Chill Out: How To Put Someone On Ice With Elemental Magic

Often when a problem or a person in your life is causing trouble the witch’s first line of defense is banishing. You don’t necessarily want to cause harm but you also can’t take the extra stress in your life! But what do you do when you want something a little gentler than banishing? Banishing does tend to be a fairly permanent solution, if you want something gone from your life that’s the way to do it!

Sometimes gone isn’t quite what we’re looking for though. On occasions where perhaps you care about the person in question and want to keep them in your life or when a problem does need your attention but you just can’t handle it right this second, I’ve got you covered.

Everyone gets overwhelmed sometimes, this spell is a way to hit pause on the things in your life that you just can’t deal with at the moment. It’s way to give yourself a little space from someone, to give yourself a little more time to make a decision or find a solution and make a little more room when you’ve just got too much on your plate. 

An Elemental Spell To Put Someone On Ice

You Will Need:

  • A small container that can be sealed (not glass)
  • Water
  • 3 Fresh mint leaves (not dried)
  • A slip of paper
  • A blue pen or marker
  • Two sewing pins

Begin by pinpointing exactly what you need put on ice. Is it a person? A particular conversation? A decision that needs to be made? Be specific!

Write this target out on the paper in blue ink. If you like you can draw a circle or square around the target to keep it contained. Take one of the mint leaves and roll it up inside of the paper, roll this as tightly as you can. Wrap the two remaining mint leaves around the outside (either one on each end or on top of each other if your paper is very small) and secure them by piercing the leaves and the paper with both needles, crossing the needles so they form an X.

Fill your container with water and place the scroll and needles into it. Seal the top and bury it in your freezer. Place it all the way in the back on the very bottom and leave it there. If you live in a very cold climate where it’s likely to stay below freezing for the foreseeable future you can also place the container in the back of your property and allow it to freeze there. Be aware that when the ice thaws so will the spell though!

When you’re ready to deal with the person or problem in question you’ll need to thaw the ice completely, remove the scroll, allow it to dry out and burn it. Keep in mind, this is not a permanent solution! Often people who have been put on ice for a very long time will simply leave and a problem that needs a solution immediately may not get as much of a break with this method as you’d like. This is a way to give yourself a little breathing room while you handle the immediate problems in your life, not a way to put off solving your problems forever!

  1. Thank you. A far better option than some of the alternatives. I was wondering if there is any incantation while rolling the scroll or is it purely visual and intent?
    Be blessed.. Diana

  2. I will be using this spell with my daughter to make the vile kid who is picking in her back off. It will be my daughter’s first casting.
