The high price of authentic Mastic Chios Essential Oil is due to the very small amount of essential oil available from the resin However, the rush one gets from every little sniff of this amazing fragrance will, I believe, make this a prized treasure in every aromatic collection and make the cost seem inconsequential.
The aroma of this Essential Oil really is something!! It has the sweet-spicy herbaceous scent of fresh-cut honey-rich wildflowers, with a deep amber note. It is uplifting and stimulating without being harsh or hard-edged. Dry Black pepper notes weave through it, balancing the candylike-sweetness and adding dimension. It is vibrant, potent, heady and unique.

Everything is simply perfect! I am someone...
Everything is simply perfect! I am someone who enjoys using a lot but I don't need to because just a little bit of resin is powerful!
When my package came I was leaving my house so I grabbed it and it went in my car with me. Even unopened my car smelled like heaven for a week! I needed Dan's assistance with my order and he went over and beyond for me! I send Dan many wishes for all the goods ☀️
