Organic Mastic Gum - 70g


Mastic gum is a natural ancient resin that is formed from the hardened sap of Mastic trees found in some parts of Yemen and the Greek island of Chios. It is considered as a superfood as it is rich with nutrients and used as a flavouring in many Middle Eastern food dishes, for incense burning and also for its healthy gum properties in powder form. Please note that this type of gum is best used in cooking or ground into powder form and mixed with water. It is not effective as a soft chewing gum. Omani Green Hojari frankincense is recommended for chewing gum use. 

When taken internally, mastic gum can help to reduce bloating, cholesterol, infections, digestive problems from acid reflux, heartburn and bad breath. As an incense it is burned over a hot coal and releases an exotic fragrance that helps to drive out insects from the home. It also has a calming spiritual effect when burned and helps to relieve anxiety and stress.
