Our magical Mastic essence, distilled from the Mastic tree, is a symbol of freshness and purity in both Greek mythology and Hebrew scriptures. Also known as "Arabic gum" and the "tears of Chios," the resin of the mastic tree dries in the sun to create a natural, piney gum that was first chewed to freshen the breath over two thousand years ago.
This charismatic liquid resin is mythological for skin and body care as it super smooths and softens the appearance of scars, stretch marks and spots. For fostering feelings of purification, silkifying skin, and freshen oral ecology connect with mastic's esteemed energy.
