(12pm – 3pm) Tudor Soap Making: In Tudor times soaps were made by hand and included natural ingredients such as dried lavender, cloves, olive oil and pepper corns. The history of soap dates back thousands of years. In 16th Century Europe olive oil became the basis of the hard white soap we know today. It was called ‘Castile Soap’, after the area in Spain where they had an abundant supply of olive oil!
