Nukini is prepared only by women of the tribe. It contains ashes from the bark of a sacred Tsunu tree and shamanic tobacco Mapacho. The women sing sacred songs while grinding these two herbs. They also add other herbs that together form part of the secret recipe. Thanks to this process, they create a beautifully fragrant Rapé that has a fine, feminine and uplifting energy.
We also pack our Rapé into unbreakable glass. We choose dark blue glass to keep Rapé fresh for as long as possible. PS: We like to recycle our bottles and send them back into circulation.

Nukini, is made exclusively by women of the tribe. It contains the ashes of the bark of the sacred Tsunu tree and the shamanic Mapacho. These two herbs crush women while singing sacred songs and they also add other plants from secret recipes. Thanks to this, we get a beautifully fragrant Rapé, which carries with it a gentle, feminine, uplifting energy.
The recipes for specific rapes are completely secret, and in every Huni Kuin village, these recipes are passed on through the tribes and are perceived as sacred. This means that completely accurate content cannot be learned.
However, what we know about this Nukini Tsunu rapé is that the main ingredients are the sacred Mapacho and the ash from the bark of the sacred Tsunu tree (Platycyamus regnellii).
Nukini is a tribe that is part of the Huni Kuin community. This Nukini Tsunu rapé is largely made by women of the Nukini tribe. And almost all the rapese that come from this tribe are female works. Aunt’s sacred medicine is made directly in Brazil, the Acré region.
Rapé has a rather feminine character, it awakens and brings cleansing energy. The Indians also say it balances energy in the body. What suggests to us its strong spiritual power and caring feminine energy is that in the Amazon herbal tradition, Tsunu is used to help with migraines, flu, fever and indigestion.
