Natural Dry Shampoo

Unlike fairy tales and Hollywood movies, the best dreams do not come to life merely by chance. They are realized when one is open to the opportunities the universe affords them and when someone is not only able to identify a problem but to provide a feasible solution. When someone dares to say out loud that something is missing from the world + that they want to be the brave soul who takes on the challenge of filling the void. This exact situation occurred when Pantry Products’ founder, Michelle identified the need for truly natural, truly chemical-free products consumers could turn to in a misleading and toxin-filled personal care market.

In 2015, upon realizing what was hidden in the mass-produced personal care products on her shelves and how simply these same products could be crafted naturally, Michelle began whipping up health + wellness goodies for her friends + family with items she sourced from her kitchen pantry (in case you wondered where the name “Pantry” can from).

She applied her lifetime of crafting, her nearly two decades in corporate marketing, and her tireless work ethic to bring Pantry from her teeny Reno kitchen to her first storefront in less than 6 months. Since then, Pantry Products has grown to over 90 products, 3 brick + mortar locations, and 100s of wholesale stockists across the U.S. But, not without A LOT of hard work, late nights, and support from her personal network, and her dedicated Pantry team members.

Pantry’s first store. located in The Basement,  was known as The Pantry Vault because it was located inside an old, you guessed it, vault. This teeny space was less than 200 square feet and housed a handful of products on shelves custom-built using copper pipes reclaimed from The Basement. With just one shop employee helping Michelle (when she wasn’t working her full-time Marketing job), this little space was home for retail operations but also product production. Everything from lip balms to hand soaps and face masks to bath bombs was created in this space, by these two. The Vault was where many of our customers first met us, drawn in by the smells emanating from this concrete cave. People tentatively walked in, discovered what we were doing, and selected products to try out. These same people still visit us today and have been crucial in the growth Pantry has experienced.  It was in this space that our photographer, Abbey Kay, first discovered our hand soap + coffee body polish + was instantly hooked.

Within a matter of months, we out grew our beloved (but limited) Vault. When a shop space in The Basement offering better visibility, running water, a closet, and 2 windows (this is huge in a basement) opened up around the corner from The Vault, we didn’t hesitate to snag it up. It was larger than The Vault which allowed us to increase our production capabilities, grow our product line, and increase our staff. It also meant more room for new + existing customers to peruse our handmade wares.

Since we were able to offer more products in this space, we kept dreaming,  growing, and coming up with new ways to push the limits of what we thought Pantry Products could be and achieve. We also enjoyed inventing new ways to decorate our favorite feature: the window light well. It’s seen everything from hay stacks and pumpkins to a fully decorate Christmas tree and 7′ inflated flamingo floatie resting on hundreds of beach balls.  It’s still one of our highlights of this space.

In 2018, we moved into our second Reno location on Wells Avenue. This space was nearly four times the size of our store inside The Basement + it was key in helping to again expand the production side of Pantry Products.  This new space allows to house more back stock to meet the demand from our retail and wholesale customers, provides a private space to host our workshops, + a roomy place to create more products.

 

Our next adventure will be opening up shop in Detroit, Michigan where boss lady Michelle was raised. We are so excited to head back to her roots + to share the Pantry Products we love with the city that she loves. Who says you can’t go home again?

We’ve enjoyed being a part of your lives over the years + we can’t wait to add even more joy to your home through clean products. Stay tuned to see what’s next!

An essential oil is a natural oil that is derived from a plant or flower for its scent or healing properties and, when the right kinds of oils are blended together, they can do magnificent things for our well being. Awareness of essential oils has become popular over the past few years, but they have been used for generations as a remedy to all types of maladies.

At Pantry Products, we employ essential oils in every product we craft because they offer a healthy + natural remedy to common afflictions that attempt to disrupt our every day lives. Today, we’re highlighting our line of Roller Ball Remedies Essential Oil Blends + sharing how you can employ these lovely oils as part of your daily routine.

 

When Life Gives You Oils, Roll With It!

