One or two grains of this precious incense resin have the power to transform a room. The scent of smouldering mastic (pronounced 'MAStick') is akin to the scent of heaven, sublime love, and out-of-body bliss. It's a precious rarity, and the reason's a good one.
Like all gums/resins, mastic is burned loose on charcoals, a pinch at a time (see how-to video). Also like most gums / resins, it is not attributed with a particular magical property. It can be burned on its own and smells wonderful. If it is used in a magical incense recipe, it provides a base for the herbs, oils and woods which are added to it.
10 grams of mastic are provided in each 30 ml jar.
