Mastic Trees

Mastic Trees
The Mastic tree was discovered in Cesme 6,000 years ago and is used to flavour Raki , a traditional Turkish alcoholic drink, Mastic jelly, and has a very pleasant smell. Mastic is not only used in the domestic kitchen but also in the manufacture of medicine and paint.  

Mastic in History

The ancient physicians of Greece made a variety of medicines from Mastic to treat rabies, snake bites, stomach, liver and intestinal disorders and Galinos said “this is excellent for chronic bouts of coughing”. From the 10th century onwards the fame of the Mastic tree spread beyond the Greek Island of Sakız (Chios) and across the entire world.

Mastic Today

Today the Mastic tree is used by 25 national pharmaceutical companies for many different purposes, there are six different superior medicines on the market for ulcers, it is an important part of cancer and cirrhosis treatments, and also known to aid high blood pressure, diabetes and high cholesterol. The importance and benefits of this tree becomes better understood across the world day by day.
While you are in Cesme, we advice you to a dessert with Mastic such as pudding with Mastic or Mastic ice cream.
