Although saunas may seem like a trend in some areas of the world, it is a lifelong piece of everyday life on others. Over in Finland, saunas are a common practice and are just as common as an athlete going to the gym. Their sauna experience, however, differs.
Unlike some Americanized saunas, there are no saturated scents or soft music played. The Finns simply enjoy the steam and the natural scents of birch and tar. It is considered an honor to get invited to a sauna and they simply take the time to cleanse their mind and body.
