Our Yosemite Cedar saunas are made using sustainably sourced incense cedar lumber. Incense Cedar trees are native to the regions of Northern California, Southern Oregon, and parts of Nevada. This special soft wood is known for her aromatic properties, which are released through heat and water, creating a naturally cleansing aroma when steaming.
In addition to her aromatic properties, Incense Cedar heart and sap wood is non-resinous, light in weight, and offers beautiful tones of cream, tan, and reddish brown. These colors are brought out through the use of a natural, non-tinted water based varnish to protect the wood from decay over time.
Our saunas value the natural look and are hand - crafted using the most natural building techniques possible to create sturdy, beautiful, furniture style saunas. Each piece of wood is hand cut, surface planed, and hand sanded to a fine finish that is safe and comfortable for bare skin, and showcases the natural beauty of the wood’s grain.
While the designs of the saunas are uniform, each sauna will vary slightly based on the design from the original cedar tree. These saunas are made with love and integrity for a high quality product that lasts a lifetime, and each sauna is completely unique and one of a kind. Ultimately, mother nature designs and dictates the design of the sauna.
What type of material (wood) is the sauna made out of?
Incense Cedar wood
Is the sauna painted, varnished or finished with anything?
Each sauna is hand planed and sanded to create smooth surfaces on all sides. To help protect the saunas from moisture, condensation, and temperature changes that may occur with steaming, each sauna is finished with a natural, non-toxic, water based varnish that highlights the grain of the wood. This varnish was chosen for its protective qualities to prevent environmental damage that comes with temperature and humidity changes so that these saunas can last many years. Unvarnished Saunas are available. Please add in the order notes that you would like an unvarnished sauna. Depending on where we are in the production it can take us up to two weeks to have an unvarnished sauna ready.
