Apurina

This special and rare – green Rapé comes from the Brazilian tribe of Apurinã. Apurinã produces this rapé from the Awiry plant, which is a form of wild-growing tobacco. Its leaves are dried and crushed into a very fine powder. This Rapé it contains no Mapacho or ashes. Since Awiry grows on the banks of the river, this can be Rapé produced only during the dry season, when the river level is low, and therefore it is usually in very limited quantities.

Apurina is used for a deep connection with sacred plants, the spirits of the forest and with Pacha Mama (Mother Earth). It helps to open the senses, gives clarity and can intensify your dreams. It's not Rapé designed for cleansing, like most other species rapé. Apurina is suitable for meditation and deep introspection, when you rather determine the strength and intensity of this rapé, according to your ability to open.

Awiry is considered a species of wild tabaku, it grows on the banks of rivers and can be harvested only at certain times of the year, because when the river rises in the rainy season, the area where Awiry grows is flooded.
