Known as Devil Pods, Devil Nuts, Devil’s Head, Bat Nuts, Goat Heads, Goat Nuts, Bull Nuts, Buffalo Nuts, Ling Nut, Lin Kok, Ling Kio Nut, Mustache nut or Singhada. This fascinating seed is from a species of Water Caltrop, Trapa Natans.
It’s spiky, demonic appearance is where it gets its name from. It is considered extremely powerful for driving away all types of evil influences, energies, spirits and vibrations. It’s said to deflect, ward and “scare” away malevolent forces or entities.
In Chinese culture, bats are considered lucky, so some consider this seed a good luck charm. The seed is said to resemble a bat; and because the word Bat in Chinese is similar to the word for Happiness, having this seed is said to be a very auspicious (lucky) charm to have in your possession.
Devil Pods are excellent to use in Spirit Jars, read more here: Spirit Jars for Magical Workings
So now the question is….how do you use it?
Here are some simple, effective ways to work with this impressive plant:

- Place on your window sills or above your doors to keep away evil from your home or business.
- Carry Devil Pods in a red flannel bag for strong protection wherever you go.
- Hang on your rearview mirror or keep in the glove compartment to repel unwanted vibrations or energy from yourself while driving.
- Place a Devil Pod next to any Double Action or Reversible Candle to protect you and the work you are doing.
For Good Luck and Road Opening
