Kuntanawa Rapé Snuff


This tribe lives way up the Jurua river close to the Peruvian border, on the river Tejos to be exact. The tejos is a side river of the Jurua. The Rapé is prepared with a base of local, organically grown Tobacco and the ashes of Tsunu tree. The special character of this Rapé comes from the herb Lourinho that gives it a pleasant fresh smell. Lourinho is used for spiritual cleansing. Another local herb from the region used in this particular blend is Kapaxanba which is said to work great for headaches.
