The J.R. Watkins brand of products began when the company's namesake developed an amber-colored liniment oil made from medicinal and non-medicinal ingredients. This natural apothecary product contains ingredients such as camphor, which is extracted from evergreen trees, capsicum, made from red peppers, spruce oil and water. J.R. Watkins liniment is sold as a pain reliever for sore muscles, and originated in 1868. J.R. Watkins invented the Watkins method of marketing products, which includes using door-to-door sales representatives and offering customers free trials. Customers sampled products contained in trial-mark bottles, and got their money back if product use remained above the mark.
The J.R. Watkins product line includes a variety of personal care products, including soaps, creams and lotions; health products such as cold remedies, pain relievers and supplements; and home cleaners. Its popular gourmet food items include numerous natural flavor extracts such as vanilla, lemon and peppermint and spices such as cinnamon, ginger and black pepper.Learn more about Coupons & Sales
