7cm Cast Iron Cauldron
A Cast Iron Cauldron is an integral part of Wiccan and Pagan rituals. To many Witches, the cauldron is an indispensable item in the ritual repertoire.
There are many different roles Cauldrons can be used for anything from cooking, to being used as incense burners, or even as a fire resistance pit for burning items for rituals and spells.
Our Cauldrons are made from cast iron as this material is highly resilient to fire and will not burn or become damaged from the flames like other materials. Cast iron is also durable and strong and if properly kept clean and dried out after use will not rust that easily like other metals.
Cauldrons can also be used as incense burners when granular or powder incense is burned within the cauldron. If charcoal and incense are placed within a cauldron and lit the incense will begin to burn and smoke and there is no fear of the heat or fire breaking loose out of the cauldron as the cast iron holds and absorbs the heat extremely well leaving one with a pleasant burning incense for quite some time until it burns out.
How to care for your Cauldron
When you first get a cauldron, you’ll want to cleanse it immediately after you receive it. Cast iron tends to hold tight to magical energy, as well as the energy of everyone who came into contact with the metal while shipping, at the shop or even when it was being made.
You can multitask by making black salt, a magical ingredient perfect for protection spells or banishing spells, while you cleanse your cauldron;
- Dip your cauldron in the cool water of a running stream and let the power of the current wash away any weird energy that has settled into your cauldron. Thoroughly dry it off with a towel.
- Mix sea salt and olive oil or almond oil in your cauldron and wipe the inside and outside down with the mixture.
- Rub in the outside oil to the best of your ability and place your cauldron (uncovered) in the oven at 450 degrees Fahrenheit for ninety minutes.
- Turn off the oven, and wait for the cauldron to cool. Then pour the salt residue (now black salt) into an airtight jar.
- Rub a little more salt and oil into the cauldron (inside and out), and set the cauldron in the oven upside down for another ninety minutes at 230c.
- Let it cool, and you’re all set to use your cauldron!
