“‘These [garlic flowers] are medicines.’ Here Lucy made a wry face. ‘Nay, but they are not to take in a decoction or in nauseous form…’”

Van Helsing doesn't answer the obvious question: why not get Lucy to eat garlic? If she eats enough, there will be little need for wreaths and garlands of flowering garlic; the entire bedroom will become garlic-scented from her breath, and the Count will not be comfortable coming near her!

Could it be that the doctor who did not hesitate to give Lucy blood transfusions, decided not to feed her garlic because that would make her less feminine?
