In this crazy world, we live in, you have to understand you're not alone sis. Mental stability, self care and self love are all necessary for strength and peace of mind. That's why we are deeming Courtney Pack as the Queen of Beauty.Happiness.Healing
What inspired you to start your business and why?: In 2014, after my mother passed away, I started to have moments where I felt like I needed to take on her tasks because she did SO MUCH in our family, while barely having enough time to care for herself. To be honest, I cannot remember the last time my mother did anything related to self-care because she was always doing for others…and so I tried to pick up the same tasks plus more…in order to keep my mind off of the hurt and pain, only to dream about my grief throughout the night. So I wasn’t really facing my pain because I was trying to throw sugar on it every day. My depression and habit to allow me to be overworked led to a great deal of stress and no time for my thoughts, feelings, self-love, or healing. But what I also realized is that what my mother did is exactly what every woman does naturally as a nurturer, take on a huge amount of responsibilities so that others can be well.
Now, to this day, people always ask me how I would allow myself and my body to take on so much stress? Great question, I just felt like it was naturally in me, as a woman, to overfill my plate with entrees that did not nourish nor do me any good mentally. Because at the end of the day, my plate for my inner self was always empty; I gave and gave until I couldn’t give anymore, and still tried to give. But the more I thought I was Wonder Woman, the greater the stress, and this time my body reacted. Everybody that knows me, knows that my help for people does not stop, ever. Up to the point where I experienced the burden of major depression, I was eating well on a plant-based diet, getting back into running, and making sure I was getting plenty of rest. But soon enough, my stress prevailed and I had to come to terms with my own body. At this moment, not only was I beginning to find joy in silence and soul searching, but I also began experimenting with natural essential oils, herbs, and spices to repair and soothe my body. These essential oils are depression aids, anxiety fighters, and health boosters, and are included in each product that I make for Beauty.Happiness.Healing.
