The 10 step to enjoy a Finnish sauna
The sauna is enjoyed for physical and mental health benefits, socializing and relaxing. To have an enjoyable and safe experience, it is important to use a sauna properly. There is no one right way to bathe in the sauna. The sauna process is as varied and wide ranging as people themselves, so beyond some basic guidelines it is up to you to determine what process works best for you. One of the main things to remember is to take your time and enjoy the experience.
1. When you decide to use the sauna, give yourself plenty of time to the whole sauna-bathing ritual. Finnish sauna is a very relaxing experience and generally takes at least an hour or two.
2. Put 4-5 pieces of wood and Firestarter (in the metal can) in the sauna-oven and light it. Open the vent in the bottom of the oven.
3. Check the oven every 15 minutes and feed more wood, when needed. You want to reach a temperature in the sauna of 80-85 degrees Celsius. When temperature has reached 80 degrees – close the bottom vent (see temperature measuring instrument on the wall inside the sauna).
4. Now take a shower first and do a ”pre-wash”. Entering the sauna with wet skin is desirable for some, but having dry skin is enjoyed by many too.
4. Place a towel on the sauna bench for hygiene reasons. Also, the wood of the sauna bench gets very hot. Do not bring anything else but towels and the water bucket into the sauna! Candles will melt and ruin the wood.
5. Add humidity to the air by throwing water on the hot rocks, increasing the temperature and humidity gradually. You can add a few drops of scent to the water in the bucket.
6. After first sweating (about 10-15 minutes) take a cold shower. Remember that a sauna is a sweat bath and you should only stay in as long as it feels comfortable. You can use the bowl of stones to count the numbers of sweatings. Use the honey or salt scrub to clean your skin.
7. Cool off and drink some water. You can step out of the hot sauna to the terrace to cool off occasionally.
8. Second warming now in the damp Sauna and you can also try bath with the VIHTA (birch whisk) because your skin is now smoother than on the first time.
9. Repeat the sweating and cooling off process as many times as desired.
10. After the warming and cooling process get clean after your Finnish sauna by washing with soap and water and rinsing well.
After a good Sauna you feel very relaxed and refreshed, almost like being re-born!
Empty the ashes the next day. You can pull out the bottom drawer where the ashes go to. There is a metal bucket in the shed next to the sauna, where you empty the drawer.
There are towels and bathrobes to use when using the sauna.
The sauna must not exceed 90* degrees. In case it gets too hot, leave the door open. Pour a bit of water on the stones, that cools it down.
No smoking indoors.
