An Old-Fashioned Garlic Protection Spell
Once you’ve got all of the above things working on your behalf, if you still feel that you could use an extra dose of protection, I have personally always found that nothing protects as reliably or completely as good old-fashioned garlic.
For example, once you empower the garlic (whether it’s a clove, a head, a wreath or other arrangement, powder, or a supplement) in bright sunlight for at least five minutes (or by candlelight or fire if it’s nighttime or it’s cloudy out and you’re in a pinch), and infuse the garlic with your clear intention to protect you from all negativity and ill will, perform any of the following garlic protection practices according to your situation and desire.
Carry a clove of garlic as a protection amulet (I like to wrap one in cloth and safety-pin it under the front of my bra).
Hang a garlic wreath or arrangement on your front door or in a central location in your home.
Sprinkle garlic powder across your threshold or around the perimeter of your lot.
Take garlic supplements or cut a clove of garlic into small pieces and swallow them one at a time like pills to strengthen your personal energy field and keep negativity at bay.
Add fresh garlic or garlic powder to food. For extra-strength home protection, for each door to the outside, pierce a clove of garlic with two pins so that they are crossing each other, tie in a red cotton pouch with hemp twine, and hang on the outside of each door.
