A bunch of birch branches? Nope. This one is "saunavihta" or "saunavasta" in Finnish. An essential sauna tool. It's used in the sauna to enhance the effect of heat by beating onself with it. 

Midsummer celebration continues here in Rovaniemi, Lapland, and we guess that saunavihtas are in use in many Finnish cabins today! 🍃🍃
