Snuff and horn handicraft

There are many Kashubian legends about the origin of snuff, but in reality the first ones to discover the powdered tobacco were the Native Americans.The discoverers of the New World brought it to Europe.

Snuff is made of tobacco with additives such as cherry leaves, broad bean pods, horse-radish, dried plums, juniper, amber and different herbs.It is a smokeless, inhalable tobacco.According to Kashubians, snuff, used reasonably, has medicinal properties – cures cold, boosts potency, helps in breathing, refreshes and... gives power and might, clears the mind or even sharpens the sight.Besides, it cheers up, helps to get rid of sadness, is a symbol of friendship and a good conversation starter.

 

Overdosing may cause damage to mucous membrane, throat and vocal cords problems (hoarseness).It should not be used by people with heart conditions.

Snuff is an adult-only product!

To store snuff a special snuff box is needed.These can be made from different materials:Wood, clay, porcelain, glass, bark, paper, mother-of-pearl, metal, ivory, canvas and the most popular material in Kashubia - horn.Some snuff boxes are silver- and gold-plated or decorated with gemstones, which makes them real works of art.
