Cast Iron Cauldron Uses in Wicca & Rituals-In wicca a cast iron cauldron symbolizes the womb of the Goddess and can also represent rebirth and purification through fire. The cast iron cauldron is considered a sacred vessel to the Goddess and so many individuals within the craft favor using it for this purpose. In Celtic influenced wicca the cauldron represents the goddess Cerridwen and Celtic legend also tells of a cauldron that was useful to warring armies: dead warriors could be put into the cauldron and would be returned to life, save that they lacked the power of speech. It was suspected that they lacked souls. These warriors could go back into battle until they were killed again. Cast iron cauldrons are excellent for cooking over camp fires or fire places and for centuries humans have used them to cook anything from stews and soups, to meat and beans.Cast iron 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 cast iron 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 abosobs the heat extremely well leaving one with a pleasant burning incense for quite some time until it burns out.
