This week’s Quarantine Beauty Routine Recipes are for healing your feet and sunburned shoulders after spending hours walking in the sun protesting. Here’s what you’ll need:⁠

“Pep in your step” – Peppermint Foot Scrub:⁠
• 1-2 cups sugar or epsom salt⁠
• 1/2 cup coconut oil, grapeseed oil, or olive oil⁠
• 10 drops peppermint essential oil or fresh peppermint⁠

Mix all your ingredients together and pour into a jar. (If you are using fresh peppermint, you may want to grind it up first.) You can use more or less sugar until you’re happy with the consistency. Using more sugar will result in a more firm scrub. Store for up to 6 months. Use once a week in a foot bath or prior to showering.

Healing Aloe Lotion:⁠
• 1/4 cup coconut oil⁠
• 1/4 cup almond oil or other carrier oil⁠
• 1/4 cup aloe vera gel or 1 medium sized aloe leaf⁠
• 5 drops lavender and frankincense essential oil (optional)⁠

If you are using fresh aloe vera, cut and clean it first. Blend into a gel. Combine your aloe vera gel with the almond oil and coconut oil. and blend using a hand mixer for 8-10 minutes. This will make the lotion airy and light. Once it is light and buttery, add any essential oils you are using. Store for 3-4 months in the fridge and reapply as necessary.

A DIY banana face mask your skin will love you for – SheKnows

• 1 Tbsp. baking soda⁠
• 1/2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice⁠

• 1 Tbsp yogurt⁠
• 1/2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice⁠

Facial steams can deeply cleanse your skin, promote collagen production (anti-aging!), remove toxins, rid blackheads and whiteheads, hydrate the skin, prevent sinus problems, and much more, making them the perfect product to make for our Quarantine Beauty Routine Series! ?

When creating your tea steam medley, the options are endless! We’ve listed 3 recipes below, but you can use any combination of teas and herbs you prefer.

• Lemon Peel and Chamomile Tea: The citric acid found in lemon peels helps to cleanse and brighten skin. Chamomile is known as a lightening + relaxation agent. Use this facial steam before bedtime, or any other time you need to relax.
• Basil and Black Tea: Basil has skin-soothing and calming properties, + also reduces inflammation, making it a great choice to reduce puffiness. Black tea is an astringent, helping to fight oily and dirty skin. It’s also a good source of antioxidants, which help reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
• Green Tea, Chamomile Tea, and Lemon Slices: Green tea has the same astringent and antioxidant powers as black tea, but comes with an invigorating and energizing boost. For an added boost, add in a few drops of rose and jasmine essential oils for help evening skin tone, smoothing skin, and anti-aging.

Step 1: Prep your skin. Remove all makeup and tie your hair away from the face.

Step 2: Bring 4 cups of water to a boil in a saucepan.

Step 3: Once your water is boiling, add your ingredients and remove from heat.

Step 4: The fun part! Cover your head with a towel and lean over your pot. Keep a safe distance—the steam should not hurt your skin. Your steam sesh can last anywhere between 15 and 30 minutes.

This Quarantine Beauty Routine is all about Hand Masks.

Hand masks work just like face masks. They infuse and trap moisture, nutrients, or other benefits into the skin. Here are two separate recipes for keeping your hands nourished:

Potato Hand Mask:
– 1 small potato, peeled
– 1 Tbsp olive oil
Place the small potato in a medium pot and cover with water. Place over high heat and bring to a boil. Allow the potato to boil for 5-10 minutes, or until you can easily pierce it with a fork. Remove and drain. Allow the potato to cool and mash it with a fork in a small bowl. Add in the olive oil to form a thick paste. Apply the mask to your hands in a circular motion and allot it to sit for 15+ minutes. Rinse off, pat dry, and follow up with a hand cream.

Avocado Hand Mask:
– 1/2 avocado
– 1 egg white
– 2 Tbsp of oats
– 1 Tbsp lemon juice
Mix all ingredients in a bowl, forming a thick paste. Apply the mask and allow it to sit for 20+ minutes.Rinse off, pat dry, and follow up with a hand cream.

