Loyly is an integral part of the authentic sauna experience.
Many consider Loyly a spiritual experience. And as we look under the metaphysical hood, here’s what happens when we toss water on sauna rocks:
- The water spoon or container in our hands contains two parts Hydrogen and one part Oxygen: H2O.
- When we toss H2O on sauna rocks, the water turns to water vapor, or steam.
- Water vapor is brought into the body through breathing and through the open pours of the skin.
- A high concentration of H2O – water vapor – enters the lungs and “super charges” the respiratory system, and maybe other systems too.
As we sit on the sauna bench, breathing in super oxygenated air, something important is happening.
What is it?
Whatever it is, it is good for you and is a good thing.
