Called 'Vihta', sauna whisks are an important part of Finnish culture. Gently slapping the skin with this bundle of dried birch twigs stimulates circulation and gives off a fresh aroma. There are many types of whisks, but birch is most popular for relieving muscle pain, cleaning the skin, and promoting ventilation of the lungs. Remove the packaging but leaving the netting around the whisk. Immerse it first in lukewarm water for 20-25 minutes, then carefully loosen the netting and let the whisk sit in warm water for another 5-10 minutes. You can start to use the whisk when your skin has warmed up nicely. After the sauna, lightly rinse the whisk and let it hang in a cool, dry place. You can reuse it following the same instructions. Do not leave the whisk in the sauna on the benches or the stove.

Finnish forest in our American sauna
August 5, 2021
If we can’t be in Finland, we’re happy to have a little bit of the Finnish forest for a special sauna.
Pros
  • Perfect traditional vihta. We use it outside since it gets a little messy, but it feels so good when you?re skin is still hot!
  • Packed and shipped well. No crumbling at all!

Koivu switch

Do you also provide cedar switches for sauna time?
Pros
  • Hold together longer than Koivu switches.
Cons
  • Cedar switches can clog the floor drain if you don't clean up before you wash up.

Smells like summer in the woods

Large, generous amount of leaves and stems. I'm using it as a decorative item with a sauna bucket and ladle. Looks wonderful together.

Smells great

I don't have a sauna so I just purchase two for decoration. It has the smell of a kind of tea that I had during my trip in China. As decoration, it adds a idyllic and Christmas vibe to the room.

Has the switch been cured before it is sent to you?
1 Answer
Yes - this is a completely dried and packaged whisk.


To use, you would re-hydrate it by soaking in water.

Will the whisk deteriorate and need to be replaced ?  Assume usage in a home sauna used 3+ times a week.   Thanks and be well
1 Answer
Over time, this item may wear out as it is a natural product. But it should last quite a while as long as it is properly hung to dry between uses.
