Rapé Rupusuti is made with organic tobacco, Tsunu ashes and a herb called Rupusuti and is a Snuff from the Shawadawa tribe in Acre Brazil.
Rupusuti is a medicine that cleans the veins and pores. According to its maker when you use this medicine it makes you sweat a lot and it cleans the toxins that make you feel bad from the body. Rupusuti is traditionally used to heal hypertension. A powerful blend that has an earthy effect on the body. By its heating effect, it really makes you present in the body and connects to the ground.

About the Tribe

Shawadawa (also known as Arara del Acre, shawandaua, Shawanaua, Shawanauá, Shaonahua or Shaodawa) is an indigenous group that inhabits the southwest of the Brazilian state of Acre. This tribe came in to contact with western “civilization” only at the beginning of the 20th century. The entire tribe currently consists of only 550 souls. Shawã means Macaws and Dawa means family, so they are the Macaw family.

Today, the main objective of the Shawadawa people is to protect their lands, their forest, where all our natural medicines are present. They are also always looking to save and maintain their culture, the teachings of their ancestors.

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 Rapé Rupusiti and all other 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.
