A Finnish Sauna is an important part of Finnish tradition and has become popular world-wide. Most every house in Finland has one. For a Finnish Sauna, a small-sized room or outdoor hut is typically heated to about 70-100 degrees Celsius (158-212 degrees Fahrenheit). While youre in there, water is gently poured on very hot stones, increasing the humidity in the room to around 20%.
Saunas are used both for recreational and therapeutic purposes, with most people utilizing them as a relaxation tool that provides additional health benefits. The majority of saunas built of wood, often aromatic, that release pleasing aromas as they heat.
Saunas are thought by many to be best used alternating hot and cold. To this end, spending enough time in the sauna to become hot, and then leaving the sauna to cool back down, before repeating, is an ideal way to use the sauna to its full potential. Many people enjoy leaving the sauna to leap into a body of cold water.
The Finnish sauna is by far the most popular sauna globally.
