These Ashes, called “Cinza” in Brazil, are made from the Pau Peireira (Platycyamus regnellii) tree bark and wood. Ashes of this tree are referred to as Tsunu or Txunú. This is a Brazilian tree that belongs to the Fabaceae family. The ashes of the Txunú tree bark are often used for healing and curing purposes in Amazonian tribes and have a supportive role during Ayahuasca ceremonies. Mostly Tsunu is used before Ayahuasca Ceremony, enhancing the effects and opening the spirit for the ceremony, but also during intense ceremonial experiences, easing the vomiting and cleaning. Furthermore, the Txunú tree bark seems to facilitate healing by opening the heart and removing energy imbalances.
This Tsunu/Cinza is collected for us by a friend who was travelling the South Americas, visiting many remote tribes.
This exquisite ingredient is a crucial element of a powerful and balanced blend and should not be omitted in your own favorite rapé composition. Tsunu ashes mix excellently with any of the Tobacco powders. Furthermore, blending Tobacco with ashes increases the strength and absorption, making it exquisitely strong.
