10 - Apurina Rapé
Sun Dried Herbs : Awiri and others
Strength : Gentle
The classic green Rapé of the Apurinã people is made with Awiry, a native Amazonian tobacco that grows in the river beds which is only found in the dry season. It is considered a live or raw Rapé, where the leaves are not fermented as is done in common rapé tobacco. There is no ash, only Awiry leaves, which are dried in the sun and then ground. This is a unique medicine and is eferred to as a Rapé of Light. Apurina Awiri has a flowery scent and smells like being in the middle of the jungle. Very opening and deeply subtle. Awiry is traditionally inhaled through a straight tube, a unique snuffing style that differs from most Sacred Snuff varieties that are blown up the nose. (Though it can be blown through a kuripe or tepi).
