For centuries, birch has traditionally been used as an ingredient in cleansing mixtures. Birch withes are rich in tannins and essential oils. Due to the antiseptic properties of birch, released in the sauna due to the presence of steam and high temperature, the twigs perfectly cleanse and detoxify the body. Gentle "whipping" and massage with leafy twigs improves blood circulation in the body, which contributes to accelerating the process of cleansing the body of toxins. Thanks to the biologically active substances contained in the withers, an additional healing and aromatherapeutic effect is obtained.
Preparation of birch twigs for use in the sauna / bath:
Put the withes in cold water for 12 to 24 hours before use or in warm water for 1 to 1.5 hours. Do not soak in hot water. Protect against direct sunlight.
