Rapé Peregun

For spiritual and energetic cleansing this rapé Peregun is very helpful. It brings a lot of strength and balance to the mind. rapé Peregun uses a plant with the native name Peregun. This plant originally comes from Africa. Nowadays this is a plant many people have in their homes. Organic moi and the ashes of the Peregun leaves make up this one-of-a-kind Rapé.

For ash production, Only about twenty percent of the weight remains when burning bark for regular rapé. With Peregun that percentage is much lower. Making ash from Peregun requires a lot of dried leaves and is more work. Not many people make this type of rapé and therefore it’s considered a rare variety. It has a very particular smell to it and is a medium/strong-strength snuff.
I am quite sure that its traditional use and function in various Afro-Brazilian cultures is the reason it has found its way to become part of this rapé.

Peregun is much used in various Afro-Brazilian cultures.  It has a strong focus on the energy of the African Orixa Ogun. It’s a force of nature connected to iron and rocks. “Ogun is the winner of all and any battle”.
Peregun is used for its spiritual and energetic cleansing properties in Afro-Brazilian cultures like Umbanda and Candomblé.  There, Peregun also plays an important role in various initiation rites.

“One of the oldest leaves is the “Pèrègún”, which is used in the great majority of rituals to the Òrìsás. The myth says: Pèrègún witnessed the growth of humanity. It will always bring us luck. Pèrègún holds our luck, holds his prey on the day of hunting, and thus, feeds his children. Pèrègún protects us from our opponents and makes us harmonize with our fellow men” (source).