Sometimes life hands you things you can’t control. Headaches, bug bites, cramps, sore muscles + colds are something none of us want to deal with, but, lucky for you, we have solutions to help you roll with it!

Long day at work or long day of being active? Reach for our Aches + Pains Roller Ball to help soothe soreness away anywhere you have stiffness and discomfort.

A headache is no one’s friend. The blend of basil + peppermint oils in our Noggin Healer Roller Ball will help to relieve the pounding with just a few swipes across your forehead + temples. 

Pestered by pesky bugs? The Bite Me! Roller Ball is a perfect bug bite soother after those troublesome buggers take a bite out of your skin + your joy. Simply roll it on the bite + say goodbye to itching and scratching.

Enjoy the weather, don’t feel under it with our Force Field Roller Ball. Apply this immunity-boosting blend to your pulse points to help prevent catching a case of the cooties.

All of us ladies know how miserable we can feel when that “time of the month” arrives. Pack away the pain pills and heating pads and reaching for our Happy Cramper Roller Ball instead! It also is helpful with unpleasant lower back pain, as well.

Peace, Sleep + Rock n’ Rollin’

Do you ever feel just a little out of it, unfocused, and/or sleep deprived? Well, with the help of the next four roller balls we might be able to fix that.

If you’ve sworn off your morning caffeine or need an extra boost of energy to start (or continue) the day, our Rise + Shine Roller Ball helps to lift that morning fog so you can start your day out right.

If that tired feeling is the result of a less-than-restful sleep, incorporate our Sweet Dreams Roller Ball into your nighttime routine. Apply this slumber inducer to your temples, wrists, or right under your nose to help welcome in sweet sleep.

Feeling a little anxious? Our Serenity Now Roller Ball was custom-formulated to help promote peace + balance. So, brew up your favorite tea, grab a good book + roll it on to get back in balance.

Sometimes though, you’re ready to check things off your to-do list like yesterday. That’s when our Get Sh*t Done Roller Ball comes in handy. It is the perfect blend of essential oils to help boost your focus so you can cross off those items on your to-do list. 

Rollin’ On The Oils

Aging, wrinkles + scars should be carried with pride because they mean you have a story to tell. But, sometimes we need to give these areas a little TLC. This is where our beauty-focused roller balls come in handy. Our Fountain of Youth Roller Ball features healing and skin-cell rejuvenating oils to targets age spots + reduce the appearance of wrinkles over time.

The Ain’t Scarred Roller Ball is our scar reducer blend of rosehip, argan + essential oils that will help fresh scar to heal quicker and healthier. Over time, the oil will assist with fading the visibility of those battle wounds.

For those of you who suffer with fever blisters + cold sores, fight back with our No’ Mo’ Cold Sore Roller Ball. Packed with anti-fungal, anti-bacterial + anti-microbial essential oils, this roller remedy will quickly become your best friend!

Read what some of our customers have to say about our Roller Ball Remedies Essential Oil Blends:

“The Aches & Pains roller ball is amazing! As someone who has used multiple medications for headaches, natural remedies, and even visits to a neurologist, this stuff works and it works fast! I would recommend for migraines, headaches, even sinus pressure. This is the BEST.”        – Christine

“I bought happy cramper last month when my cramps were keeping me in bed all day. I had taken pain killers galore and they did nothing, but as soon as I put on happy cramper, my pain was relieved! I have never been more pleased with a product. Anyone who is concerned with the price for a small roller ball: don’t be! it is so worth it. Highly recommend!!!!!”      – Samantha 

Without a doubt, we have a roller ball remedy for just about any hurdle life throws your way and, if we don’t, just ask us. We love to create custom remedies for our fans.

