If you go to the sauna regularly and take a cold shower afterward, you won’t mind the outside temperature of 30 degrees (86 °F). The circulation is trained for extreme temperatures and temperature fluctuations. Menthol and ice crystals as essence in the infusion have a cooling effect and contribute to refreshment. This makes high temperatures outside more tolerable, plus the cold shower and cold plunge pool are never far away, and maybe even a pool.

Sauna infusion – applications and information

Before your sauna session, simply mix 3 – 5 drops of your favorite essence with the water that you need for the infusion. The rule here is: less is more – essential oils always have an intense effect and should never be poured undiluted onto the hot sauna stones. Too strong a concentration irritates the mucous membranes and leads to headaches and circulatory problems.
