    You & Sauna

    Tell about your experiences about (Finnish) sauna!

    IF you want, you could answer these questions:

    a) What temperature you prefer? 60? 80? 100 C ?
    b) A wood-burning or electric sauna?
    c) Have you ever used vihta?

    I loooove the sauna haha

    I have one where I'm living so I go nearly everyday

    For some reason it doesnt go so hot maybe I'm not using it corrently but I'm used to about 50 degrees which is nothing really but at the weekend we go to another sauna and thats much hotter I burnt my legs on the wood last weekend it was that hot haha but I loooove it and vihta is fun any excuse to hit people

    Oh and sauna honey is awesooooome and putting some eucalyptus oil in the water makes the sauna smell lovely and really good for f you have a cold or something

    I think there's a huge difference between the saunas. In many countries the saunas are cold, like only 40 C degrees, or they dont pour water on stove to make it feel more warmer etc. Or if public, they are more like brothels.

    I remember a story about French man, who was visiting Finland for some business issues or something, and he went to electric sauna of his hotel with his Finnish collegues. And when the Finns started to throw water on stove he panicked about pouring water on electric device and run out... Haha, i am not too good telling stories in English D

    I like sauna!!! It's just such a great way to spend time! Talking & beer & getting clean! Awesome!

    I'm usually going to wood-burning sauna because it's definitely better than electric one and I like the heat above 90C, usually 100. For me going to sauna that is colder than 90 is like wasting time because real sauna has to be HOT!

    And yes, vihta is something I use too when I go to sauna but not always. But like Kylie mentioned above, eucalyptus oil in water really makes wonders with the smell

    Ah, the sauna, one of the crown-jewels when it comes to Finnish Culture! How do those crazy foreigners manage without?

    My ideal sauna would definately have a wood-oven, temperature at about 80'ish celsius, perhaps a touch more, since the heat really has to bite your skin a bit... The vihta ain't my style though. Although it has that lovely scent! As mentioned before, oils do the job as well though.
