About Sunflower Acres:


I have finally found one name for everything that I make, and grow. Since the Sunflowers were here when we bought the land, it is only right to call it Sunflower Acres.

I am determined to make everything we use on a daily basis out of natural ingredients, and share it with co-op members. We have so many toxic chemicals forced on us every day, at least I can eliminate the toxins in the products I use and sell.

In my mission to lead a less toxic, self sufficient lifestyle, I started making natural soap. Handcrafted Enchanted Rain Soap and *Shampoo Bars, and Salt Bars are our latest addition. I'm very excited to offer Cold and Hot process lye soap made the old way, with pure rain water from our rain barrels, made on the tailgate of my truck when weather permits. Also natural Shampoo Bars with shea butter and hair-nourishing luxury oils made with the hot process. In my quest to make natural conditioner, I designed a great recipe for shampoo bars. Now my hair is cleaner, grew longer and rarely needs conditioner, problem solved!

*Please help share my Kickstarter link if you have time: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/962336836/rainwater-shampoo-bar-and-beer-salt-bar-soap. I am expanding my business. It runs until June 29, 2017. Thank you!

*We accept Special Custom Orders on hot process Dark Side Beer, Chamomile Shampoo Bars, Lemon Grass Shampoo Bars, Pina Colada Shampoo Bars, or Salt Bars with a minimum purchase of 8 bars. They will be ready by the next order cycle. Contact me if you are interested.

Other natural products I make include: Calendula and Comfrey Oil, Natural Deodorant, Whipped Calendula Shea Butter, Natural Autumn Spice All Purpose Cleaner, Powdered Laundry Detergent. I also offer Healthy Pooch DIY Dog Treat Mix, Herb and Flower Seeds, Trees, DIY Seed Packet Kits, DIY Mini Survival Stove eBooks, actual Mini Survival Stoves, Soda Can Lanterns, and branch bird feeders.

I started making dog treats for my old German Shorthair, Earl (The Duke of Earl was his real name), to be sure he gets nutrition in his diet. Old Earl has left us now. Our Pom, Little Bear just couldn't get enough of them, and he was a very, very picky eater!

We now have Dog Treat Mix, so you can make them yourself if you want to save money and have a fun family baking day. You can add any flavor you have on hand: Chicken, Beef, Veggies, Fish, (try not to use Tuna, studies have found unsafe levels of Mercury in to many of the cans tested), Salmon, or Mackerel. The mix will make 1 1/2 pounds or more. Cut them in fun shapes or just use a pizza cutter to cut squares.

According to the ASPCA website, dogs need 3 food groups in their diet: Meat, Grains, & Vegetables. To find out more information on care and feeding you can go to aspca.org. You will see which foods are good and bad for our 4 legged friends. They say treats should only consist of 10% of your pets diet.

I now have some fun recycled products:

I am always trying to think of new ways to recycle.
Organic Wheatgrass planted in recycled soda bottles for a mini greenhouse.
Mini Survival stoves made from recycled Soda cans and DIY eBooks to make you own Mini Stove with wire stand for preppers, power outages, emergencies, camping, hiking, etc.
Soda Can Light, or mini eBook to make as many as you want. Great for power outages, camping, or relaxing on the deck.
DIY Seed Packet Kits you can make from seed catalogs, gift wrap, or greeting cards
Denim planters from recycled jeans
Leg Warmers and Infinity Scarves made from recycled sweaters, seasonal

General Practices:

Seeds, Live Plants, and Trees:
No chemicals are ever used on any of the plants. Sometimes we add Fish emulsion or Kelp and crushed eggshells to the plants to recycle, and give the plants nutrition. They are also fed home made fertilizer with dry Banana peels and dried farm fresh egg shells.

Laundry Detergent and Autumn Spice All Purpose Cleaner: In order to help the environment, the containers are different size recycled laundry jugs. Our natural laundry detergent is safe for septic systems, front loading and HE washing machines, and the environment.

Homemade Soap/Shampoo Bars: Made with natural ingredients, and we recycle just about everything here, including rainwater to make our soap! However, due to popular demand and to offer fragrances that Nature does not provide, I am adding a few soaps and shampoo bars with fragrance oils in our 'Mostly Natural' line.

Everything I make is first tested on us, never on animals, for quality before offering for sale. If you are not happy with anything, please let us know. And if you are, let us know too!

* Seed SALE! Save money on seeds, stock up for planting season.

$5.97 / Jar All Natural refrigerated
New recipe, lower price! Here is the perfect combination of natural ingredients to help moisturize and control body odor, without harmful chemicals using a softer, creamy recipe.

