Cauldrons are large metal pots traditionally used in witchcraft and other spiritual practices for burning incense, herbs, and other materials. They are often made of cast iron or other heat-resistant materials and have a wide mouth and three legs to support them over a flame. Cauldrons are also used in cooking, particularly for stews and soups. In spiritual practices, they are used for rituals such as smudging, divination, and spell casting. The image of a witch stirring a cauldron is iconic in popular culture and has been associated with magic and mysticism for centuries. Today, cauldrons are still used in spiritual practices and are popular decorations for those interested in witchcraft and paganism.
