Mastic Gum Resin

NOTE: Due to the ongoing pandemic, the already very high price of genuine mastic has almost doubled (it is now almost $30 for an ounce). When the price comes down again, we will get more.

Gum Mastic resin (Pistacia lentiscus var. Chia, also called mastiha) is imported directly from Chios, Greece, its only source. These are "first choice" grade "tears of Chios." 

Gum Mastic is a transparent, lemon-white colored, tear-shaped natural resin from the mastic tree, which grows only on the southern part of the island of Chios. They have been highly prized for centuries, and are only produced by a handful of villages.

Mastic is the perfume of Gemini. When Geminis are sick, to be healed rapidly they must smell mastic every day.

The Egyptians imported this popular incense as it was a key ingredient in their ancient "Kyphi" recipes. People in North Africa use mastic for incense burning as a tonic for exhaustion. Mastic works well for meditation and reflection, as it's bright radiant energy is helpful when you need clarity. It's also used as a natural and hygienic chewing gum: excellent for teeth cleaning and as a medicine for stomach aches, ulcers, diabetes, cholesterol, etc.

Mastic oil and other products are produced from mastic and are used widely in medicine, the pharmaceutical industry, dentistry, and industry in general. A study at University of Athens / Department of Pharmacy proved that Mastic and Mastic oil have remarkable antibacterial and fungicidal properties. In the USA and Japan, they produce medicine from mastic to treat stomach ulcers and help relieve stomach aches. Traditionally mastic is taken as a medicine to drop the sugar levels of the blood (diabetes) and to improve cholesterol.

Directions for use: Place a few pieces of mastic resin on top of a lit charcoal and enjoy...

Includes half (.5) of an ounce of mastic tears, packaged in a reusable, food-grade pouch made from natural Japanese kraft paper with a resealable airtight zip lock closure.