Contains no Almuminum Chlorohydrate: According to the cosmetics database, in one or more studies has shown strong evidence of Neurotoxicity, and classified as; expected to be toxic or harmful, and as a primary skin irritant. It is used in most commercial deodorants, so I made my own.

Fragrance Free Cream Deodorant is made from the finest herbal ingredients available: Organic Coconut oil, Cocoa Butter, Beeswax, Pure Olive Oil infused with Calendula, Arrowroot, Baking Soda, Corn Starch, and smells like coconut. Natural Coconut oil scent over powers the beeswax and cocoa butter, a nice blend.

Calendula, has been used for thousands of years for its natural healing qualities
Coconut oil is a natural way to keep a creamy texture
Olive oil, also high in vitamins and minerals and is good for skin cell regeneration
Baking Soda and Corn Starch help control odors (we know this from using Baking Soda in our refrigerators)
Safe to use on sensitive skin and after shaving
No Aluminum Chlorohydrate, no chemicals/perfumes, no added fragrance

Our deodorant is easy to use: apply a small amount to underarms or feet with your finger or cotton ball. May be used by Men or Women.

Sold in new 2 oz. clear plastic low profile cosmetic jars, 1 jar

Testimonial: "I really love the stuff you guys are making...the scent is the perfect blend, not too overwhelming and not so faint that you don't notice it. My only feedback would be that during the colder months maybe you could make it a little...softer?" Elizabeth, NE. I am taking her advice and making it softer and more creamy, but the Cocoa Butter does not always soften in real cold weather. This new recipe stays soft and creamy in cold weather.

If you do not use air conditioning it will liquefy. Not a real problem, but it should be stirred and kept cool. Refrigerated only for delivery in hot weather.

7170 2 Dark Beer Shampoo Bar Soap*Awesome Unisex Scent*Round Bar
$5.80 / Bar All Natural non-refrigerated
Handcrafted luxury Shampoo Bar is great for any hair type, smells great, and you may not need to wash your hair as often. Your hair will be cleaner with no detergent residue to grab dirt in the air, and may also be used as an exfoliating soap that will leave you squeaky clean. Can you remember when you last experienced squeaky clean? Get ready, this will do it.

This Beer Shampoo Bar is the best so far for my long fine hair, but is great for any hair type. It turns out clean and healthy, maybe even fuller.

Benefits of homemade shampoo bars: Toxin-free, no SLS, no detergents. Commercial shampoo is basically detergent that strips the natural oils and adds toxic chemicals. Which is fine for your car, but not your hair.

Our luxury shampoo bars leave hair and skin feeling clean, manageable with no soapy residue, and rinse out easily. Some do not need conditioner after shampooing, including me. My hair is past my waist and used to get so tangled, combing it out used to pull tons of hair out. Not any more! Now I don't need conditioner.

Ingredients: Pure rainwater, Dark Side Vanilla Porter Beer, hair-nourishing oils; Olive oil, Coconut oil, Vegetable oil, raw Shea Butter, Castor oil (for healthy hair and more lather), sodium hydroxide (lye), Powdered Milk, Wheat Germ, Fragrance. Lye soap has come a long way since our Grandmother's days.

There is no lye left in the soap after the saponification process.

One (1) bar, Weight 3-4 oz. Round bar makes it easy to hold in your hand.

To use: Wet hair with warm water (not hot) rub shampoo bar in a few circles into hair and scalp. Massage and rinse. Repeat if necessary. Warm water is best, as hot water will strip natural oils and dry your hair out. These are great for kids and for traveling ... No shampoo bottles to spill all over.

Testimonial from a customer I sent a sample to:
"I have used the beer soap for 3 days now and it is so wonderful!! My husband stole it from me, and has been using it as shampoo and body wash, and dang him, it is nearly gone already, he loved it, and told me we will be buying some!! How do you sell them, individually or as a pack, because we are buy it by the pack people. I don't know how much of it you have but I think we just became your regulars, lol! He was like, this smells so good, and it feels wonderful! I love how it smells and how I feel super clean after I use it. It doesn't dry out my hair at all : )" Ashley F. Indiana

"I love all of your soap and shampoo bars!!!
I've noticed far less hair falling out since I've been using your shampoo bar, and my hair feels so clean!!! It's great!!"

