Hi there! I am Massiva thanks so much for visiting my site! Raindrops Wellness.
I started Raindrops Wellness in October 2014 while I was pregnant with my third boy. I knew I wanted to create something, but I wasn’t entirely sure of what that “something” was. I have a list of health and wellness bloggers (friends) that I follow and I would say that they inspired me lots and encouraged me to create something to share my wisdom. I had no idea what I was doing, but I had the passion to learn and grow, so I did just that. I would spend hours online, researching html code and watching blogging tips youtube videos.
I am a mom for 3 rambunctious boys living a holistic city life in San Francisco, a Holistic Nutrition Consultant, a part time Blogger, a licensed Health Coach (LSH ), a Raindrop Technique Specialist (CRTS) and a Young Living Essential Oils Distributor #2136799. My services help people get into a healthy happy lifestyle and reach for emotional and physical balance. I love to take care of my family by cooking nutritious meals and shopping at the farmers market.
I come from a little town called Tigzirt in Algeria, North Africa. Growing up in my hometown I only ate seasonal, organic fruits and vegetables freshly grown in my parents farm. I ate everything from scratch, I hand picked olives and assisted in the processing of turning them to pure cold pressed oil.
Living this lifestyle from my childhood and traveling to lots of places around the world has influenced what I am today. I moved from Algeria to south France were I finished my degree in Linguistic anthropology and translation. And joined a group of students for cultural exchange in Bonn, Germany. My Student’s years far from my family has affected my nutrition lifestyle in a really negative way. I started eating awful junk foods, I gained 20 pounds in a period of one year and began suffering from adrenal fatigue and lots of inflammation in my body. Dang Dang!! Time for a change I said to myself.
I moved from southern France to San Francisco 11 years ago and happily settled. I am in love with the Bay Area and it’s diversity :). My journey to a healthier lifestyle in my new environment (world) started when I had my eldest son. I started bringing back memories of the holistic, healthy and clean lifestyle my parents gave me and thought to myself there is no way that my children won’t have that same gift. I really think of it as a gift because not so many people value nutrition as a healthy start. I started reading labels for the first time, shopping and eating mostly organic, limited eating out as frequently and introduced the Paleo Diet into my life . These changes has brought tremendous transformation in my health and my family’s in general. Best of all, is we are saving loads of money eating from scratch.
My food recipes are mostly Paleo-ish, Mediterranean style including lots of tajines with savory north African spices. The flavors you will find in my food recipes include cinnamon, saffron, ginger, paprika, and cumin, turmeric to name a few.
I recently discovered the amazing benefits of using essential oils to boost my general well-being and quickly became obsessed. I truly believe that they are a great gift from god to us. I share lots of DIY recipes on this blog and I encourage you to check them out. If you decide you want to get oils under my sponsorship I can guarantee you that you will be entered into an amazing community and and you will get all the support you need to get started.
