Chitraka
Chitraka (Plumbago zeylanica) is a ayurvedic herb

Chitraka means the ‘spotted one’, perhaps referring to its namesake, the spotted leopard, who speedily catches its prey just as chitraka rapidly cures diseases. It is also known as agni meaning ‘fire’ or jvala meaning ‘flame’. It is a very hot-natured herb and should be used sparingly. It strongly increases the digestive fire.
