A sauna is a room or group of rooms heated to a high temperature in which a sweat bath is taken. Especially after long and active days outdoors, you and your body deserve a lot of relaxation. If you also have your own sauna at home, this relaxation will grow immeasurably.
Saunas are available in different versions, for example solid wood saunas for an original sauna experience or practical and quickly assembled element saunas, which come with lots of accessories. In addition, there are also surprisingly compact saunas for little space at home.
A few words about specific sauna elements:
- Infrared radiators are components or independently functioning devices that generate infrared radiation, which are used for heating or drying purposes. In contrast to other heaters, infrared radiators mainly work by heating the illuminated surface, not by heating the air on the radiator.
- In Central Europe it is common practice to add a few drops of essential oils to the infusion water, called infusion concentrates or sauna fragrances in specialist shops. After the infusion, the aromatic substances then unfold as a fragrant scent, and sweating is accompanied by a fragrant experience. The substances are inhaled but also absorbed through the skin. In salt peeling, the body is rubbed with salt after the pre-sweating or the first infusion. The salt has a sweat-inducing and disinfecting effect, and the skin is also exfoliated by rubbing.
- A sauna control unit is used to regulate the temperature and, if necessary, the humidity, fans or infrared radiators. A distinction is made between two types of control, external and integrated control.
- An electric sauna heater generates heat by means of electric heating elements and emits it into the room air via stones.
The sauna experience is of course only complete with the right accessories, e.g. headrests, backrests or ladles, hourglasses, infusion buckets and sauna stones.
