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: 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 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!

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:


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.


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.

Testimonial from a devoted customer:
"I like how the Pink Zote cleans - it seems to get the various "smells" out better." Beth K. NE
