So, the font used to be used as a bath, for washing and warming. The font itself looks more like a large wooden barrel — indeed, what you can expect from a Russian bath. Especially, such a design is convenient for baths, small in size. The font was dipped in after the steam room.
The height of such a barrel most often exceeded a meter. A shelf for sitting was installed inside. Looks like a Japanese bath, doesn’t it? It only means that good, correct ideas are in the air.
The traditional font was made from the wood of cedar, oak or larch. And shared the beneficial properties of these wood species. However, wooden font requires constant humidity, otherwise the wood starts to dry out. Also the font needs regular cleaning and pushing hoops, if the design is in the form of a barrel.
Of course, in the old days, those who could not afford a font in the bath replaced it with a dip in the river, ice hole or snowdrift. Even then people knew about the favorable effects of contrast procedures.
And yet, the font was also used for warming up — it was filled with hot water and used for warming up. Some thrill-seekers took the barrel outside and even in winter enjoyed the pleasant warmth in the middle of frost.
