Garlic Protection Spell

Here is an amazing protection spell my wonderfully talented friend Caitlin created. When I first visited her house I saw in her room a clove of garlic. I asked her what that was for and she said it was for protection in her room. Her roommates at the time were a pain in the behind so she felt the need to add some protection (which couldn't hurt anyone). I asked her if I could post this to my blog for others to see it. She said I could but I would ask that you honor her and do not publish this as your own!
Her instructions were:

Say the words below over your clove of garlic and visualize a ring of protection around your home, then use the garlic to draw pentacles on the walls, floor, and ceiling going clockwise. Thank the garlic and place it above the door. You can use candles or whatever you want for the blessing, and maybe sprinkle salt on the garlic after you have placed it to strengthen the grounding. If you want your room to be secure, maybe do this twice, once for the house and once especially for your room.

Clove of garlic
grown in earth
a ring of protection
now give birth

bless this space
within and without
keep all here safe
without a doubt

keep out bad energy
but save the good
and ground out the excess
so things run as they should

suffer no danger
to enter these walls
and keep us all safe
from snares and pitfalls

with good for all
and harm for none
by earth and living herb
this spell is now done

Thank you so much Caitlin! And blessings to everyone who uses the spell. It has been a comfort for me since I felt betrayed by people who visited my home!

Blessed be!

very nice! I keep thinking I need to grow some garlic in my garden. The picture of the garlic wreath is inspiring me!

Yes. I am growing garlic in my garden this year as well as onions and shalos, but I have to say I am most excited about the garlic!
I do love the wreath. I knew I had to include that pic when I saw it!

Blessing and protection is always a good thing. I love symbolism, it creates a connection of mind and spirit.

Garlic itself is protected by layers of, what I like to call "garlic parchment". When you uncover the garlic pod, you are greeted by a strong aroma, garlic is awesome.
