Our famous green rappeh* [hapé] of the Apurina tribe is made from a medicinal plant called awiry, which gives it its characteristic color. There is no use of ashes nor tobacco in this rappeh, only awiry. The leaves of this sacred plant are simply dried, ground, and sifted to the finest green powder with joy and prayers. The apurina are famous for their green Rappeh, which is unique and completely different from the other tribes in the region. The awiry is considered by some to be a type of wild tobacco, as it has similar effects to tobacco. It grows on the banks of the rivers and can only be harvested at certain times during the dry season of the year. When the river grows in the rainy season, the area where the awiry grows remains flooded under water. Therefore, this snuff can only be made from one harvest of awiry.

All of our snuff medicine is made with intentional prayers and in small batches. Most of all, a labor of love. Our containers are all the same sizes offered in small, medium and large of glass, airtight bottles. The small containers weigh between 2.3 to 3 grams* (a pea size of 15 to 20 servings). The medium weighs about a quarter of an ounce, between 7.5 to 8 grams, and the large weighs about a half of an ounce, between 13.5 to 15 grams*.

* Each bottle is filled at the same level. The variance in weight is due to the different densities within each medicine as each ingredient influences the weight differently.

Our labor is love infused. With that, we work by hand, heart, and minds. You may also notice a difference in our labels, as we still use our previous design labels.
