It’s the Little Things: Pretty J.R. Watkins Soaps

It’s the Little Things: Pretty J.R. Watkins Soaps

Have you seen these in your local grocery store?  I first spotted these vintage-look hand soaps at Target and was instantly smitten.  Don’t you love the apothecary look?


They have five different scents in their liquid hand soap:  Lavender, Aloe & Green Tea, Lemon, Grapefruit, and Orange Citrus.  In my opinion, Lemon and Grapefruit are the hands-down best fragrances with Grapefruit being my favorite.  (not pictured)

A quick Google search led me to their website where I saw they had A LOT more products – all with the same pretty typeface.  Even better?  The importance they place on manufacturing truly natural products.

From their “About” section

Nestled in the Mississippi River Bluff town of Winona, MN., Watkins has been America’s pioneer in natural living since 1868. As America’s original natural apothecary manufacturer, Watkins uses only the finest natural ingredients in its diverse lines of personal care, home care, remedies, and organic flavorings.

Committed to being America’s most trusted natural products company, Watkins adheres strictly to the same quality standards set forth by its founder J.R. Watkins. J.R. Watkins Natural Apothecary line of personal care contains only natural, environmentally friendly ingredients from renewable resources, avoiding chemicals like parabens, sulfates, phthalates and more and, is one of very few lines to be certified by the Natural Products Association.

Pretty neat, right?  Here are some other products I noted from their site.

These sink sets would be a sweet hostess gift.

A pretty basket with some flowers and some J.R. Watkins products would be a nice gift also.  This nifty gifty is for a teacher!  (seen here)

And how adorable would their baby line be as a baby shower gift?!  LOVE the mint green color.

What kid doesn’t like some foaming soap action?!

Since Grapefruit and Lemon were my favorites, I brought those home.  Lemon for my kitchen, and Grapefruit for my bathroom.  Check it.

Yes, this is our Master Bathroom, in all of its original 1920 pink tile glory.  You know you want it.

Do you like J.R.Watkins products?  Have you seen any pretty everyday items lately?
