Whether you’re at a cabin in the woods, or enjoying your backyard, here’s everything you need to know to safely and effectively enjoy your first wood-burning sauna session.


Why Use a Sauna?

Using a sauna can be a wonderful way to relax and unwind. Here are a couple of reasons why people love saunas:
  1. Relaxation: The warmth of the sauna helps to relax your muscles and mind, providing a tranquil escape from the everyday hustle.
  2. Stress Relief: Spending time in a sauna can help reduce stress and promote a sense of well-being.
Getting Started with Your Sauna Session

  1. Hydrate: Drink plenty of water before entering the sauna to stay hydrated. The heat will cause you to sweat, so hydration is essential.
  2. Dress Appropriately: Wear minimal clothing, such as a swimsuit or a towel. This helps your body sweat more effectively and keeps you comfortable.
  3. Gather Essentials: Bring a towel to sit on, a water bottle to stay hydrated, and a timer to monitor your session duration.
During Your Sauna Session
  1. Start Slowly: As a first-time user, start with shorter sessions of 5-15 minutes. Gradually increase the duration as you become more comfortable with the heat.
  2. Listen to Your Body: Pay attention to how you feel. If you start to feel dizzy, lightheaded, or uncomfortable at any time, it’s important to step out and cool down immediately.
  3. Stay Hydrated: Keep a water bottle with you and drink regularly to replace fluids lost through sweating.
Safety Considerations
  1. Health Conditions: If you have any medical conditions, such as heart disease, respiratory issues, or are pregnant, consult your doctor before using the sauna.
  2. Avoid Alcohol: Do not consume alcohol before or during your sauna session. It can increase the risk of dehydration and other health complications.
  3. Cool Down Gradually: After your session, take a few minutes to cool down gradually. You can take a cool shower or splash your face with cold water.
  4. Use Caution with Heat: The wood stove and surrounding areas can get extremely hot. Use caution when entering, exiting, and moving around the sauna.
Post-Sauna Care
  1. Rest and Rehydrate: After your session, continue drinking water and take some time to relax. Enjoy the feeling of relaxation and rejuvenation.
  2. Clean Up: Make sure to leave the sauna clean for the next user. Wipe down any surfaces and ensure the stove is cool before handling it.


Your Ox Sweat Sauna tent is ready to provide you with a serene and soothing experience. By following these guidelines, you can ensure a safe, enjoyable, and relaxing sauna session. So sit back, relax, and let the gentle heat of the sauna melt your stress away.
