Start your day off with some extra magical potions and brews with our custom made cauldrons. Shaped like your favorite throwback potion pot, the cauldron is one of the items that are most familiar and easily recognizable as a ‘witch’ or ‘pagan’ object. Cauldrons, however, are a symbol found in many cultures. Cauldrons are closely associated with the hearth. In some Pagan traditions, cush as hearthcraft, the cauldron plays an integral part in a witch’s practice and spirituality.
Spiritually speaking, the cauldron is seen as a connection to the Otherworld, a place of mysticism, and a realm of the Divine. It can be seen to signify the endless cycle of birth, death, and rebirth. Cauldrons are seen as a feminine symbol, like most cups, bowls and other vessels. As with most other vessels, the cauldron is associated with the element of water.
Cauldrons have nearly endless uses! Depending on your personal belief or tradition, you may have different uses than those listed below. These are just some suggestions to get your creative juices flowing.
