Ilex guayusa

Leaves of Ilex guayusa


Pharmacological constituents: xanthines ( including caffeine) , theobromine, and L- theanine. ( to name a few )


Medicinal properties and applications: anti-acid, indigestion, stomach and bile related ailments; mental strength, both energizing and relaxing.(Heaven, Charing 2006 60)


                   Here at Botanical Guides.com I've made it my mission to introduce and discuss rarely mentioned oneirogenic plants to the public. My pages are meant to provide new and accurate information on these sacred plant allys, instead of the same paraphrased content you see all over the internet time and time again. If you're tired of reading the same reworded information on the same plants over and over, then you've come to the right place.


It's scientific name is Ilex guayusa, but it's commonly known as Guayusa. It's closely related to Yerba Mate ( Ilex paraguariensis ), as indicated by the scientific name. Some believe Yerba Mate to also be an oneirogen. Guayusa has a reputation by the Amazonian medicine peoples ( shamans ) as being an oneirogen capable of assisting in the induction of lucid dreams.(Heaven, Charing 2006 60) A lucid dream is when you're aware of the fact that you're dreaming, while it's happening.


According to Amazonian belief, it's known as the "night watchman's plant", because they believe that while you're sleeping you still have an awareness of your outer physical surroundings.(Heaven, Charing 2006 60) These beliefs are very interesting, and the properties this plant is believed to induce are very unique when it comes to plant based oneirogens. Guayusa has many medicinal applications as well. The phytochemicals that it produces are the pharmacological mechanisms behind its action. To the shamans though, there is much more to plants and their abilities.


In order to get the most out of Guayusa, I have the following suggestions. When making a tea, add a drop of oil to the mixture to prevent it from boiling over. Cover it with a lid, bring it to a boil, and then immediately reduce the heat to a simmer. Allow it to cook for at least 30 minutes while covered. This will prevent volatile constituents from evaporating, which ultimately preserves the potency. You can also add a small amount of high proof liquor like everclear. This helps extract non-polar compounds into the water. Finally, you can make infusions or a tincture out of it by soaking it in everclear for at least one month. Store it in a cool, dark place to protect the potency.


Infusions are combinations of plant allys intended to work together symbiotically. The best way to get to know the properties of plants like Guayusa is to use your own inner awareness and intuition. Pay attention to how you feel and what's happening inside your spirit and body after consuming them. Don't rely on what you read to learn new things about these ethnobotanicals. In time, you'll learn many new things, and acquire an intuitive sense as to which plants work well together. From there, you can master your own infusions, and gain new levels of internal insight, where you can explore amazing dream-scapes, and master the art of lucid dreaming.


Pleasant journeys everyone.
