Are you already familiar with Sauna Ritual? It’s an everyman’s – and woman’s right to have a relaxing moment in sauna, where we can forget all the troubles of today’s hasty life. Your moment in sauna can be shared with someone close to you or it can be completely your own private meditation time.
Let the spirit of the sauna touch your soul and the warmth of it pamper your body. With Sauna Ritual you can make your time in sauna even more luxurious.
Sauna Ritual has two important phases. Between the two phases you can relax (for example on a terrace), drink some water, have little fruits and have even more sauna. Essential part of Sauna Ritual is that you relax spiritually as well as physically and you forget time, at least to some extent. Grant your sauna moment with plenty of time, don’t hurry. Remember to drink plenty of water as you will sweat a lot during the ritual.
First phase of your sauna ritual:
Body scrub with sauna massage salt which has different scents depending on your mood.
Start your sauna ritual by having a shower and wash your body and intimate parts.
At the beginning in sauna let your body have time to ”temper” to the heat. We usually use a sand timer for this so it will take about 15 minutes. When the timer is half way, your pores are ready for the salt scrub and its’ effects. Massage the lovely smelling sauna salt into your whole body but avoid facial area. The salt scrub granules gently exfoliate your skin, renewing and also nourishing it. A lovely skin-friendly fragrance oil leaves a soothing scent on your skin.
Leave the sauna salt into your skin to make its’ wonders and after your first 15 minutes session (please check the timer occasionally but do not stress) have a shower to rinse off the salt. Do not use at this point any washing chemicals, just pure water is enough.
The sauna salt scrub has lots of lovely benefits:
- Improves cell metabolism and increases the amount of oxygen
- Improves the function of the sweat glands and helps cleaning
- Regulates the production of sebum, which helps in the treatment of oily skin
- Removes dead skin cells, so the skin is firmer and lines are smoothed out
- Minerals help the skin to restore its mineral content and calcium alleviates itching
Second phase of your ritual:
Moisturizing with Finnish sauna honey
At the last time of your sauna sessions when you relax again on the benches of sauna it is time to cherish your body with Sauna Honey Cream. Let your skin absorb the heat of the sauna still a few moments so that your pores are again ready to receive the great benefits of the Finnish sauna honey. Gently massage the sauna honey into your whole body, even to your face if you want. Let the sauna honey to absorb into your skin about 10-15 minutes in the nice heat. At the end of your sauna session just rinse yourself with clean water. Again, do not use any washing chemicals because your skin has already gotten everything it needs.
After your sauna session, please rest and drink water. Relax and let the sauna make its’ wonders!
