Mastic tears. Finally available in the shop!

One of the best known natural chewing gums, this sweet-smelling, classic resin has a track record as ancient as Frankincense and Myrrh. Used extensively in the Mediterranean for medicine since the time of Hippocrates in ancient Greece, Mastic is a mainstay of Mediterranean cooking, baking and the production of liqueurs,

Grown mainly on the Greek island of Chios, Mastic resin production has been coveted by empires and conquerors. Controlling the supply of Chios Mastic has been a strategic consideration by invading armies for hundreds if not thousands of years.

Mastic is the original Old World chewing gum with the origin of it’s name rooted in mastication ie: chewing.

With traditional medicinal attributes ranging from digestive ease, fresh breath, stimulating the gums and appetite, removing plaque and refreshing the mind, Mastic has been used as medicine for thousands of years.

The unique aroma of Mastic makes it valuable in both incense blends and perfume compositions.

Studies have shown that compounds in Mastic resin kill the H. Pylori bacteria which is a known cause of ulcers.

When creating sacred space or cleansing an area, I have found there is nothing with as high a vibration and cleansing ability as a couple of Mastic tears on the coal.

Mastic is an integral ingredient in “Chrism” the sacred anointing oil of the Orthodox church.

Mastic has a unique and unusually sweet aroma which has made it a popular ingredient in confections, cakes, puddings and other traditional culinary delights of cultures all around the Mediterranean.

Please note our ounces are 30 grams, not the 25 grams offered by many other sellers. To this generous ounce, we ALWAYS add a bit more and NEVER less to our packages. Something our customers have come to count on.

For recipes, instructions and more information about the different types of Frankincense, Myrrh and other oleoresins, please visit my blog at http://apothecarysgarden.com.

    I purchased quite a few items and haven’t had the opportunity to try them all out but so far the mastic and green hojari frankincense are amazing. I’m glad I stumbled upon this shop. Will definitely be buying from again soon. Thank you!

    Hum?
    How would you describe a walk through Central Park in New York City on a beautiful spring day?
    Difficult if you have never been there.
    Get the resin from Dan and take a journey from the comfort of your home.
