Using Webs in Spell Works
Spider Webs & Cob Webs in Spell Works
Spider webs and cob webs are perfect for binding spells of any kind. Such as:
Bind, tie-up, and incapacitate to prevent someone from doing harm
Love spells for trapping a specific person
The most often used webs come from the Orb-Weaver spiders, because their beautiful webs are very large, providing quite a bit of webbing. They’re also the ones that are most recognizable due to their association with Halloween decorations.
The best webs to obtain also contain a few dead bugs in them!
If you’re unable to obtain sufficient spider silk, then look around a few corners for cob webs. These may be easier to obtain, and if they have bugs in them, all the better.
How To Collect Webs
If you’ve found a spider web, collect it carefully either with your hand (if it doesn’t creep you out too much), or roll up tissue or a paper towel into a tube and swirl it through the web, gathering it on the paper. Cob webs can be collected with the hands or, if it’s a small web, a stick or Q-Tip will work great.
Once the webs are collected there are several ways to use it:
Place them in a bottle of Binding Oil
Cut up to burn with your incense, powders, or herbs
Put inside a Dollbaby
