the warm buzz of this fragrant eucalyptus.

Parika Rapé (Schizolobium amazonicum) is well-known for its power and antibacterial ingredients.
Parika ashes have a high vibration and help with the clearing of negative and stuck energies in the body and mind.

About the Tribe

The Katukina or Catuquina are an indigenous group who live in southwestern Brazil at the border of the Amazonas and Acre. They are the traditional carriers of rapé knowledge in the Amazonian region. They number approximately 450 individuals. Katukina people call themselves: People of heaven, people of the sun, and people of the otter.

Five linguistically distinct but geographically proximate indigenous groups, Katukina or Catuquina, Katokina, Katukena, Katukino, is what we now call the Katukina. The Katukina are a tribe that is very connected to the usage of sacred plants. They consider themselves as the first tribe to receive the Kambo medicine straight from the frog. They still carry a vast knowledge about plants and the spirit of the world. Their Rapé is strong and deep, and it carries the wild and powerful spirit of the jungle.

Handling & Sorting

I sieve this Rapé Parika Katukina and all other snuff coming from my shop through a 120-micron high-grade stainless steel mesh. I also store the Rapé stock dry and in vacuum containers to prolong freshness and quality.

This results in.

  • an extremely fine powder.
  • a guaranteed consistent fineness
  • optimal absorption of the snuff
