Botanical Name: Tribulus terrestris
Tribulus fruits are the tiny, spiked burs from a hardy, aggressive vine in the caltrop family. These small fruits look very much like goat’s heads on the vine. Tribulus fruit has been used medicinally in Ayurveda and Traditional Chinese Medicine for centuries. It is most well-known for its use as an aphrodisiac, and as such it can be used in spells to encourage physical attraction and lust. The woody, aggressive spikes on tribulus fruits also make it suited to workings for defense, protection, and cursing. Tribulus fruits can be added to sachets (be mindful of the spikes) or spell bottles and added to teas and baths.
