Rapé Yunu

Rapé Yunu is a rather unknown type of Snuff from the Kuntanawa tribe. Yunu is a tree that grows in the Kuntanawa’s habitat. The scientific name of Yunu is still unknown and in this way still keeps a bit of the tribe’s secrets.

Dried and pulverized Yunu leaf Moi and Tsunu ash make up the composition of this Rapé. The Kuntanawa say Yunu helps against depression and it also helps to clear negative energies. Rapé Yunu has an fresh energy. It has some similarities with mint but is still completely different.

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.

About the Kuntanawa Tribe

The Kuntanawa people (known as “the tribe of the babassu Palm or Babassu coconut”) has always defended their spiritual tradition as their principle of existence.
They have always used plants that connect with the beings of the forest and the spirits. Thus learned how to heal the tribe with traditional medicine and to this day they keep their practices.

Handling & Sorting

I sieve this Rapé Yunu 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
