Finnish sauna with the birch  branch bath whisk. Used to increase circulation to perspire and cleanse the body followed by a soapy basin bath and rinse. Best feeling in the world.

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. Vihtas can even be bought from a shop and stored into a freezer for later (winter) use. Using a vasta improves blood circulation, and its birch odour is considered pleasing.
