"A charm that conjures a blast of freezing cold air from the end of the wand."
—Description[src]

The Freezing Spell (Glacius) is a charm that conjures ice from the tip of the wand, which in turn can extinguish fires, create ice blocks and cool off salamanders. The spell is capable of freezing several inches of water solid within seconds, making it durable enough for a thirteen-year old to walk across without falling through or injuring themselves.

The charm also has the unfortunate side-effect of making the breath of anyone nearby turn into thick white mist due to the extreme frigidity caused by the spell's casting.

Professor Remus Lupin taught this spell to his third year class by hiding a spellbook somewhere behind a secret passageway in the classroom and having students find and read it. Later on that year, Professor Filius Flitwick included it in the third year exams for charms class.
