It was so great to meet you Micaela! Love the photo of all of us - I didn't get one of those!

Yes, I use JR Watkins natural products exclusively in my home every day and have far too many favorites to list here! I'm drinking hazelnut coffee right now, made with Watkins hazelnut extract. Some days we enjoy vanilla coffee. The gourmet foods and cleaners are used daily here.

Looks like you all had a wonderful time, however you should see how well Watkins treats their direct sales consultants. We really are spoiled and treated like royalty during our all expense paid luxury trips.


Hi Jodi - Feel free to grab that photo if you want - it's a good one! Thanks for letting me use your photo of the Watkins building. Mine weren't nearly that good!



Hi Melody - how cool that you are a Watkins sales consultant! And even better that they treat you so well. Everyone that we met seemed to love working there! Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment!



J.R. Watkins is SUCH a cool company. I can't stop talking about them since I got home--it's hard not to be enthusiastic about a business that's so committed to the community and to delivering (real!) natural products.

It was great meeting you--hope we'll have the chance to meet up again at some type of blogging function!

I don't think I have that photo of all of us either! What a wonderful trip to a great company with a special group of bloggers. I agree with K-it was refreshing to see how dedicated J.R. Watkins is to their community and to a natural product line.

Michelle @Radiant Brown Beauty

The building is fabulous. I've never tried Watkins Naturals. I have my own product line, Blended Naturals but I am a total product geek at times so I would definitely like to try this brand.

Your trip looked like so much fun! The only blogger trip I ever attended was with Total Beauty and that was like 3 years ago.


I agree Kiersten - there's a good vibe going at the J.R. Watkins company! I'm so glad we met and I look forward to seeing you again! :)


So fun to hang out again Lori! Wasn't that a fun, midwestern escape?



Hi Michelle - thanks for stopping by! I bet you would like J.R.Watkins products! You can find them at Target, Whole Foods and many specialty stores.

Melody Thacker

I've enjoyed poking around your blog reading all your articles Micaela. We share a lot of common interests and I look forward to reading more from you!


Thanks Melody - I'm so glad you stopped by again!


Hi Micaela,
For many years, I had a door-to-door Watkins salesman! I bought lots of spices from them. Even their pepper was better than the grocery store versions.


What a neat memory Carol - thanks for sharing! You would have loved seeing their vanilla bean press and percolator. I'm going to write a post about that sometime soon!

I guess you could say I was raised on Watkins products. I remember my Mom and Grandmother using Watkins vanilla. I carried on the tradition using Watkins vanilla in my homemade ice cream at Family gatherings . I ran out once and tried a different brand and no-one liked it and they let me know. Needless to say I stocked up on Watkins! Now our Daughter, Wife and I are proud to be Watkins Associates.


Hi Lon - I love your Watkins vanilla story - thanks for sharing! Everyone I met at Watkins seemed very happy and dedicated to the business!
