6007Re: Banya's Mold
- Apr 2, 2007Humm - well a banya is a Russian sauna, or sauna type bath (think long
hot steamy soak). I am wondering if the reference means mold as in
something that was commonly pressed in a mold & dried then added to
the baths. In that case I would look at Russian comfrey as the herb
that you need.
Just my thoughts -
