Note: The difficulty of harvesting and distilling mastic essential oil reflects in the rarity of this oil and its high price. Only a very small amount of this oil is produced annually worldwide. Much of the oil sold on the market is adulterated with other oils or synthetics to make it more “affordable”. Ours is guaranteed to be 100% pure, artisan distilled mastic essential oil.

Observations and Anecdotal Information
The Berbers of Morocco, the ancient Greeks, and other cultures of the Mediterranean, have used mastic essential oil as a gum, food, and medicine for many centuries.
It has been most widely recognized as a digestive system tonic and treatment for ulcers and digestive issues. Recently mastic essential oil has been linked to regenerating vision and eyes; and hair regrowth.
Both of these conditions may be linked to the presence of excess H. pylori in the digestive system, causing deterioration including these symptoms. Mastic has been found in the laboratory to eliminate H. pylori bacteria, as mentioned above.
Mastic essential oil has been known to stop bleeding, and is a strong styptic–one of the best of all herbal styptics. It can be applied directly to wounds. It disinfects as well as encouraging the growth of healthy new skin.
Generally regarded as safe, the only known contraindication is for those who are allergic to pollen or to the mastic tree itself.
