This Caboclo Rapé comes from a true Brazilian caboclo. This means from a man of mixed blood, half Indian half Brazilian. In the region he lives, he has a lot of contact with Kaxinawa Indians and many of them are his friends. All his lived near the forest and learned a lot about the various aspects of traditional shamanic healing.

This is a medium strength snuff. A nice clear and bright blend that is not overpowering.

Tepi and Kuripe

Traditionally Rapé is administered through a pipe made out of bamboo or bone. The Tepi is a blowpipe that you can use to administer another person. When receiving Rapé the other blows it through both nostrils. In general, the shape of the Tepi is straight, curved or V-shaped. A different form is self-administration. For this, you use a Kuripe. The Kuripe has a V- shape and connects the mouth to the nostril. In this case, you blow the Rapé to yourself.

Tepis receiving blessings from their creators

I sieve this Caboclo Rapé and all other snuff Rapé coming from my shop through a 120-micron high-grade stainless steel mesh. This makes an extremely fine powder. It’s labor-intensive but guarantees a consistent fineness, cleanness and optimal absorption of the Snuff. I store the Rapé stock dry and in vacuum containers to prolong freshness and quality.
