    Thanks for being my cooking friend. I guess only from Greek deli shops because it's 100% Greek as it can't be cultivated anywhere else in the world except Chios island, nowhere else even in Greece. Ask for the original resin which has not been processed in any way because they make many products with mastic, as it has a beautiful aroma.