Sea Salt Soak | Natural Bath Salts

Life can be so busy at times. We take care of our own lives by doing the typical “adulting” responsibilities like paying bills, cooking, working, cleaning, exercising, and then we also tend to take care of those around us. We help a friend in need. We tend to our kids when they’re sick. We bring meal to a loved one during a hard time. We volunteer at local shelters. We show up for those around us. But when was the last time you took a moment to stop and think about taking care of yourself? We know you don’t have all the time in the world, nobody does. But we’re here to remind you that taking care of yourself helps you to better take care of those around you.

Below are some simple ways to treat yourself through self-care techniques and natural products:

Soak Away the Stress

Our skin can always use a little extra TLC and, at Pantry Products, we have some lovely products to help you take care of you…naturally. Draw up a warm bath and pour in one of our many bath time treats like the Warming Chai Milk Bath or the Pretty In Pink Sea Salt Soak. Or, if loads of suds is more your cup of tea, slip into a tub of bubbles courtesy of our I Like Big Bubbles & I Cannot Lie.

While you’re soaking away, treat your skin to one of our Clay Masks and your hair to our Organic Coconut & Honey Hair Masque. Your face will be toned, exfoliated and cleanser and your locks will be hydrated and happy. Team these tub-time treats with your favorite drink or book to really start relaxing. We can see the stress melting away already.

Can You Smell The Love Tonight?

Remember how we talked about not having all the time in the world? We get that. Here are a few ways to freshen up the air around you in just a few quick minutes.

Use our Air + Linen Spray around your living room or office to quickly enhance the air that you’re breathing. Simple, effective, clean.

Want to really set a special mood? Light one of our Hand Poured Soy Candles in your bedroom, living room, or bathroom to fill the space with heavenly aromas. Our 16 oz. candles feature a crackling wood wick to really bring on cozy vibes.  

 

Treat Yo’ Hands + Feet

We use our hands and feet every single day, but do we actually take care of them? Well, we should be. Whether it’s a quick treatment before bed or in between emails and meetings, there are so many quick and easy ways to treat our appendages. With harsh winter upon us, it’s the ideal time to show them some love.

Our Gardener’s Hand Salve is a great healer of dry, cracked hands and heels. Bonus, the essential oil blend featuring rose, lavender, and chamomile conjure up memories of warm summer days.

Looking for a little exfoliation with your hydration? Grab a jar of our Body Polish.  The combination of sugar and oils smooth out + hydrate dry hands as well as chapped lips, flaky legs, and any other body part that could use a little love.

Are you cuticles looking red and ragged? Give them some extra love with our Nail & Cuticle Essential Oil. The blend of nourishing sweet almond and jojoba oil combined with healing essential oils will heal those babies in a jiffy!

Lastly, take care of those tootsies with our Peppermint Foot Salve . It is a must for hydrating your feet and can be done while you sleep. We don’t think it gets any easier than that!

Natural Sunburn Treatment

Self-Love Activities

We know that not everybody’s ideal relaxation is sitting still. Some of us unwind by being active. Don’t worry, we see you too!

For our yoga loving pals, book that class or take 30 minutes to breathe on your mat at home. Either way, don’t forget to use our Yoga Room & Mat Spray to keep your mat and space smelling fresh.

If being one with nature is how you choose to pause and reflect then grab our outdoor products to protect, prevent, and soothe you from Nature’s delights. Our SPF 30 Sunscreen Stick is easy to apply and naturally protects you from harmful rays using coconut oil, beeswax, non-nano zinc, and carrot seed oil.

Protect your precious lips from winter’s harsh realities with our Hand Poured Lip Balms. With so many delicious flavors, there’s no excuse for chapped lips.

After your outdoor adventure is complete, treat your body to our Soothing Arnica Muscle Salve. Infused with arnica flowers, cayenne pepper, and ginger, it’s the ideal balm to help relax those burning muscles.

We hope we’ve helped you realize how easy it is to pamper yourself naturally and at home using Pantry Products. At Pantry Products, our focus is to make products that help you take care of you. We develop and handcraft goods that are plant-based with a purpose, that are good for you, and for the world around you.  So, while life may get a tad bit busy, remember that it’s easy to stop, even if just for a moment, treat yourself to some love and self-care!

