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

Known uses

Hermione Granger used this as a protective spell on the campsite she shared with Harry Potter and Ron Weasley in 1997. [1]

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)[2]. Hexia is simply a Latinisation of the word "hex". Altogether, this may be taken to mean something akin to "safe from hexes"
