The first references around the mastic tree and the mastic tree of

Chios are found in antiquity and essentially come from Herodotus (484-420 BC), who characteristically mentions that in ancient Greece they chewed the dried resinous liquid that flows from the bark of the mastic tree. In medical texts of late antiquity there is a plethora of medical prescriptions, with mastic as the main ingredient, which they considered beneficial to human health and attributed many properties to it. It was usually used in combination with other natural materials to treat a number of diseases.

Indeed, due to the

strong anti-inflammatory action of eleanolic and oleanolic acid (3-oxotriterpene), mastic acts healingly by solving inflammations of specific organs starting from periodontitis, esophagitis, gastritis, duodenal ulcer to colitis and hemorrhoids. It also prevents stagnation in these areas, preventing the appearance of symptoms such as indigestion or bloating. In addition, digestion is facilitated by the reflex secretion of saliva and gastric juice when chewing mastic. It is a fact that mastic is still used today to soften tumors in the anus, chest, liver, parotid glands, spleen, stomach, intestine and esophagus, even for diarrhea of children. In addition, it is considered analgesic, antitussive, appetite, aphrodisiac, astringent, erythropoietic, diuretic, expectorant and hemostatic. Mastic is remembered as the traditional antidote against abscesses, acne, cancer, ulcers and carcinomas, malignant pustules, cardiodynia, wart, atony, gingivitis, halitosis, leucorrhoea, mastitis, tubercles and atherosclerosis.

Recent studies by doctors at the University of Nottingham report that even in minimal doses (1 mg day for 2 weeks), mastic can treat peptic ulcer for which the bacterium Helicobacter Pylori is responsible, due to its antimicrobial action, while its effect on liver function is also important, as it activates its detoxifying activity. In this way, Cholesterol is absorbed, whose concentration in the blood decreases, thus reducing the risk of cardiovascular diseases. Diuretic properties are also mentioned, while the inhibition of leukotrienes synthesis by the action of mastic is also important.

Other modern scientific research that led to the isolation and identification of ursolic and oleanolic acid, revealed and confirmed that many of the pharmaceutical actions of mastic, such as anticancer, hepatoprotective, anti-inflammatory, antiulcerative, antimicrobial (against a number of pathogenic microorganisms such as staphylococci and salmonella), anti-hyperlipidemic and antiviral action, can be attributed mainly to ursolic acid, but also to its isomer, oleanolic acid. In fact, it has been proven that the addition of natural Chios mastic to toothpastes, washing solutions and mouth deodorants leads to the strengthening of the immune system of the tissues between the teeth and gums, thus acting against the formation of plaque and other periodontal diseases.

What is Tincture:

The tincture is created by soaking herbs in an alcoholic solution (grappa), usually for a period of a few weeks. During this time, the active ingredients of the herbs are dissolved in the alcoholic solution. This process results in the tincture retaining to the fullest all the beneficial properties of the herbs.

Herbal drops are highly concentrated herbal extracts in a natural alcoholic solution. They retain all their active ingredients and are completely natural.


15-20 drops in water twice a day for a month. Pause for ten days and repeat. Shake before use.
