What is the Russian bath? For a person who has never been there, it is associated with a room made of wood with a high temperature, where people hit each other with brooms until losing consciousness. For a man who understands — Bath — is a source of physical and mental balance, where the wood, temperature and whisk itself must be correct. And the right broom begins with choosing the right tree.
Each broom has a period when it should be laid in. A birch broom is harvested after Pentecost in early June, oak — in July.