Quarantine Beauty Routine recipe time ?. This go around we’re treating your hair to a quick and easy Apple Cider Vinegar Hair Rinse that will leave it shiny + silky. ⁠

Apple cider vinegar does wonders for the hair. It helps maintain moisture, detangles, stimulates hair growth, removes product + chemical buildup, restores pH, soothes itchy and dry scalp, and makes your hair shine. Pretty exciting, right?⁠ (Love the idea of this product but not into DIY? Grab a bottle of Pantry’s Scalp Therapy!)

For this recipe you’ll need:⁠
• 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar⁠
• 1/2 cup water⁠
• 3 drops lavender essential oil or infused lavender (optional)⁠
• 3 drops rosemary essential oil or infused rosemary (optional)⁠
• A spray bottle⁠

How to use:⁠
• Mix all of the ingredients and add them to your spray bottle.⁠
• Keep it in the shower, and shampoo as normal.⁠
• Spray a generous amount into your hair and massage. ⁠
• Let it sit for a few minutes then quickly, not thoroughly, rinse it out. ⁠

Use around 3 times a week in place of conditioner. Your hair will smell of vinegar while it’s wet, but you won’t smell it once your hair is dry. ⁠

It’s time for another Quarantine Beauty Routine DIY! ?⁠

For our second recipe, we’re doing another face mask! For this mask, you’re going to want to save those coffee grounds in the morning, because this is an Eggs + Coffee Grounds mask! ☕⁠ (Love coffee but not into DIY? Grab a tub of Pantry’s Choco + Coffee Body Polish)

Eggs are great for deep cleansing treatments and the protein is good for firming up your skin. The egg whites will even help to shrink or tighten pores. The caffeine in the coffee works as a constrictor to reduce swelling and inflammation. When mixed together, these ingredients will preserve and renew your skin with protein and nutrients. If you don’t like the idea of using eggs, simply substitute a tablespoon of raw honey for the egg. ?⁠

Here’s what you’ll need:⁠
1 whole egg⁠
1 T fine coffee grounds⁠

Combine the egg with the coffee grounds. Gently massage the mask onto your face, in circular motions, avoiding your eyes. This will gently exfoliate your skin and remove dead cells off the surface. Leave on for about five minutes. Wash your face thoroughly and pat dry with a clean towel. (Pro-tip: If you still have coffee grounds left over, use them to scrub your body in the shower!) ⁠

Do you know how we got our name, Pantry Products? Before we had production space and bulk ingredients and our local shops, Michelle was whipping up natural products for her friends + family with ingredients from… you guessed it… her kitchen pantry! ?⁠

We’re heading back to our roots and teaching you all how to treat yourself with ingredients that are hiding in your kitchen, in a new series we’re calling “Quarantine Beauty Routine!” These recipes will be quick + easy ways to have some fun and pamper yourself without leaving the house.⁠

This time, we’ll be teaching you how to make a lemon and baking soda face mask. ? Lemon balances the skin, leaving you with a natural glow. It also has antibacterial and anti-fungal properties and can brighten up dark spots over time. The baking soda will act as a powerful microdermabrasion and leave you with healthy, radiant, glowing skin. ? (Love this sound of this but not into DIY? Grab a tub of Pantry’s Honey + Lemon Exfoliating Face Scrub). ⁠

Here’s what you’ll need:⁠
• 1/2 lemon⁠
• 2 Tbsp. baking soda⁠

Start by cutting your lemon in half. Slowly sprinkle the baking soda over the sliced half. Gently rub the lemon half over your face in circular motions for about 10 minutes (be careful around your eyes!) Wash your face thoroughly and pat dry with a clean towel. If you’d like, you can also mix the lemon juice and baking soda in a bowl to form a paste, and apply that mixture directly to your skin. ⁠

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!
