Wild forest products in sauna
The Finnish sauna has a long, rich heritage, and wild forest products are key parts of it. The most important piece of equipment in a Finnish sauna is the birch whisk, known as “vasta” or “vihta” in Finland. You can also treat your feet to a herbal bath while you sauna, or you can cleanse your body with peat. After sauna, a great way to restore salt and fluid balance is to enjoy some delicious drinks and snacks made of wild forest products.
