We're so glad you're here!
The word -Valent- means "brave", "courageous", and "determined" in Catalan. (The language spoken in the northeastern part of Spain and Andorra-Catalonia.
These three words describe just who we are here at Valent.
The idea for Valent started back in 2014 while Courtney, our founder/owner was working on a crisis and suicide prevention hotline. This work can often times be stressful and paired with chronic migraines, Courtney discovered that her self care routine was nowhere near where it needed to be. Little by little she started crafting a better self care routine which includes changes to both her physical and mental health.
One of these changes included the introduction of aromatherapy into her everyday life. Courtney used different scents and combinations to relief stress, insomnia, physical pain, uplift her mood, and more!
It is a well known fact that Courtney does not go ANYWHERE without aromatherapy. She has even provided aromatherapy relief to friends who were suffering from headaches while at a bar.
Courtney started sharing her self care routine and aromatherapy with friends and family and was met with an overwhelmingly positive response.
After much courage, or valent, she decided to create Valent and share this self care mission with the world! Although, she is no longer a hotline counselor on the suicide prevention lifeline, this cause is still very much a part of her life. Each Valent order comes with a Suicide Prevention Lifeline informational card to help those who may need support, or know someone who is struggling.
Our hope is to help everyone practice self care on a daily basis, no matter where you are!
