No doubt, you've heard of aromatherapy. Maybe you or a loved one has even tried it, only to find that all the hype and medicinal claims were at best, questionable. Thanks to progressive studies conducted at the MAAMAS (Maternal Alliance Against Mediocre Aromatherapy Scents) Center for Scientific Research, there's now hope. Several years ago, it's founder, Dr. Emesis Pukis theorized that "common scents" were more likely to evoke powerful emotions and possess healing properties than the fancy-schmancy products currently on the market.
She further postulated that the more closely that aromas authentically related to the cultural context of women, the more effective they would be in providing the relief, reprieve and rest they so richly deserve.
