The Witch's Cauldron

The Witch's Cauldron is a popular device found in folklore, fantasy and cartoons - it is said to be one of the most important tools of witchcraft alongside the Witch's Broom, the Spell Book and (in fantasy settings) the Magic Wand.

The Witch's Cauldron is depicted as a large pot, often black and bubbling with evil power as the witch (or coven) stirs what is commonly known as a "Witch's Brew" - popular imagination envisions this "brew" as causing clouds of evil smoke to rise around the Cauldron and often his brew is the basis of the witch's wicked spells.

Despite its popularity the Witch's Cauldron is almost entirely a fictional concept that goes along with the "wicked witch" stereotype - though it may well of been inspired by pagan rituals or alternative medicine from days gone by.
