Lemon, ginger and peppermint ~ refreshing, invigorating and healthy!
The sauna infusion is the key to more intense sauna experiences. Classically it consists of water or snow that is placed on the hot sauna stones. The heat causes the water to evaporate immediately and humidifies the air in the sauna. The resulting steam provides an additional heat effect.
With a sauna shower you can enrich the steam with essential oils, herbs, fruits and spices and thus bring a pleasant scent into your sauna.
The best thing about it is that you can easily and spontaneously make this sauna infusion yourself at home.
