The Kuntanawa (translated “the tribe of the Babassu palm or Babassu coconut”) people have always defended their spirituality as their principle of existence. They have always used plants to have straight contact with the beings of the forest and the spirits, like this they learned how to cure their tribe with their own traditional medicine and until today they maintain their practices. Their rapé has a very unique vibration, it has a strong spiritual connection that brings the attention inwards and calms down, so the healing and understanding can enter from the spirit of the medicine.
Sometimes they add other plants with cosmologic powers which bring luck, tranquility and other benefits, which are used in other ways as well to protect people and bless the hunters. They say it helps them to have strength, clarity and power to have the right attitude and to take the right decisions. Interesting is that it seems to be more active on the chest and in the heart region as in the head. It is typically mild, burns less in the nose and in the brain and many people consider it heart opening. It contains usually Tobacco and ashes (“Tsunu” Platycyamus regnellii) but some other recipes contain Samauma, Nissural, Jarina, Sanssara and others.