Is it just us or does it seem like there’s a crispness to the air now that September is here? Trust us, while we hate to say goodbye to sweet summer, it’s always so nice to get to welcome in fall. Its burst of color + piling on extra layers is like a big warm hug. Fall makes us giddy to get cozy and to indulge in all the new scents that it brings. Think chai + cardamom, vanilla + cinnamon, clove + nutmeg. Ooooh, all those wonderful autumn spices. Are you feeling fall too? Let us spice up your life + your home with our 100% all-natural fall essential goodies. From our soy candles to our body polishes, we have everything you need to kick off the start of fall.

 

Spice up the Bathroom

There’s nothing more soothing than nicely scented air, so try out our Air + Linen Spray in scents like Cardamom + Clove or even Vanilla + Spice to make your bathroom, bedroom, really anywhere in your home,  a relaxing spot. Spray some into the air in between bathroom visits or even before you hop into the shower to create a relaxing vibe.

Warm up those chilly fall showers with our Autumn Spice Body Polish. It was literally made for this time of year!

And why not grab some Cardamom + Clove scented hand soap that we just know your guests will love using all season long. Also available in Vanilla + Clove, Orange + Clove, and Vanilla + Spice too!

Cozy in the Home

Nothing says fall more like pumpkin chocolate chip cookies baking in the oven + candles lit while you wait for them to bake. Our Soy candles that are made in house & we think that our Salted Rain or Autumn Harvest scent is perfect for those cloud covered days that are always so mesmerizing.

While, we are pretty obsessed with lattes, we are more obsessed with our Spiced Chai handpoured lip balm. Keep those kissers hydrated while you breathe in the scent of the best fall drink around (sorry, PSL).

And what better way to get your hands ready for the dryness of winter than to treat them to our Coconut + Chai Lotion.

The Gift That Keeps On Giving

You can find both in our Reno locations, inside The Basement + over on Wells. Our favorite combo is the Vanilla + Spice Hand Lotion, the Autumn Spice Body Polish, & the Cardamom + Clove Hand Soap.

Over here at Pantry we absolutely love this time of year, whether it’s taking Lou for an evening walk, heading up to beautiful Lake Tahoe for a cooling dip, floating our full as can be Truckee River, or heading for a quick drive up to beloved Truckee, we can’t get enough of this season! And of course, we never leave our faithful Pantry Products behind during any of these adventures. Take a look below at our favorite ways that you can bring Pantry along while you have some fun in the sun this summer!

Natural Sunburn Treatment

Who doesn’t love a lake day? If you didn’t raise your hand that’s probably because you’re one of those people who gets sun burnt even sitting in the shade! Well, we’ve got you covered, literally! Our Sunscreen Stick is a perfect & easy way to apply protection to your skin while you’re basking in the summer sun. Say good-bye to red skin & the painful days following that always seemed so inevitable. And if you do happen to get just a little bit too much sun, we after an Cooling After-Sun Spray that is sure to soothe that skin & get it back to feeling %100 again. A good & long oatmeal bath will help too!

Our Himalayan Sea Salt Hair + Body Spray is perfect for those desirable beach curls that aren’t always easy to get. Now, it’ll be a breeze to get the look! You’re welcome.

Adventures with your pup are a hard thing to pass up during the summer months. They love it. You love it. Everybody loves it.

Lucky for you, we have a Dirty Dog Wash that’ll do the trick of being opposite it’s name & getting your dog nice & clean & ready for a summer snooze. We also have an all-natural Dog Deodorant to help keep your pup smelling good during the high rising heat.

We hope you enjoy summer & have a Happy 4th of July! Be sure to stop in & see us at our Wells Ave. location or come on down to The Basement! And follow along on our Instagram to see how we’ll be celebrating Independence Day this year!

