Its not eucalyptus. Its birch branches tied together.
They are used in the sauna and your supposed to smack yourself with the birch branches.
It mostly has massaging and skin cleaning effect.
This is very common feature in the countryside saunas, especially places where the sauna stove has a fireplace.
Sauna is great place to relax especially if you have flu or feel ill.
You feel totally relaxed and have a cleansed sentation thru out.
Thank god my ban is over so i could get this out from my chest.
