About Mastiha Shop New York

Mastiha Shop New York specializes in all manner of products made with mastiha, an all-natural antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and antibacterial resin. One of the joys of travel is wandering into random shops and picking up interesting looking items. If you were exploring the Greek island of Chios, for example, you might sample fruit preserves or other goodies that contain mastiha, a local specialty made from the resin of the mastic tree. Prized since antinquity as for its medicinal properties, as a digestive aid, skincare treatment, and even toothpaste, mastiha was one of the most valuable commodities of the Middle Ages, traded throughout the Mediterranean, Northern Europe and the Middle East.
