Yawanawa Mulateiro

Yawanawa Mulateiro

Rapé Yawanawa Mulateiro, is a blend consisting of Mulaterio and Tsunu tree ashes, intertwined with potent mopacho. Profoundly purifying, highly spiritual, this blend beckons a connection with nature and the quest to discover oneself. It moves with a compelling force, often perceived as feminine, but not as a gentle mother; rather, it is the untamed, wild essence of a woman.

We highly recommend pairing Rapé Yawanawa Mulateiro with Rapé Cabolco Croa Parica Extra for the purpose of healing the relationship between our inner animus and anima, the masculine and feminine within us, the influences from our fathers and mothers.

The Tsunu tree is often mistaken for Pau Pereira. These are not the same plants, though they are sometimes referred to by the same name in various regions and tribes where plants with similar properties share identical names. It’s actually quite challenging to identify what Tsunu truly is; only the shamans can determine which trees belong to this species and are suitable for blending with Rapé. Tsunu imparts an elevated and purifying atmosphere, harmonizing the energetic body. Like the sacred mapacho tobacco, it grounds deeply, bringing one back to the present moment, cleansing both body and spirit. It is often used to intensify the effects of Rapé and the plants used to create the blend.

MULATEIRO (Calycophyllum spruceanum)

Mulateiro, Mulatillo, Pau-Mulato – these are the names of the flowering Calycophyllum spruceanum tree native to the Amazon rainforest. One of the most characteristic features of the Mulateiro tree is its unique pinkish-gray bark that astoundingly sheds in layers. Indigenous tribes residing in the jungle have long utilized this plant for its spiritual and medicinal properties. It is applied medicinally for various skin conditions, acting as an anti-inflammatory and antifungal agent. It aids in alleviating stomach pain.

Some Amazonian tribes, including the Yawanawa, regard this tree as sacred, and its presence is considered a blessing. The shedding bark of the Mulateiro tree symbolizes the shedding of old negative energy or illnesses. Certain ceremonies involve applying the bark to the body or using it in protective and purifying smoke rituals.

The Mulateiro tree shares its spiritual energy with Rapé Yawanawa Mulateiro, infusing this blend with deep spiritual character and supporting a connection with nature, including one’s inner nature.


Rapé Yawanawa Mulateiro is exceptionally spiritual, assisting in connecting with primal wildness and intuitive perception, in connecting with nature, including one’s own nature. It is colloquially said to be very “feminine,” but what does that mean? Labeling things as “feminine” or “masculine” helps us understand their general energy, tendencies, or other archetypal associations.

In this context, “femininity” signifies liberation, the stimulation of the center of emotions, intuition, primal power, listening (more than speaking), experiencing and exploring (more than solving), surrendering and flowing with the river (more than directing or leading). It supports the sacral chakra (where we give, receive, and store life energy, a place of pleasure, where we contemplate our passions, what brings us joy, what we love to do, and how to manifest it), the heart chakra (love, unconditional love, sensitivity to beauty, a willingness to help, a gentle disposition, harmonious relationships, forgiveness, healing, the ability to give and receive joyfully), and the third eye chakra (intuition, clear hunches, access to universal knowledge, contact with the subconscious, a developed imagination, dreaming, inspirations, clarity of life’s path).

These are the very areas that Rapé Yawanawa Mulateiro nurtures and fosters in personal development. Hence, despite its colloquial femininity, we recommend it to anyone who wishes to work with these energies.

Additionally, along with Rapé Yawanawa Mulateiro, we have prepared another “extra” application:

(With a special nod to those who ask for “something masculine and something feminine…” 😉)

Just as in nature, masculinity has its feminine counterpart, Rapé Yawanawa Mulateiro pairs with the strongly masculine Rapé Cabolco Croa Parica Extra, representing the opposite, “masculine” side of the energetic spectrum.

You may use them with ease – always at your side – to enhance your connection with emotions, sexuality, intuition, or action, grounding, and the material world. There are days when a bit of extra energy for action would come in handy, right? And there are situations where it’s challenging to understand what’s happening within us, aren’t there? These are the moments when you can reach for one of these two rapé blends – Cabolco Croa Parica Extra and Yawanawa Mulateiro.

Simultaneously, you can delve deeply into this pairing. These two Rapé blends – Yawanawa Mulateiro and Cabolco Croa Parica Extra – stand opposite to each other, like Eve and Adam, like yin and yang, like… In different terminology, they help in the work between the inner anima and animus, the inner mother and father. We learn many things from our parents during childhood. Regardless of how good our childhoods were, each of us has experiences and processes to go through to become our “own” person. Understanding and experiencing these processes (whether logically, emotionally, or spiritually) are essential in the process of personal growth, liberation, and also – building relationships with others.. These processes can be strongly supported by deep meditative work with this pair of Rapé – Yawanawa Mulateiro and Cabolco Croa Parica Extra.

However, remember to delve only as deeply as you are ready for at the given moment.


In the Pano language, “yawa” means “white-lipped peccary” (a type of wild pig), and “nawa” means “human” (in some translations, it’s “white-winged” or “white-bearded peccary”). The Yawanawa tribe considers the peccary their symbol because, like these animals, they are a close-knit family that has lived together for time immemorial. Presently, they number around 1200 individuals and inhabit the area along the Gregorio River. They share this territory with the Katugina tribe, and to a large extent, members of these two tribes intermingle, with many individuals from one tribe forming marital unions with people from the other. They were the first tribe in which a woman became a shaman (in 2006). The Yawanawa have a profound belief in the power of Rapé, which they call “Rume.” Legend has it that Rapé came to them after the death of their first shaman. After his funeral, extraordinary plants grew on his grave, and the wisest person in the village decided to dry them and crush them into powder. Later, they started consuming them in various ways and discovered their healing properties. That’s how Rapé medicine came to be.
