« Topic Start: September 20, 2007, 06:42:03 pm »

I recently came across Bat's Head Root (also called Goat's Head, Devil's Head, and Bulls' Head Root). I  had no trouble finding uses for it, however, I can find nothing on what it actually is other than "a root from Mexico."

It really doesn't look like a root to me, more like a pod. Does anyone know anything about what type of plant this is and if it really is a root?

Any information would be helpful.

Wow! Thanks!  That looks very close to the ones I saw, I am sure it is the same thing. The ones I saw were allegedly from Mexico, but who knows?  They were supposed to be a spell enhancer or talisman for goodluck. Looks like they are a pod, not a root, as I suspected.

That gives me a lot to go on, you made my night!

Oddly, nearly all the sites I found early on in the search did say "from Mexico"--but I kept digging, and then changed the search from "bat head" to "goat's head botanical" and wound up with that.

Good luck!

Ah, you are far more clever than I in your searches!  I wouldn't have thought of that.

I believe that goes along with the "age and treachery" portion of the saying... LOL Tricksy old woman, I can be.

Yep, me too, I am hoping there will be a way to attach it to a beaded cord.

I personally favor the phrasing, "age and cunning".  IMO, it's also a better description of your role in this thread.

I shall defer to your wisdom. I do tend more toward cunning than treachery. Mostly. Sometimes. In this thread anyway, as you say...

Everything I've found on it says it's a root from a plant from Mexico.  I can't find anything that says WHAT plant it's from though. Sad
