Mastic is a natural resin that comes from an evergreen small tree (large shrub) which is cultivated successfully on the island of Chios, in the Eastern Aegean Sea.

Ancient Greeks used to chew the resin from the Mastika tree as part of their oral hygiene. But the substance has also seen myriad other uses, being made into creams to heal wounds and reduce inflammation, and dried into a powder to treat irritable bowel syndrome and ulcers.

The resin has even been used in traditional medicine for the management of asthma. Today, mastic has piqued the interest of pharmaceutical and nutritional supplement companies worldwide.