XO – The Pantry Team

Happy May! This month we have so many things to be happy about. We are opening our first Pantry Products store on the East Coast in Brooklyn! This is a dream come true & just the start of Pantry taking over the country & eventually the world! Just kidding, but we really are excited! We are also loving this gorgeous Reno weather & can’t wait to spend sunny days on the Truckee River & at Lake Tahoe. May & springtime offer such a fresh perspective on the things going on around us. So we thought it’d be fun to share with you all today our teams perspective on our freshly made Pantry Products. Keep reading to check out the Pantry team’s favorite products & why we love em’!

Nicole, Operations Manager

So hard for me to narrow down as so many of the products have been effective on my skin. Prior to using Pantry’s clay masks, I was spending upwards of $70 on a charcoal mask from Sephora, that I maybe got 10 masks out of. I love Pantry’s Activated Charcoal Mask because, not only do you get around 30-40 masks out of a single jar, but it allows for so much creativity! I’ve mixed mine with Greek yogurt, honey, warm tea, etc. I also love that instead of doing a full face mask, I could do little spot treatments and make the consistency thicker or thinner depending on how badly my skin needs it. I’m a girl who loves quality and quantity which is exactly what these masks provide!

Caitlin, Community Ambassador

One of my favorites is the Garden of Love Body Polish. I have really dry skin, so the polish moisturizes while it exfoliates. Plus, you step out of the shower smelling like Spring!

Michelle, Owner

How do I select one product?? That’s like asking my Mom to pick her favorite child (Me! Sorry, boys!) Maybe I can narrow it down to a couple… Our Oil Cleanser changed my skincare world. I have always despised washing my face. The soap in the eyes, the splashing water, the rush after to apply lotion after, and the inevitable oiliness afterwards. The first time I used it, I was smitten. My pores were clear, my skin felt clean AND hydrated, and I wasn’t soaked from all the splashing. My second choice would be our Lavender + Ylang Ylang Deodorant. I sweat a bit. Whether I’m hot or cold, active or sedentary. Since controlling sweat wasn’t a concern for me, I’ve been seeking out the best deodorant for years…without luck. I am continually amazed by the deo we created. Not only do I smell and feel fresh throughout the day but I actually sweat less! And, added bonus, no ridiculously painful rash from baking soda irritation.

Taylor, Shop Assistant

I’m obsessed with everything in the store, but recently the Makeup Primer + Setting Mist has been consistently finding its way back into my routine. It’s cooling, smells soooo good, and gets the job done!

Caleb, Shop Assistant (not pictured)

My favorite Pantry product is the Gardener’s Hand Salve. I use it on my calluses from CrossFit, and it helps me go back 6 days a week without blisters or cuts on my hands! Plus you can’t beat the long lasting softness.

Abbey Kay, Photographer


I have loved using & trying out so many different Pantry Products since 2015. But my absolute favorites that I use every day are the Dry Shampoo in Raven, the Air & Linen Spray in Lavender & Lemon, & the All-Natural Hand Soap in Orange & Clove. I am super sensitive to certain scents & can often get headaches from them being too much, but all three of these scents are subtle enough to be used in my daily routine.

Elle, Operations Assistant


My favorite Pantry Product is the Noggin Healer: Headache Relief Roller Ball. I get headaches almost every other day, and I used to constantly be taking medication for it (which I hated having to do). However, this product oftentimes works better than the medication, actually soothing the headache quickly and completely, plus it’s all-natural!!

 Dena, Shop Assistant
 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

For me, every Pantry product is my favorite. So I will narrow it down to my top 3 essentials. The Cedar Lemongrass Deodorant; keeping it real and fresh all at the same time. I love the Nighttime Repair Serum; Rich in aroma and nourishment. Full of multiple essential oils for the health and vibrancy of the skin. I use it day or night and sometimes on the ends of my hair. And the Bare Bones Laundry Detergent. Clean and simple. Laundry has never felt so good and my hand washables feel extra pure.

What’s your favorite Pantry Product? We would love to know, so tell us below! And be sure to follow the behind the scenes of the opening of our Brooklyn store here & here!

Have a great day!
