Wait, what is guarana seed extract, you ask? The short answer is it is a Brazilian plant native to the Amazon basin, and it’s a climbing plant prized for its fruit. Guarana extract is made by processing the seeds into a powder. Amazonian tribes have used guarana for centuries for its therapeutic properties. It contains an impressive range of stimulants, such as caffeine, theophylline and theobromine. Guarana also boasts antioxidants, such as tannins, saponins and catechins.
The long of it is a plethora of benefits! Here are just a few of the ones gained from using guarana seed extract, especially when it is infused with essential oils.
1. Rich in Antioxidants
Guarana contains caffeine, theobromine, tannins, saponins, catechins and other compounds that have antioxidant properties.
2. Can Reduce Fatigue and Improve Focus
Guarana is rich in caffeine, which can reduce fatigue and improve focus. Caffeine blocks the effects of adenosine, a compound that makes you feel drowsy and helps your brain relax.
3. May Help You Learn Better
4. May Promote Weight Loss
Guarana contains caffeine, which may aid weight loss by boosting metabolism. It has also been found to suppress genes that aid fat cell production and promote genes that slow it down.
5. May Boost Heart Health
Guarana may aid heart health by improving blood flow and preventing blood clots. It can also decrease the oxidation of “bad” LDL cholesterol
6. May Provide Pain Relief
Historically, guarana was used by Amazonian tribes as a pain reliever. The caffeine in guarana may provide pain relief by blocking adenosine receptors, which are involved in stimulating feelings of pain.

Studies have found that guarana may combat oxidative stress, which is linked to age-related eye disorders.
