It is great for making brews (such as oils), incense-burning, and can be used to hold large, wide pillar candles. A fire is often lit within and the flames are leaped over as a simple fertility rite or at the end of a handfasting. If filled with water, this cauldron can be used for scrying.
I have now bought 2 of the large pentacle tripod cast iron cauldrons as gifts for very dear friends of mine living far away, and they both absolutely loved them! Added a few extra products and everything is as described and came beautifully packaged and presented. Cauldron is a good size and well worth the cost, thank you so much!
