Words by Anny Schneider

This pistachio lentisk hydrolate (also called "Mastic tree") from Morocco, is obtained by distillation of the leaves of this Mediterranean shrub.

Vascular and venous decongestant, in local application it treats hemorrhoids and varicose veins.

It also relieves edema of the legs as well as swelling and inflammation of the prostate.

Inhaled or diffused, and combined with other bronchodilators, it cleans the air and acts as an expectorant and decongestant of the sinuses.

The beauties of the harems of the Levant of old used it as a deodorant and chewed the gum to keep their breath.

The goat and sheep breeders on the shores of the Mediterranean know that their animals are crazy about Pistachio Lentiscus and that the plant deliciously scents milk and cheeses.


This pistachio lentisk hydrosol from Greece is distilled from the leaves of the plant.


Keep away from children, air, heat and light.
