Large Mastiha Tears 20g Box
Chios Mastiha is a unique product with many beneficial qualities and wide- ranging uses since antiquity. Nowadays, it is used in pharmaceuticals, perfumes, cosmetics, beverages, bakery goods, sweets as well as in cooking. Chios Mastiha is the natural resin of pistacia lentiscus var. Chia, a tree which grows only on the Aegean island of Chios, Greece. Scientific research shows that Chios Mastiha has anti- microbial, anti- inflammatory, and healing activity. Also, it has beneficial effects on both body hygiene and skin care.
The large size tears tend to be the stickiest, but have the most flavor. If you find that one is sticking to your teeth, just add a smaller piece to your gum, or have a sip of cold water.
We recommend that you freeze the large tears and then grind them in a spice grinder, or in a mortar & pestle with salt or sugar depending on what you are making.
