During the 1988–1989 school year, Patricia Rakepick, the Defence Against the Dark Arts Professor for that academic year, taught this charm to her fifth-year DADA students, as something useful and practical to learn, considering the poor teaching that they had received from previous Professors.
In 1997, during their Horcrux hunt, Hermione Granger used this protective charm to seal off an area in the Forest of Dean where she, Ronald Weasley and Harry Potter were staying, to protect them from any dark forces that might have harmed them there, along with other protective charms. Harry Potter cast this spell before he and Hermione visited Bathilda Bagshot.
In 1998, Hermione performed this spell again to protect her, Ron and Harry in a field somewhere in Devon, after they disapparated away from the Lovegood House, where they were attacked by Death Eaters.
After the trio retrieved Hufflepuff's Cup from Gringotts Harry cast this spell on an embankment before breaking into Hogsmeade.
- "Though Harry could have happily lain down and slept, he staggered to his feet, drew out his wand, and started casting the usual protective spells around them."

Behind the scenes
- It remains uncertain if Salvio hexia is the incantation for a spell called hex-deflection, or if it is merely one spell that falls under this branch.
