the isolation layer around the body, then they pour two-three wooden
spoons of water (usually mixed with essential oils) onto the hot
stones. The Saunameister performs these two techniques in turns,
which gives guests a very pleasant feeling. Try the honey, beer or
lemon Aufguss, or even the erotic Aufguss!
