Gum Mastic resin (Pistacia lentiscus var. Chia) is imported directly from Chios, Greece - "first choice" grade, small tears. Gum Mastic is a transparent, lemon-white colored, tear-shaped natural resin from the mastic tree, which grows only on the southern part of the island of Chios.

The Egyptians imported this popular incense as it was a key ingredient in their ancient "Kyphi" recipes. People in North Africa use mastic for incense burning as a tonic for exhaustion. Mastic works well for meditation and reflection, as it's bright radiant energy is helpful when you need clarity. It's also used as a natural and hygienic chewing gum: excellent for teeth cleaning and as a medicine for stomach aches, ulcers, diabetes, cholesterol, etc.

Mastic oil and other products are produced from mastic and are used widely in medicine, the pharmaceutical industry, dentistry, and industry in general. A study at University of Athens / Department of Pharmacy proved that Mastic and Mastic oil have remarkable antibacterial and fungicidal properties. In the USA and Japan, they produce medicine from mastic to treat stomach ulcers and help relieve stomach aches. Traditionally mastic is taken as a medicine to drop the sugar levels of the blood (diabetes) and to improve cholesterol.

    I am
    A beginner at burning resins and the mastica gun resin is a nice introduction for me. I am tryin to teach myself what to sense when burning resins and how to separate the smoke from the true essence of its aroma. This resin yields a nice lemon/ citrus grassy scent. I’m not sure if this specific resin is for scenting one’s home but I enjoyed it.
