relaxing in dundalk saunaDundalk Leisure Craft saunas are a popular choice for home and cottage backyards across Canada. Beautiful, durable Dundalk saunas are available in a range of styles and sizes to fit any family or budget. SaunaFin is the number one provider of Dundalk Leisure Craft saunas in Canada and North America. If you recently purchased a Dundalk Leisure Craft sauna, here is a helpful guide for making the most of your new home sauna.


The high heat of a sauna can quickly dehydrate any bather if they do not pay close attention to hydration. At SaunaFin, we recommend drinking 500 millilitres of water before using your sauna and one litre of water for every hour spent inside the sauna.

Set The Right Temperature

The temperature of Dundalk saunas should always reflect your personal preference. Use tiered seating in your home sauna to customize your heat experience. Higher seats will be hotter than lower seats, allowing you to experience the level of heat you need in a particular session. You can also adjust the temperature to be higher or lower depending on the length of your sauna session. Usually, you will want a lower temperature for longer sessions and vice versa for hot, short sessions.

Get Some Steam Going

Another great way to increase heat and personalize your sauna session is to generate steam. Simply splash water onto your sauna rocks to create steam and enjoy the benefits of reduced congestion, open airways, and revitalized skin. Humidity can also make lower temperatures feel hotter, allowing you to crank up the heat without increasing the temperature of your heater.  

Cool Down

When you are starting to feel very warm and are craving cooler temperatures, we recommend leaving the sauna to take a cold shower or jump in a pool or lake. Cold water will help to stimulate blood flow and kickstart the benefits of your sauna session.

Round 2

Following your cool-off session, we recommend heading back into your sauna. According to Scandinavian tradition, proper sauna use involves multiple short sauna sessions interspersed with cold showers or swimming.

Time To Eat

At SaunaFin, we do not recommend eating for at least a few hours before a sauna session. However, following a Dundalk Leisure Craft saunas session, you can enjoy a meal or snack to help your body and mind recover. We recommend drinking something hydrating like water or a sports drink as part of your after-sauna routine.
