About Samaúma/Kapok

Samaúma or Kapok (Ceiba pentandra) is a tree found in the Amazon. Is considered sacred to the ancient Maya and the people that inhabit the forests. Samaúma trees easily can reach a height of 70 meters and therefore it is one of the largest trees in the world flora. This tree can remove water from great depths of the Amazonian soil and not only bring it to fuel itself, but also to share with other species.

The giant of the forest

 

The natives consider it “the mother of all trees. Its roots are called sapobemba. These roots are used in the communication through the forest, which is done by tapping on them with a piece of wood. In addition, the tree presents medicinal properties and is considered by the people of the forest, a tree with magical powers, protecting even the remaining trees and the inhabitants of the forest. The bark is also used as an additive to some versions of  Ayahuasca.

Yawanawa rapé

The Yawanawa call their Rapé “Rume”. It contains mostly the ash of the bark of the Tsunu tree. They add the ash of the bark of the Txunú tree and a strong tobacco that resembles mapacho (Nicotiana rustica). This makes a special and very unique Rapé blend. The Amazonian tribes use the Tsunu tree bark often for healing and curing purposes. Rapé has a supportive role during ayahuasca ceremonies and often used before ayahuasca. It enhances the effects and the opening of the spirit for the ceremony.  But also during intense ceremonial experiences, it eases vomiting and cleaning.

“We mostly use rumê in our sacred ceremonies with UNI (our sacred drink, more commonly known as ayahuasca). But, rumê is also taken in the afternoon, before washing. The water cleans our body and spirit; it’s our favorite part of the day”.

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 Samaúma Rapé 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.
