A Nukini master outdid himself with this beautiful Nukini 7 Stars Rapé blend. It is fruity with fresh minty tones, powerful yet smooth. Its beautiful scent comes from a herb called Embaubinha (Cecropia lyratiloba), a creeper with a silvery leaf. Embaubinha has a very particular scent that is very distinctive from other refreshing herbs used in Rapé. Beautiful fruity tones that put a smile on your face. In general, they use herbs that lift the spirit and are used in other preparations for spiritual cleansing. Sometimes these herbs have natural analgesic properties and are beneficial for the respiratory system. The ash used is Tsunu. We found this works with its nice tone to open the throat chakra. It is a Rapé that helps in communication.
We gave it seven stars because its quality deserves it and because it takes you to the stars. In this case, the seven sisters, the Pleiades, the mythical home to our ancestors. Tribal people around the globe tell stories about their ancestors coming from the stars and many from the Seven Sisters, the Pleiades. We named this medicine in honor of this ancestral memory. We feel that communication works on many levels; the physical is just one of them. As Chief Biraci from the Yawanawa says, Rapé opens the communication with our ancestors. The silvery leaves of the Embuabinha reflect the light of the moon at night, remembering this connection between Earth and the heavens. Always a good meditation to try and remember where we came from, our lineage through the ages, our ancestry.
