About Waxy

Waxy went through a deep transformational process. She took a year-long diet in the forest in preparation to follow her spiritual path. This diet she followed had many restrictions. She only drank water for a year. Her nutrition consisted mainly of the Muka plant and some other accompanying dietary plants. She pend her year-long isolated diet in the forest located spiritual center of her brother. There she was under the guidance of an elder Shaman. Waxy was one of the first Yawanawa women to complete the Muka diet. This is one of the most profound and important study diets of the spirituality of the Yawanawa.

In Waxy Yawanawa words.  “We, the Yawanawa take Rapé to have physical and spiritual balance. I, Waxy have great respect for rapé (rumé)”

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 Tsunu Waxy 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.
