Manhattan's Mastiha Shop: A Unique, Greek, Resin Adventure

Posted by admin on Oct 11, 2012 4:43:00 PM

Ever touch the trunk of a pine tree and spend the next few hours with “Pine fingers”? Well, once, long ago, someone wandering the Greek island of Chios didn’t just settle for sticky fingers. He rolled up a ball of resin from a lentisk tree, popped it in his mouth and began to chew! The sap was named Masticha, (the origin of the word masticate), and soon enough, its plethora of therapeutic properties began to shine!

Enter Artemis and Kalliopi Kohas, American-born sisters who’s parents both came from the Island of Chios, and for whom Mastiha was not just an obscure ingredient, but a part of life. Inside their Lower East Side shop, MastihaShop, you’ll find anything under the sun that incorporates Mastiha as an ingredient: Baked goods, natural bath, body and beauty supplies, gum and candies, jams, condiments, spreads and toothpastes. For something unique and bursting with natural goodness, visit MastihaShop (and enjoy 10% off your first purchase with their LoyalBlocks welcome token!)
