The entrance to the smoke sauna door. The door handle is a moose antler. Note the birch whisk (vihta) hanging on the wall, with which we smote ourselves! In the heat of the sauna, the vihta produces a wonderful herbal smell.

Sometimes people make a vasta (or vihta); they tie together small fresh birch branches (with leaves on) and swat themselves and their fellow sauna bathers with it.
