Discovering Mastiha from Chios: The Greek Secret to Youthful Skin and Wellness

What is Mastiha?

Have you ever heard of mastiha? No, it's not a fancy new yoga pose or a trendy diet craze. Mastiha (pronounced ma-stee-ha), also known as Mastic, is actually a natural resin that comes from the bark of the mastic tree, which is found exclusively on the Greek island of Chios.

A Rich History of Mastiha

The use of mastiha dates back thousands of years, with ancient Greeks valuing its medicinal properties. Today, mastiha is still highly regarded in Greece and beyond for its various health benefits. 

The Health Benefits of Mastiha

One of the most popular uses of mastiha is for oral health. Chewing mastiha gum can freshen breath and help prevent cavities, thanks to its antibacterial properties. Mastiha has also been shown to have anti-inflammatory effects, making it useful for relieving stomach pains and ulcers.

But that's not all! Mastiha is also great for your skin. Its natural antioxidant properties help to protect the skin from environmental stressors and promote a youthful, radiant complexion.
