Mastic (Pistacia lentiscus) is an evergreen shrub found throughout the Mediterranean. It is native throughout the Mediterranean region, from Morocco and Iberia in the west through southern France and Turkey to Syria and Israel and Palestine in the east. It is also native to the Canary Islands. The name derives either from the Greek verb mastichein (to gnash the teeth, origin of the English word masticate) or massein (to chew)
Mastic might help reduce stomach acid and protect the lining of the stomach and intestine. It might also have antibacterial effects and reduce swelling.
The essential oil is an Analgesic, may be Anti-bacterial, may be Anti-fungal, may be Anti-inflammatory, May be Anti-spasmodic, maybe Anti-viral, Decongestant, Lymph decongest, Lymphatic support, Tonic. It has been traditionally used for varicosities and as a decongestant.
People use mastic for stomach ulcers, indigestion, Crohn disease, wound healing, and many other conditions, but there is no good scientific evidence to support most of these uses.
Don't confuse mastic with gum arabic. These are not the same.
