Finnish traditional culture is full of mythical beings that inhabit all number of places. The sauna is no exception, home to the sauna elf (Saunatonttu) and the steam spirit (löylyhenkki).
The sauna elf protects the sauna and looks after the sauna sessions. Swearing in the sauna would upset the sauna elf who would drive users out who didn’t abide by the rules of the sauna.
