Type

Spell

Hand Movement

Downwards movement with the wand, palm of the opposite hand held outwards

Effect

Protection from hexes (possibly)

Salvio Hexia is a protective spell whose effects are unclear, though — given the etymology — it appears to protect against hexes.

Known uses

Hermione Granger casted this protective spell on the campsite she shared with Harry Potter and Ron Weasley in 1997.[1]  Harry Potter would occasionally cast this spell during the horcrux hunt as well.[2][3]

Behind the scenes

Etymology

The first word Salvio could come from either of the Latin words salvare (to save/protect), salveo (to be well/in good health) or salvus (safe and sound)[4]. Hexia is simply a Latinisation of the word "hex". Altogether, this may be taken to mean something akin to "safe from hexes"
