Some people say that binding and banishing should be a last resort after you've done everything you can to deal with a situation or person and are unable to reach an understanding. I, however, don't see it that way. I say nip it in the bud before enough is enough. My Binding Oil has the strongest ingredients known for this purpose such as Morning Glory and Ladies Thumb. If you've ever had Morning Glories in your garden, you'll understand. They can take over your whole garden in a short amount of time if not dealt with and pulled up from the roots. They will choke your other plants, winding their way around and around them. So, this is why they make an excellent component for Binding formulas. Binding is to bring someone's meddlesome activities to a halt, in essence, tying them up so they are no longer able to do anything to bother you. This is an excellent formula to use with my other oils such as Tapa Boca (STFU), Banishing, Bend Over, and Mind Your Own Business.
