When we look back through our modern lens at Tudor times, we think of it as a time when hygiene was almost non-existent. But that would be a misconception.
Bathing was fairly common during the Tudor rule of King Henry VIII. During the time of his father, there were many public bathhouses throughout England but their use would soon decline due to a new belief that baths could be harmful.
King Henry VIII would eventually close the last public bath houses in London in 1546, but he personally was a big fan of bathing. His love for his bath is reflected in the bathrooms he constructed at many of his palaces.
Our Tudor Medallion soap features oak leaves and a Tudor rose, symbols of a time when Henry VIII enjoyed his bath as much as he enjoyed a good meal and a good joust.

This decor soap is carefully crafted from a glycerin-enhanced shea soap and shipped in bio-degradable shrink-wrap.
Once the soaps is removed from its bio-degradable shrink-wrap, it can absorb moisture from the atmosphere, resulting in beads of glycerin dew forming on the surface. It’s best to keep the soap in the shrink-wrap until it is used for washing or for display.
To maximize the longevity of this luxury soap bar, keep the bar dry between uses. A soap dish that drains works best. For extended storage, please keep the soap in a protective wrapper, storing it in a cool, dry place away from moisture and light.
This soap is for external use only. Be sure to keep the soap and soap lather out of your eyes.
