6 Panepistimiou, Athens, 10671, Greece

One of the most recent naturopathic products to sweep the globe is mastiha, or mastic; the chewy resin, which comes from trees grown and harvested only on the Greek island of Chio, reportedly has antibacterial, antioxidant, and anti-inflammatory properties. It is nothing new: mastic was the earliest form of Greek chewing gum and was once wildly popular with the ladies of the harem in Constantinople. At the Athens branch of Mastihashop, the empire responsible for mastic’s new hip image, you can find the resin in Korres cosmetics, sweets, gum, and liqueur—all in retro chic packaging featuring classic photos of mid-century Greece.
