Mastiha water is a natural aqueous extract of the Mastiha oil and softly retains the unique flavor of mastiha and some of the beneficial attributes as well. It is 100% natural and contains all the water-soluble ingredients of mastiha and therefore some of the beneficial qualities. In addition scientific studies has shown that some of the active ingredients of mastiha essential oil can also be found in mastiha water. However, it will be very interesting to further study whether or not mastiha water itself exhibits mastiha oil actions (anti-microbial, anti-bacterial). It is produced from a steam distillation of Chios.