Recent Testimonials:
"Good morning:
I just wanted to let you know that I ordered one bar of the shampoo listed above through Nebraska Food Co-op and, oh my, I am in love. I am a senior citizen and my hair is thinning, very fine, little body, and kind of a dull blonde. This shampoo bar has given my hair more body, the dullness is gone, and because of this, my hair doesn't look so thin. What a wonderful product. I am sure I will be ordering again and thinking I will get these for my daughters and granddaughter for stocking stuffers this Christmas. They all are blondes also and I think they will love this as much as I do. Thanks for a great product."
Judy, NE Coop Member

"More quotes from Sally’s sister in Naples, FL:
That beautiful soap is almost alive. It has such a sculptural texture, like it had been kneaded like bread dough! I can put a little on my hands and do my short hair and do a complete wash, it is so rich.
Best, Smokey"

5581 5 Natural Hand Sanitizer Thieves Oil*Smells Great*4oz. Fine Spray
$6.70 / bottle All Natural non-refrigerated
When you are out and about, sometimes good old soap and water are not available, so you turn to hand sanitizer. I have been wanting to make my own natural hand sanitizer for a long time after reading how toxic the ingredients are, and that they are not effective in killing all germs. When the small bottle of sanitizer in our van ran out, it was time to stop putting it off. Finally, after some research its ready.

The essential oils in Thieves oil are known for their disinfecting and antibacterial properties. The legend tells about 4 spice merchants that lost their trading business due to the Black plague. Knowing the beneficial properties of each spice, they rubbed them on their bodies and were able to rob others of valuables and avoid the plague. The King captured them and forced them to tell him how they were protected from the plague. This is how Thieves oil started, so they say.

Ingredients: Filtered well water, Thieves Inspired Essential oil, pure Aloe Vera gel and low alcohol Witch Hazel. The reason for the lower alcohol content is that I have read stories of young kids being admitted to the hospital for intoxication from hand sanitizer, and some teens actually drink it, wow!

Sold in a 4 oz. Cobalt Blue fine mist spray bottle.

To use: Spray on hands 1-2 times and rub hands together. It doesn't take much, so this should last a while (I hope).

Testimonial: "We all love your hand sanitizer, it smells so clean and makes my hands feel soft. I like the fact that it is all natural. I would like to order 3 more for my daughters and granddaughter." Evelyn C. NE

3399 22 Insect Repellent All Natural*Home/Garden & You*4 Oz.Bottle*Personal Size
$6.42 / bottle All Natural non-refrigerated
I have been testing and refining this homemade insect repellent in my house for those tiny gnats that love all the plants. I spray it on the curtains near the plants and the gnats do not like it at all! They leave immediately, so did a trail of tiny ants outside the back door and in our mailbox. I do not spray it directly on the plants, it will harm them. I leave a kleenex between pots and spray the repellent on them daily. The mailbox only took a few squirts and the ants never returned.

It may be used around doors, floor boards, lightly in cabinets and pantry if there are no open food containers. Just one spray in the corners and then close the door seems to work well.

Use on clothing (do a test area first) and safe for the skin (refreshing and smells great) as a mild insect repellent, plus it cools you off. It has been keeping Mosquitoes away from me in the garden and cools me off. I forgot to use it one day picking beans and came in with 10 bites in 15 minutes! When I use it, 0 bites.

A couple years ago at Junk Stock I offered free sprays to customers, and sold out first day. They loved it!

Since it is all natural, you will need to reapply more often than chemical sprays.

Some commercial insect repellents contain DEET. Deet sprays can melt plastic bags and fishing lines. Does that make you wonder what it can do to your skin? I just read that DEET can interact with medications and other skin care products that contain chemicals such as make up, deodorant (not ours though), and sunscreen.

Made with filtered well water, Vinegar, Tea Tree, Citronella, Peppermint, and Lemongrass essential oils. No harmful chemicals, no DEET.

One (1) White plastic 4 ounce personal size fine mist spray bottle. Take it with you anywhere.

Also available in large 32 oz. spray bottles.

I have read that Women who are pregnant or nursing should not use Tea Tree essential oil so I cannot recommend it for you, sorry. Be safe. Also beware of chemical insect repellents:) Check with your health care professional about rubbing Catnip on your skin, as it helps repel insects.

7505 2 Whipped Calendula Shea Body Butter 2 oz. Jar
$5.99 / Jar All Natural non-refrigerated
Thick creamy, unscented, totally natural blend of Calendula Oil whipped into Pure Unrefined Shea Butter. In my opinion, the best combination there is for dry skin!

We start by infusing Calendula petals in Pure Olive oil in the sun for several weeks, then whip it into raw Shea Butter.

