Beautiful hand-tooled wooden shave bowls, custom made just north of Minneapolis for Sebesta Apothecary. These bowls are made in slightly varied sizes and shapes, using multiple kinds of wood harvested from naturally fallen trees.

When paired with a Horse Hair or Boar Bristle Shave Brush and Shave bar, you can create the perfect shaving set.

Each bowl is unique with slight variations in coloring, design, and shape. The bowls average about 4.5" wide x 2.5" high.

Cruelty-Free, Vegan, and Zero Waste


Hand-made using local Minnesota woods including Elm, Oak, and Boxelder.

Hand-tooled bowls: Made using single-source woods.
Premium hand-tooled: Bowls are made using multiple kinds of wood or more intricate designs.


Drop shave bar into the bowl, add a small splash of water to soap and begin to brush the bar to create foam. Continue brushing until you have enough of the thick lather to work with. Add a few additional drops of water if needed.

Apply lather to skin using the brush and shave as usual.

Once shaving is complete, pour out any excess water from the cup or bowl, rinse the soap from the brush, shake off excess water and allow to dry bristles down for next use. Soap and bubbles remain in the bowl to dry, the lather will be reactivated with water during the next use.

If the bowl gets dirty or begins to look faded, gently hand wash with warm (not hot) soapy water. Do not place in dishwasher, microwave, or oven.

Polish inside and out with a small amount of coconut oil to hydrate, darken and shine.


Wooden bowls are compostable. Due to the length of compost time, industrial compost facility recommended.


Q: Can this bowl sit on the shelf in the shower?

A: Yes, but you will want it to be in an area where it will be out of direct water. When you have a Shave Bar inside the bowl you will want it to dry between uses.

Q: It looks like these bowls are all a bit unique, I have an idea in my mind of something that will look perfect in my bathroom. Can you help me pick?

A: Yes, reach out and give us an idea of what you are looking for, we can send photos of the bowls we have on hand. Or you can check out our Events page and come out to see us (Give us a heads up and we can bring a larger variety of these bowls!)

Q: Is this product and shaving method just for men?

A: Absolutely not! Many of us have hair in places we would prefer not to. Why would gender change how we deal with it?

Q: Can you suggest a zero waste razor?

A: Hands down our favorites come from LEAF. Although there is a bit of sticker shock at first, the replacement blades cost pennies and this razor will be with you for at least a dozen years. They have several options based mostly on where you plan to shave, but we enjoy the multi-blade flexible head of the Leaf Razor.
