Our certified organic mastic essential oil is steam distilled from the leaves of the small mastic tree growing in the rocky, dry soil in the mountains of Corsica. One of our favorite ways of using this essential oil is to help relieve pain and inflammation, especially relating to muscle tension and headaches.
The leathery, green leaves of the small Pistacia lentiscus evergreen tree create a robust, herbaceous, earthy, balsamic, resinous, warm, and radiant essential oil. Along with helping to ease pain and inflammation, mastic essential oil helps to quiet unwanted muscle spasms. This essential oil is often used to help improve lymph circulation, reduce swelling, and ease vein congestion caused by varicose veins.
