Our wooden accessories are beautifully handcrafted of Finnish pine and Finnish craftsmanship. A bucket and dipper are essential Sauna accessories. A dipper or two of water splashed over hot Sauna stones creates vapor (löyly) that promotes perspiration to flush the pores. It also transforms the hot dry air into a comfortable moist atmosphere. Without the use of water, the bather cannot enjoy a truly authentic Sauna experience. Since our buckets are made of natural wood, which has a tendency to expand and contract in the heat of the Sauna, we highly recommend our heavy duty bucket liner (100L) to prevent leakage.
