Finnish Tar bathroom & sauna gift set
A gift set containing a bath & sauna brush with a boreal birch stock soaked in pine tar as a protective and preservative, and hand stitched with soft black horse hair bristles by the crafts people of a Finnish visually impaired workers cooperative. Paired with Finnish tar soap — a traditionally made soap containing naturally extracted pine tar from Vaasa on the west coast of Finland. Deep brown in colour and imbued with the scent of resinous woodsmoke (pine tar being the liquids exuded as pine roots and stems are slowly heated the point of carbonisation) the soap is gentle on the skin and said to possess mildly antiseptic qualities, as well as being useful in the treatment of minor skin conditions. One 200g soap on a rope, and two 60g bars. Provided in a gift box with magnetic closure.
