Here it is, the charmingly simple, wonderfully scented Castile Soap Bar that has charmed Colonial Williamsburg guests for decades. This "no frills" soap has a wonderful fresh scent and is made with vegan ingredients. Many of our guests love this soap for shaving - it produces a thick, luxurious lather and the oils won't dry out your skin.
- Castile scented colonial soap
- Made in USA
- 3 oz. soap bar
- WILLIAMSBURG exclusive
Made with a vegetable soap base with added shea butter, cocoa butter, olive oil, grapeseed oil and fragrance. No animal products are used in this soap.
Soaps were occasionally made at home in the eighteenth-century by boiling lime-ash and fat products over an outdoor fire. However, those who could afford them preferred the finer imported soaps available from local merchants. Imported soaps were generally scented and colored.
Soap could be purchased by the ball or the bar. Bars were formed by cooling the hot soap mixture in a large rectangular mold and then cutting the block into individual bars. Round wash balls were shaped by hand.

I took a trip to Williamsburg and this soap smelled so good, I had to buy 2. I kept one in my linen closet while I used the other. My linen closet smelled HEAVENLY. I was so happy to learn there was a way to buy it online. I will always have a bar to use and one to keep in my closets.
This castile soap smells amazing. Such a clean smell
This is by far an amazing soap. The smell is clean and has an old fashioned scent to it.
I hope Colonial Williamsburg continues to sell this lovely bar of soap! Nothing like it is available anywhere else. The scent is pure and clean and it is my favorite soap of all time!
