About Us

Our Story

Starflower Naturals was founded by Deana Sanderson in 2016 with a focus on creating natural skincare products. Her love for essential oils and their healing properties took her on a transformational journey that would change her life. Deana shares this experience with others by reaching beyond to help them with their own physical and emotional challenges. Deana is a Certified Aromatherapy Health Professional (CAHP), holds a Master in Business Administration (MBA) and practices energy healing as a Healing Touch Practitioner Apprentice (HTP-A). Her areas of specialization are currently centered around pain management; tension, stress and anxiety relief; infection and immune system support; respiratory support and prevention of respiratory infection; skin health and support; post-surgical recovery and mobility; and end-of-life care. Deana’s approach to health and wellness is for the whole person. She supports individuals and helps to restore client health and well-being through the use of aromatic plant material (aromatherapy) and natural energy therapy techniques (Healing Touch).


What are Holistic Aromatherapy and Healing Touch?

Holistic Aromatherapy

Aromatic plant material (essential oil) is utilized to promote health and well-being. Essential oils are natural compounds derived from botanical material. These essences can be used synergistically to target specific clinical symptoms (e.g., nausea, headaches, insomnia) or to restore emotional and spiritual balance.

Healing Touch

An energy healing therapy that enhances, supports and facilitates physical, emotional, mental and spiritual health. Energy healing works with our Individual Energy Field (IEF) which penetrates and surrounds the body, as well as the energy centers within and beyond our physical body. Healing Touch therapy helps restore balance and harmony with the human energy field or life force. This beautiful modality is non-invasive, effective, non-toxic and economical. A gentle, holistic way of healing that research has shown facilitates the relaxation response and enhances the healing process without the use of pharmaceuticals.

What can these healing modalities do for me?

Both healing modalities are complimentary therapies that support your natural ability to heal, balance physical, mental and emotional well-being as well as ease acute and chronic conditions.

Some of the benefits include:

  • Reduction of pain, anxiety, stress, and depression
  • Provides support during chemotherapy and radiation
  • Strengthens and supports the immune system
  • Reduces effects of trauma and chronic pain

Quality handcrafted natural plant-based skincare

Starflower Naturals  skincare line of product are 100% natural and formulated using plant-based ingredients. All products are anhydrous (made without water) and do not contain any potentially harmful constituents. Removing water from the equation eliminates the need for preservatives, emulsifiers and/or stabilizers resulting in a pure, concentrated product. Only natural ingredients that are rich in nutrients such as plant butters, infused oils and plant essences are used when designing and formulating. This not only benefits your skin but contributes to a healthier tomorrow for our planet.

The word “natural” is not a defined standard in the cosmetic industry. It means different things to different people based on individual values, principles and beliefs. At Starflower Naturals, we use ingredients sourced from Mother Earth and not synthesized in a lab. We also believe in the Power of Simplicity. Using the experience and wisdom of time-honored beauty we return to a place in time where simple was divine. Understanding and knowing the ingredients you put on your skin brings peace of mind.

Our skin is our bodies largest organ and absorbs what we put on it. With this in mind, why would you use toxic and/or synthetic ingredients?

All of our products are created in small batches using ingredients that offer nutrients to benefit the skin. Sourcing and formulating in small quantities ensures freshness and quality. Nourish, protect and repair your skin using the science of carrier and essential oils. Starflower Naturals overall focus is on full-body health and wellness while creating a sustainable future.
