White gold from the forest, mysterious richness that translates into clarity of vision. Superior vision, fed by trust in life, today and tomorrow. Firmness in the kingdom, pillars of the hidden residence of the great divine mother. I move myself in the forest in the four directions. I am certain of the gift of which I am the protectress. Those who meet me know a tressure. The light of awareness in the white of my gold.

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.

I sieve this rapé Jarina and all other snuff 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.
