The Greek island of Chios, apart from its beautiful crystal blue waters and sandy beaches, is also famous for being home to Mastiha trees that produce Crystal Tears, the aromatic, resinous crystal granules that come from slicing the tree’s bark. The Crystal Tears which are rare and difficult to cultivate, are collected on specific times of the year by letting the sap flow like slow-motion tears to the ground.
Mastiha (crystal tears) has been historically renowned for its healing qualities with findings showing that it has antimicrobial, anti-fungal and anti-inflammatory action. Mastiha has been harvested for at least 2,500 years since Greek Antiquity. The first mention of mastiha ‘tears’ was by Hippocrates. Hippocrates used mastiha for the prevention of digestive problems, colds and as a breath freshener.
