Garlic is an age-old natural remedy that has been used to ward off evil spirits for centuries. In order to get the full effect of garlic, eat at least one clove per day and take a tablespoon of honey with it. Some believe that you should wear garlic around your neck like a necklace, or carry some in your pocket.

Werewolves are the stuff of nightmares. They roam the forests on full moons, looking for unsuspecting prey to maul and kill. There’s little hope for a person who encounters one of these creatures: they have superhuman strength and speed that can’t be matched by any human, and they’re able to sense when their next meal is near thanks to their keen senses.

But there is something you can do about it! All you need is garlic – lots of garlic – because werewolves detest its strong smell. It might not be enough protection if the wolf catches your scent before you get close enough to him, but it will help keep them at bay while you find a way out or call in reinforcements. If all else fails, don’t forget silver is a must if you’re facing a werewolf!
