Finnish saunas are traditional saunas built using wood, and are one of the most popular saunas for a natural detox. These saunas in Finland are not a luxury but more of a necessity. There are various types of Finnish saunas. But, the most common one involves use of volcanic rocks. Today, saunas have evolved a lot, and there are many manufacturers who build quality Finnish saunas and provide many quality accessories.
▶ Accessories for Finnish Sauna
One of the necessary accessory is the sauna bucket or sauna pail. A wooden sauna bucket with a handle is a good idea for a small sauna. With the bucket, you will also need a sauna dipper, which is nothing but a wooden spoon. You can also buy a sauna bucket liner. These are nothing but plastic or stainless steel inserts which are placed inside the bucket. These two are the most essential accessories in a Finnish sauna.
One more essential item you need to get when going to a sauna is a towel. Towels are necessary and you can wrap your body with them when taking a sauna. Also, you can carry a hand towel to wipe your sweat. Towels can be placed on the sauna seat and then you can sit on them, to prevent burning of your skin from the sauna seat's heat.
You can also add some aromatic oils to the sauna. There are many ways to do this. You can simply mix the water in the sauna bucket with some essential oils like eucalyptus, lavender or special sauna scented oils. Once the water-oil mix is sprinkled on the rocks, it will evaporate and give aroma, which will help you relax further. If you wish to avoid mixing the oils in water, then consider buying an aroma oil diffuser. You can also use aromatic candles for aroma or light.
If you want to scrub or clean your skin, then consider having sauna loofahs or brushes. This will help you scrub off the dead skin, while you enjoy taking a sauna. There are also specialty sauna soaps available, which don't melt in the sauna's hot temperature. One more sauna accessory that you can consider buying is the sauna light. These come in curved and straight designs.
You can have accessories like the tower heater, rolled mats, sauna door handle, sauna flooring, sauna door signs, and sauna rules frame. There are also etched glass sauna doors available, which will help you make the sauna look even better, thus eventually enhancing your sauna experience.
