Anecdotal: The spirit within Allium is invoked to address spiritual pain that has led to the loss of personal shields or life energy. It exorcises malevolent spirits believed responsible for interfering with visions, stealing songs or words, and impairing sacred connections with the voices of ancestors. Allium is a formidable incarnant for resolving endopsychic wounds. It can be bitten to break hexes, hung in the house or rubbed on utensils to expel spirits of disease and negativity. Allium is carried or hung in new homes for protection against malevolent spirits and theft. In the garden Allium protects against bad weather. Caution should be taken when storing Allium as it can remove the power stored in objects. If that power is positive that is undesirable, but if it is negative Allium is a valued asset in cleansing the object of its bad medicine. Allium has long been considered an aphrodisiac when both parties eat it together. It protects the wedding day against problems when carried by the bride and groom. Allium is thought to provide excellent protection for children when it is placed under their pillows and guards them against startling dreams.
