Mastic

Natures Miracle

Chios Mastic is the natural resin that comes out of the trunk and the branches of the mastic trees that are called “skinos”, with scientifically proven, unique beneficial and healing idioms. This excretion is caused by the scoring of the skinos by a sharp tool. Mastiha appears as a tear in the engraved spots and flows in drops into the soil. Its crystalline form makes it look like a rough diamond of nature that has a special aroma that gives it uniqueness.
