Garlic is a symbol of courage and strength. As one of the most potent natural antibacterials it has always been a positive omen, alleged to protect from demons (i.e. infection). It is perhaps most well-known as a supernatural remedy thanks to Bram Stoker's Dracula, in which Dr. Van Helsing adorns a victim's entire room with it to try and prevent the Count's return.
