Tsunu Forte rapé is made by the Yawanawá tribe of Brazil and is the perfect rapé for ceremonial use.  Tsunu Forte rapé is quite a bit stronger than the Yawanawá Tsunu variety.  It is very nice to use this rapé during medicine ceremonies or prior to a meditation. 

Tsunu is very much about 'alignment', it is believed to balance the energies in the body, therefore 'unlocking blocked energies' and a pajé (or medicine man) would often choose Tsunu to 'ward off evil spirits'.

In the Amazonian herbal tradition, Tsunu is often chosen to help with a migraine, influenza, sinusitis, rhinitis, aid poor digestion, constipation and fever.

There are many folks selling pale imitations, but this is not one of them. Tsunu Forte rapé makes its way from the Yawanawá village, down the Gregório river and is sent directly to us by the tribe.
