So, what’s a good Pizza without good old Garlic Spice in it?
Isihaqa is the Nguni name for it.
Did you know that other than its use in adding a bit of zing to your tastebuds
Garlic has been used for purposes of Healing by Indigenous People-This World Over?
I’m gonna break it down and tell you what this herb does for your body, and then tell you what its spiritual purpose is as well.
Healing the body with Garlic
This Herb/Spice is classified as an anti-fungal, anti-inflammatory, anti-viral, and anti-bacterial entity in one.
When crushed,minced or chewed
Garlic produces a chemical known as Allicin and it does the following:

Spiritual Benefits of Garlic
Just for humour I’ll tell you that they say this herb keeps vampires away. Hang it in our living space and no vampires will catch you.
On a serious note now…
Garlic has a protective spirit.
People have worn garlic cloves as beads and the reason for this is to protect the aura from negative entities. It’s a good and quick tool to use when you don’t have time for much else.
In times of emotional turmoil or distress, keep a garlic clove close by, or simply wear garlic clove beads and you should be able to work on your issues without further negativity infiltrating in,for it is often during times of distress or turmoil that we also attract negativity and hence the African Notion of ‘isinyama’ or ‘bad aura’ that afflicts one unknowingly.
Please note that you should still contact or be seen by a medical practitioner in extreme cases. This is a general guide for minor physical conditions.
