Peppermint Soap Bar
Lather up this winter with one of the most popular scents of the holidays! Our Peppermint Soap Bar, made exclusively for Colonial Williamsburg, will leave your hands feeling soft and smelling sweet. Our exclusive peppermint soap bar is triple-milled vegetable soap enriched with peppermint oil and, just as it was in the 18th century, virgin olive oil. Soap made from olive oil was considered the mildest and finest soap during the colonial period. The formula's cocoa and shea butters keep your hands feeling soft. A treat for your skin and your nose! As a sign of its quality, the bar of soap is stamped with the Williamsburg logo.

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.