Our whipped Calendula Body Butter is perfect for hydrating dry skin, wrinkles, and stretch marks. I have read that is is great to condition hair, but have not tried it on my hair. My hair is very fine, it would be better for thick curly fly-away hair. I love it for dry hands and feet.

No fragrance, chemicals or preservatives added.

5681 3 Laundry Detergent White Zote*More Whitening Power*SPECIAL SALE*
$6.50 / bag Production not specified non-refrigerated
Special Sale, stock up and save money!

New handmade detergent made with White Zote soap! The package says More Whitening Power, and it smells great.

The website states it contains Citronella and Lime for a fresh scent. It is said to be safe for the environment and smells awesome.

Here is some information I found on Zote soap:

"MAIN INGREDIENTS

The main ingredients are beef tallow and coconut oil, which are neutralized with caustic soda for the saponification process. It contains salt (sodium chloride), glycerin, fragrance, and optical brightener.

OPTICAL BRIGHTENER

ZOTE soap contains an optical brightener which bleaches clothes without fading their color. Optical brighteners are the compounds providing clothes with brightness. Their function is to absorb light with certain wave lengths in the washed garments and thus reflecting a visible blue; its work is most noticeable in white clothes.

Their website states, "It has no toxicity problems."

I like the fact that their website states no toxicity problems. My homemade soap doesn't have them either but it is to valuable to use for detergent. I would rather use it on my hair and skin, than for laundry:)

You will receive a zip lock bag with about 3 cups of powdered detergent. Use 2-3 T. for an average load of laundry, and a smaller amount for hand washables.

4744 11 Soda Can Stove DIY eBook + 7 Recipes~For Preppers, Campers, Hikers,Hunters
$3.89 / eBook Production not specified non-refrigerated
Never skip a hot meal during a power outage, boil safe water for drinking, make tea or coffee.

Hikers have been using these dependable mini stoves made from recycled soda cans for years because they weigh less than an ounce and cook a meal for 2 in 10 minutes or so. They last a long time due to no moving parts.

I spent 3-4 days (snowed in) researching everything I could find on making these mini stoves and put it all together to be the most efficient.

This listing is for the illustrated DIY eBook I wrote with easy instructions to make your own Soda Can Stove with liner, Simmer Lid, and Chicken wire pot stand, plus 7 delicious recipes (including Pizza).

I cooked Pizza and Apple Cobbler on the stove in the listing below, in a clearing in the snow. I was surprised how hot it got! The Apples were boiling in 7-10 minutes. It was delicious by the way. It took a little tweeking to get it right. I will tell you exactly how to make them, how to use them, 7 easy recipes, which fuel to use for the best results, plus safety tips. It looks like a toy but it's a real stove, adults only please.

Soda Can Stoves are great for:
Emergencies
Power outages
Picnics
Camping
Hunters
Bikers
Hikers
Preppers
Cook outs

Make several, they are so quick and easy, and give to family and friends.

3 mini stoves set together will cook a meal for several people. You can easily make a larger pot stand for 3 stoves because you know your neighbors are going to smell your cooking during a power outage and come over to eat. You may want to have a few extras made up to give to them.

This illustrated eBook which includes 7 easy recipes will be sent by email. I will need your email address to send it as an attachment.

Customer service after the sale is included. Feel free to ask me any questions you may have while you are making your mini stove.

3446 11 Morning Glory Seeds~Hot Pink & Deep Purple 2 Packets*Grow Indoors Too*SALE!
$5.20 per packets 2 All Natural non-refrigerated
Add color to your room (be sure to save some for planting outside) with these colorful Morning Glory vines. The vibrant Pink and dark Purple blooms are sure to grab attention. Yes, they will grow indoors in a sunny window. We put a few seeds in a pot on the kitchen counter, and they gave us colorful blooms for about 2 months. The flowers are smaller indoors, but still real colorful:) They were using a large Aloe plant for a trellis. You can use a few branches instead.

Easy to grow, and will grow in any soil type. Spectacular in the back of a flower garden, especially when planted in large groupings.

Hummingbirds and Bees love them! They fly from flower to flower. No chemicals are ever used here and they appreciate it I'm sure.

These beautiful Morning Glories bloom in the morning from Summer to frost. They are an Annual, but will self re-seed. The seed packet says for earliest blooms, to start seeds indoors 4 weeks before the last frost date. But I have always planted them directly in the garden in the spring with great success. They will need at least a half day of sun.

A few years ago some Birds made a nest in the top of the vine. They went in one side and out the other. It was fun the watch them from our kitchen window.

2 handmade packets of 60 seeds per packet. Planting instructions are included. They will be mailed to you instead of co-op delivery.
