Allure Natural Apothecary = J.R. Watkin’s Products October 10, 2012 by Shiva Rose J.R. Watkins Products have been around for 144 years. Way before it became all the rage to go natural and toxic free, Dr. Watkins was making household products ranging from dish soap and bath salts to seasonings and pain relievers so homespun that they coined the phrase "pure enough to eat." I appreciate their products but most importantly they are also eco-conscious by using biodegradable packing materials and working with recycling programs. There are so many items on their site but I really like their bath soaks, dish soaps, lemon window cleaner and and pain relieving muscle soaks. The lavender bath soak is perfect for the kids before bed.
