OUR NUKINI RAPES (Hapi, hape, Rapay, ‘ha-peh’) We are proud to offer a high-quality product that comes directly from the Nukini tribe. Francisca Nuquini is unsure of how old she is, however as an elder of the tribe, she says that she has been gathering and preparing medicinal plants for as long as she can remember. A humble and gentle woman, she speaks slow and intentionally. However, when speaking of her medicines, her face lights up with a warm smile and her sweet laughter fills the space. During the weeks that we spent with Francisca, she shared with us the ancient secrets passed down to her from her Grandmother about how to prepare the best product. She tells that the power is in the songs she sings to the plants before harvesting them for medicine and the special manner in which each part of the plant is respected and cared for throughout the entire preparation process. According to Francisca, there are three types of these products: aromatic, medicinal and energizers. With a loving smile on her face, she said the quantity of each plant in the mixtures is a secret that is kept to the women in her village and passed on to the following generations.
THE NUKINI TRIBE
Along the lush green banks of the Rio Poa, lives a very special group of indigenous peoples, known as the Nukini. Their language comes from the Pano linguistic root. Found in the centre of Acre, Brazil this small tribe of 900 people live in the heart of the Amazon. This region also borders along Peru and Bolivia where dense tropical forests are filled with a floracopeia of medicinal and healing plants. The majority of the plants that are used for making medicines and handicrafts are gathered by the women of the tribe. This product, from the Nukini is known to be filled with feminine power as they are often formulated and prepared by the women of the tribe. Many of their blends contain a flowery, fresh odour and offers a wonderful sense of grounding and clarity.
NUKINI CAPIRONA CABRERANA (Cacylophyllum spruceanum + D.cabrerana)
This product is another one of our favourites. It is for the body, uplifts the spirit and invigorates the mind. The base of this natural product is made from the ash of the Mulateiro or Capirona tree. It is a Amazonian canopy tree that grows 30 meters high and produces an abundance of small, white aromatic flowers. The bark of the tree is used by various tribes people of South America. It has been known as a folkloric medicine and is used as an admixture to the Aya brew. Its properties consist of antifungal and antibacterial activity. It is high in phenols and organic acids as well as antioxidants. It is especially useful for the healing of wounds. The ash of the Capirona is mixed with the leaves of a commonly used plant, known as Chac runa, that grows throughout the Amazon jungle and is typically added to the Banisteriopsis caapi vine when making a brew.
