Freezer spells have become all the magical rage in recent years. They are an extremely effective form of magick, working quickly and succinctly. In addition, freezer spells are great for multiple intentions including bindings, to “pause” or put a situation on hold, to bring peace or even to stop a person in their tracks. Here we will dive into the history of freezer spells and why it’s okay for you to cast one when done mindfully. Plus we provide you with two freezer spells to try including a lemon freezer spell and a freezer binding spell. Let’s get our chill on.
A freezer spell is exactly how it sounds – a spell that utilizes the freezer in your home and its freezing capabilities. In recent years, they’ve become popular among the witchcraft community. So much so that you’ll even hear people say that doing a freezer spell is a “closed” tradition. We don’t believe that it is, if you truly make it your own and use your ingredients and words mindfully.
For those who say only a specific magical tradition can use freezer spells in their magick, this is what I say to them. Should I also stop using my stove or oven in my spell work? How about candles, are they a certain magic tradition too? The point here is there are some freezer spells that utilize techniques from the Hoodoo folk magic tradition including sour and sweetening jars. If you want to stay away from appropriating, simply leave those ingredients and methods out of your personal freezer magick.
There’s no doubt in my mind our ancestors who made magick, cast spells, and gave out remedies used what they hand on-hand. That includes any of the appliances or features of their home at their disposal. When I say our ancestors, I mean ALL of our ancestors. There were and are magical folk from every culture who have been casting powerful spells for centuries. But if they didn’t have a freezer, what did they have?
According to Swirl Freeze, the fact that ancient humans learned how to freeze food for preservation is just as important to humanity as the use of fire to cook it. For people who lived in colder climates, they first learned to preserve food by placing it directly on the ice. Gradually, there came icehouses, which were small buildings where ice was placed and food placed within to freeze it. Then ice boxes in
Freezer spells work in a few ways. Let’s break down the magical mechanics, shall we? First, the freezer essentially does one job – freezes things. And freezing = preservation. But when we think of various intentions for spells, this is when the freezer’s MAGICAL abilities vary. For example, let’s say you’re working at a job that has become dangerous. A co-worker has made it a hostile environment, and you are even sometimes fearful for your life. You’ve gone to the boss but nothing has been done. So you decide to do a freezer binding spell on this coworker. It will work, but you have to consider the length of time you plan to keep the spell going AND how long you plan to keep the binding spell in the freezer.
Next, let’s just say you are at a point in life where something is moving too fast for your liking. And is causing you significant stress, anxiety, or pain. Is there a way to slow the process down or even stop it in its tracks? Yes…freezer spells are perfect to do this magical job, as well. And when you’re ready to allow the natural time to flow again, you remove the spell from the freezer and let it “defrost”. Think of it like this – whatever you want to freeze in place or PRESERVE, a freezer spell will be powerful.
Most of my research on freezer spells prior to writing this article yielded the same intention – to bind a person or situation. This is probably the most popular intention for a freezer spell but definitely not the only way a freezer can be utilized in one’s magical practice. There are a number of intentions, and more specifically when we use the freezer in place of ice spells another world is opened to us:
I guess at this point, it’s time for me to step in and talk about magical morals when it comes to casting freezer binding spells. You’ll hear a lot of people tell you when you mess with free will, you’re messing with something you shouldn’t. To leave these things to the Universe or gods to work out. But here’s the problem with that – sometimes the universe/gods expect US to protect ourselves. And if we’ve done everything we can in the physical but still feel threatened, we have the magical to help us through. So I say, if you feel that binding spells of any kind are against your morals, don’t do them. But if you feel the need to protect yourself or others, I won’t tell you what’s right or wrong.
I’m sure you’ve figured out the main 2 ingredients in freezer spells: water and the freezer itself. But don’t discount other intuitive ingredients like herbs, flowers, different containers, fruits, etc. And also experiment with different ways to use the freezer in your magick. The typical spell is to write the person’s name or situation on a piece of paper, then put that paper in water and freeze it. Simple but there’s SO many other things to use and ways to make magick with your freezer:
By now I guess you’ve figured out that when it comes to freezer spells and spell-work in general, your creativity and intuition is your limit.
In our Snow Spells article, we talk about all the magical things you can do with snow, ice and hail. If you or your ancestors come from a colder climate, you might feel drawn to use the icy elements in your magical workings. But what if you’ve relocated to a warmer climate and have no access to snow, ice or hail? Make your own with a little help from our friend, the freezer. You can even buy your own snow cone machine for fairly cheap and make your own snow for your spells.
Lemons have been used in many magical traditions for hundreds of years. They are linked to the moon, the feminine, and water and have an inherently purifying energy. They’re also used in spells to make a person leave you alone. Sort of like feeding someone lemons straight up – they’ll grimace and probably not want to try any more. So if you need something to get rid of a person who’s bothering you, you can freeze them out and send them off with this lemon freezer spell:
Sometimes an alarm on the house and a big dog isn’t enough to keep someone away. Sometimes we need a little magick to shield us from danger. This freezer binding spell works in a pinch…and it works WELL. It’s also effective if the person that needs the binding is hurting a loved one. You can do this spell for them, with their permission of course.
I’d like to put a lot of buzz words here but that would be too …September 15, 2023
