Yawanawá Esperança

Rapé Yawanawá Esperança is a strongly feminine variety, very stimulating thanks to its high proportion of ash. The ash used is from Tsunu, the favorite of the Yawanawá to make their Rapé.

Rapé Yawanawá Esperanza strengthens spiritual work, provides concentration and focus for the mind, has relaxing properties, dissipates tiredness and provides a good mood.

The name of this snuff refers to Nova Esperança, the largest town of the Yawanawá.
