Castile soap originated in the Castile region of Spain. It is made with 100% Olive Oil and is renowned for its gentle properties and smooth, lotion-like lather with tiny bubbles. This soap is mild enough for babies’ skin and luxurious enough for yours! Delicate facial skin appreciates the tender cleansing properties of this classic soap.
A unique twist to this soap is the extra-long cure time. Our soaps are generally ready to use in about 6 weeks, but this one takes almost a year to cure! Well worth the wait, you will see. All of our soaps get better with time (so don’t worry if you buy too many!), but like a fine wine, Castile needs a lengthier rest to bring out its velvety character.
We have this unique soap in three varieties:
- Classic; which is left unscented for sensitive skin and noses
- Lemon & Herbs; scented like a Mediterranean kitchen garden on a warm summer day.
- Lavender; most beloved of all essential oils
We are pleased to offer this special soap, available in limited quantities.
These items are handcrafted in small batches with resulting variations, so each bar of soap looks unique! Photographs are representative of the product, but your individual bar of soap may look different.
