Description

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.

    Great product. I bought this mastic to burn as incense, and the smell is intoxicating. Though I found this shop while searching specifically for mastic resin, I spent a lot of time looking through a very interesting inventory of products. I’m sure I’ll be back to try something unfamiliar. Thanks!

    Mastic Chios has quickly become my absolute favorite incense, I use it daily. I have purchased from this shop twice now, and don't foresee that I will be going anywhere else for all of my incense needs. The quality of the product is unparalleled, delivery is always timely. Very professional and dependable.

    As always, my expectations of a superior resin are met with this Mastic. All of the resins and materia I order from this store are high quality, fresh and enable me to give that back to my customers with that sense of something extra. Thank you Dan for doing what you do.

    This product is really different. After having Mastic Turkish delight from an international grocer and loving it, we looked into what mastic was. I decided to order some of the natural product and found it actually did help my digestion. Warning, if you take it out to chew later, put it on a piece of parchment, not on a counter, plate or something else. It will stick like mad. Thanks for having this product available globally! I love Etsy!

    Beautiful natural resin with great packaging. Super fast delivery time despite the craziness with shipping right now.
    A super soft and delicate earthy scent, great for burning alone or incense making. One of my fave resins!
