For nearly a 150 years, Watkins has been America’s pioneer in natural living, utilizing the finest natural ingredients in our product line from apothecary to spices. Since the beginning, Watkins specialized in home remedies using natural botanicals—like camphor, menthol and herbs—to help people feel better and live healthy lives. Company founder J.R. Watkins traveled the world searching for the finest natural herbs and extracts to formulate his remedies. During his travels, he realized the pure and rich spices from far away lands should be shared with his customers to use in their pantry, thus beginning Watkins long history as the spice company. To this day, Watkins adheres strictly to the same quality standards set forth by J.R. Watkins. With our J.R. Watkins Natural Apothecary line of natural personal care, we use only natural, environmentally friendly ingredients from renewable resources, avoiding chemicals like parabens, sulfates, phthalates and more. Cleaning products have also been a large part of our product mix as far back as 1917, with Vegetable Oil Soap, made purely of vegetable oils with no animal bi-products, fillers or colors. Watkins now aims to make your household chores a little easier and environmentally friendly, with our newest line of natural home care products - J.R. Watkins Natural Home Care - that are safe for your home and family.
