Mastic essential oil as active ingredient
Mastic oil is derived from the resin of the mastic tree known scientifically as Pistacia lentiscus. It is traditionally produced on the Greek island of Chios and is also known as ‘tears of Chios’ because like many natural resins it resembles droplets or tears. Mastic has a very long and illustrious history of use. Records indicate the Greeks have harvested it for over 2500 years. It was first mentioned by Hippocrates who used the resin to prevent various health complaints including digestive issues and colds and also to freshen the breath.
