A vasta or vihta, whose name depends on the region, is a bundle of fresh birch twigs used for gently whipping the body. At the summer birch twigs are fresh, and in Finland, frozen twigs are available at supermarkets throughout the year. But you can buy twigs here online – Birch twigs for Sauna. Usually, Finnish use birch twigs. Instead of birch, oak, linden or fir twigs can be used. Using twigs is really good for the skin. Whipping with twigs draws warmth to the body and, at the end, use twigs instead of a towel, to wipe the skin.
Bucket and ladle
In a traditional Finnish sauna, humidity is low. They throw water on stones to make the steam. Originally, Finnish use plain water from tap, lake or spring, but not the sea water in the sauna and Baltic nations add herbs to water. Herbs added to the water produce fragrance and health benefits for the organism. While it doesn’t matter do you prefer the smell of natural tar and wood or you like aromatics fragrances, every passionate sauna lover definitely needs a bucket and ladle in the sauna. There are metal and wooden buckets and ladles, both are useful, while different tastes make final decision.
