I was wondering how figs are used in love spells, i have read somewhere about freezer spells slicing figs using people's names but someone told me to ask around about using honey, photos and some other methods, anyone know about this?

Have you done any research to find the answers to this yourself? Googling brings up a large list of sites with information on this very subject.
One use for a fig in a love spell is to carve your initials into the fig and then have the one you want to fall in love with you eat the fig. Dipping it first in honey to "sweeten someone towrads you" and then having them eat it might enhance the spell.
i heard crazy things like people masturbating into a fig, add their photos then seal it with red wax before placing it in a jar of honey with cinnamon and another one is to put the peoples photos and names inside a fig, with honey before freezing it but i thought freezer spells are like hot footing people, ridding them.
Ok, so I did a little research for you. Figs are used in love magic as ingredient in magical food recipes. Fig is an aphrodisiac, so it attracts lover not love.
History - Figs are one of the most ancient foods and had an important role in the Mediterranean diet for millennia. Egyptian priests bit into a ripe fig at the conclusion of consecration ceremonies. The Greeks considered them the ideal food, and figs were never harvested until a priest declared them ripe. In Asia, the Banyan fig tree is sacred to Buddha and is said to have its roots in heaven. Figs symbolize the rewards of meditation. The fruits are actually flower cases that contain both the male and the female flowers during fertilization. After fertilization, the flower cases swell with seeds and ooze sweet nectar. The word "fig" actually comes from the Arabian word for testicles, though esoterically, they are thought to embody only the highest powers of fertility and love. Growing a fig plant (such as Ficus carica or Ficus benjamina) indoors brings good luck and abundance to the room in which it is placed. Having someone bite into a fig while you are holding it makes them instantly infatuated with you.
Also believed that dried figs are used in Fertility/love spells- excellent ingredient in spell bags. Divination. Sacred to Dionysus, Juno and many others. Recommended for a Beltane altar. If placed on the doorstep before leaving it will ensure you will arrive home safely.
In magical practice:
Masculine, planet is Jupiter, element is Fire, powers of love, divination and fertility.
USES: If eaten fresh, the fig will help aid in conception and and impotence. Small phallic images carved in the wood and carried will do the same role. In the home, if the fig is grown in the bedroom it helps bring sleep, in the kitchen it aids with the knowing the family will never go hungry, anywhere else it will bring luck and protection. If placed on the doorstep before leaving it will ensure you will arrive home safely. To charm a man or woman, give them a fresh fig grown by you, they will be bound to you for as long as they like figs.
