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!

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!!"
