Ice Box or Freezer Spells come primarily from the Hoodoo Magickal Tradition. According to ConjureDoctor.com.
Hoodoo (also known as rootwork) is Southern folk magic grounded in centuries of African American heritage within the southern United States. Hoodoo is often known by other names including: conjure, rootwork, root doctoring, laying tricks, working roots or doing the "work". It is important to note, that contrary to what some authors may write in their books, Hoodoo is NOT Voodoo (Vodou). Hoodoo blends together the magical technology of Congo slaves that were taken from Africa in the slave trade, combined with Native American herbal knowledge, bits of European folk magic and Jewish mysticism."
The Freezer Binding:
Basic: This popular method of binding is quick and easy. The name of the abuser is written on a piece of paper and frozen in a ziploc bag filled with water.
Extra Ingredients in the Water: In special cases other ingredients are added to the water including alum, vinegar or even urine.
Nine Names: Another method is to write the abuser's name on a piece of paper 9 times. The paper is then folded 9 times and wrapped with a black thread or yarn 9 times before it is frozen. For added "oomph" I put a pinch of salt and a pinch of alum on the paper before folding it up and wrapping it tightly with a black thread.
Garlic: Another method is to crush a glove of garlic with your fist while thinking of the abuser. Rub that glove of garlic on the paper with the names of the abuser 13 times pushing the clove away from you.
To Discourage Sexual Harassment: I put alum and salt in the water and if the binding is to discourage sexual harassment, I also put in 3 pinches of Salt Peter which traditionally is supposed to cause impotence.
Karma: If these spells are used for self defense then the karmic debt is minimal if you are mindful of your intent.
