The cast iron cauldron brings with it visions of secretive ancient witches and powerful bubbling brews. With such a long history it might surprise some to know that the cauldron is still a widely used tool in ritual practices, though perhaps not in quite the same way as myths and stories would have us believe. Regarded as a symbol of the womb, the cauldron carries with it a strong feminine energy and can be used in many different ways.
These small cast iron cauldrons are complete with legs, a lid, and a strong metal handle. They’re ideal for burning any kind of dried herb over charcoal pucks, great as a scrying tool when filled with water and not to mention how perfect they are for simple incense burning, candle holding and providing a fireproof surface for smoldering sage, palo or any cleansing herb bundles.
These are multi-purpose little altar companions that are useful in any kind of ritual/ceremonial work and so easily invoke feelings of connectedness with the history and imagery of western witchcraft. You won't believe how delightfully magickal you'll feel once you have one of these powerful little cauldrons on your altar!
