A few years back I was given a small cauldron for Christmas, with no experience of magical items they expected I would have a definite use for it but three years later and I still have no clue what to do with it.
What do you guys use cauldrons for, because I really feel like it should have a use?
Well you need to throw that eye of newt, and dogs tail somewhere right?
A cauldron is often associated with witchcraft in western culture. Sometimes used to represent the womb of the "Goddess" like the chalice. In regards to its use. You can use to to make oils, potions, incense burning, to hold candles etc. If it's small enough, you can fill it with water and use it for scrying too.

I've known some people to do water scrying using their cauldron. I just use mine though for burning charcoal incense and so do several other pagans I know.
So not to ruin the cauldron, fill it at least a quarter full of sand first. Place your charcoal in the middle and then add your resin, crushed herb or powdered incense on top. And when I say charcoal, I am not referring to the type used for outdoor cooking with a grill. There are special made charcoals used for incense. Health food stores and new age shops normally have them.
