Natural Mosquito Repellents:

Natural Mosquito Repellents:

* Rub Watkins medicated ointment on your pants and legs to ward off ticks.

* Use half Watkins vanilla (has to be pure vanilla) and half water and for a mosquito and tick repellent.

* Dab Watkins lavender oil on your pulse points; it smells great on you but repels insects.

Natural Health Tips

ASTHMA: Mix 1 tsp. honey with 1/2 tsp. Watkins cinnamon and take it at night before going to bed.

DRY SKIN: Combine 1 cup oatmeal, 1 cup warm water, 1 Tbsp. Watkins vanilla extract, and 1/2 cup baking soda in a blender or food processor until you have a smooth paste. Pour this paste under the running water while drawing the bath. Very soothing to dry, itchy skin.

MUCUS IN COUGH: Pour 1 cup boiling water over 1/2 tsp. each of Watkins ginger, Watkins ground cloves, and Watkins cinnamon. Filter. Sweeten with 1 tsp. honey and drink.

STOMACH ACHE: A simple cure for a stomachache is to dissolve 1 1/2 tsp. Watkins ground cinnamon in 1 cup warm water, cover and let sit for 15 minutes, then drink it like tea. This remedy can also ease diarrhea and flatulence.

VOMITING AND NAUSEA: Watkins cinnamon and sliced ginger work by interrupting nausea signals sent from the stomach to the brain. If you are an herbal tea drinker, simply sprinkle cinnamon on the tea and drink. To make ginger tea, simmer a few slices of ginger in hot tea water.

Watkins Natural Body Oils

J.R. Watkins soothing body oils are a rich blend of luxurious natural oils regarded for their anti-aging and nourishing qualities. Pour a small amount into a bath or smooth into skin immediately after bathing—your skin will thank you!

• All body oils are 99.50% natural and above.
• Available in four essences: aloe & green tea, lemon cream, lavender and mango.
• Use in bath or as an all-over body oil.
• Perfect for massages and cuticle care.
• Natural oils include grapeseed, macadamia, apricot, avocado and safflower oil.
• Leaves a soft, non-greasy feel.
• Packaged in Watkins exclusive glass Trial Mark bottle.

Essential Ingredients:

• Grapeseed Oil: Produced from the residue of grapes that have been pressed for wine. Recently
“rediscovered” as a cooking oil for its hearthealthy blend of linoleic acid and antioxidants, it has long been a favorite massage oil. It is cleansing, toning, very light and odorless, and absorbs easily through the skin.

• Macadamia Nut Oil: This rejuvenating body oil has a warm, nutty aroma and excellent spreadability with no greasy feel. Its fatty acid composition is similar to that of natural skin
oils (sebum), including some of the acids that are crucial to the maintenance of the skin’s water barrier functions. It is excellent for daily skin care to moisturize and soften the skin.

• Apricot Kernel Oil: This oil is similar in texture and properties to almond oil (you’ll notice that
the pit of an apricot looks remarkably like an almond), and is in the same category as olive oil
and avocado oil. Apricot kernel oil is considered by many chemists to be an excellent natural
replacement for mineral oil; it is rapidly absorbed by the skin and has a high vitamin E content.

• Avocado Oil: Delivers essential fatty acids, and contains vitamin A (in the form of carotenoids),
plus exceptionally high amounts of vitamins D, E and potassium to help keep skin moist and
smooth. Avocado oil has the highest penetration rate among similar oils.
