Chios Mastic Tree

The tears of the mastic tree (Pistacia lentiscus var. Chios), which for hundred of years have made Chios renowned throughout the world, continue to give life to the island, in the form of new products, uses and applications.

Chios mastiha (or mastic) is the natural resin that oozes from the trunk and branches of the tree, when they are slit with a sharp knife, and emerges like tear drops from the “wound”. This thick, sticky fluid hardens after about 15 to 20 days into irregular crystals of varying shapes and sizes.

Chios mastiha was recognised in ancient times both for its special scent and for its therapeutic properties. It was the worlds first chewing gum, and from antiquity on people chewed it to clean their teeth and freshen their breath. It was also an active ingredient in many pharmaceutical remedies and was known as cure fro ulcers.
