Very finely sifted ashes of the Murici tree (Byrsonima crassifolia), from a Yawanawa "ash-maker". The Murici is an old traditional folk medicine plant, which is used in snuffs to clear energies that accumulate in the lower abdomen. 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 tobaccos. Furthermore, blending tobacco with Tsunu increases the strength and absorption, making it exquisitely strong.

The Murici tree (Byrsonima crassifolia) comes from the Malpigheaceae family and is an evergreen tree that is widely distributed in South and Central America and Mexico. Since pre-columbian times this sacred tree is traditionally use as a folk medicine for different purposes, including the treatment of coughs, gastrointestinal disorders, gynecological inflammations, skin infections (Heinrich et al. 1992; Leonti et al. 2001), and snakebites (Rastrelli et al. 1997). Moreover, experimental studies showed that this tree can exert strong antimicrobial (Martínez-Vázquez et al. 1999), anti spasmogenic (Béjar et al. 1993), and anti-inflammatory activities (Maldini et al. 2009).
