Eucalyptus bath besom
The most important symbol of the sauna is the bath besom. Bath besom are used in saunas to massage, rejuvenate, heal and relax the body. The eucalyptus bath besom we offer, is prepared from eucalyptus leaves, which are rich in essential oils and minerals. Thanks to these oils and minerals the pores are quickly opened; therefore the body easily excretes heat-spots, micro-organisms and other impurities. Procedures with eucalyptus bath besom or eucalyptus products are extremely effective. The effect is felt instantly: as eucalyptus vapor travels through the trachea and bronchi, it cleans the airway, induces metabolism and blood circulation. Patting with bath besoms is a pleasant and beneficial way to spend time, which relaxes the body, strengthens the immune system. Eucalyptus is very popular, because it has many healing properties, this fact is scientifically approved and very well evaluated over time and experience.
