If disharmony, negativity, or darker energies have transpired in a particular environment, garlic can be used—in conjunction with salt, and/or the Banishing Ritual of the Lesser Pentagram, or by itself—to help cleanse the environment of residual negative astral entities and energies in order to return the area to a “neutral vibration.”

According to Ra, “no service-to-self astral form will accept coexistence with the cut garlic.”
