The rarity of mastiha and the difficulty of its production make it expensive. As a result, imitations (fake Mastiha) in the form of other resins appear in the market, sold as "mastic," such as Boswellia or gum arabic. Other trees, such as Pistacia palaestina, can also produce a resin similar to mastic. Yet other substances, such as pine tree resin and almond tree resin, are sometimes used in place of mastic.

History: Mastic has been used as a medicine since antiquity and is still used in traditional folk medicine of the Middle East. The first-century Greek physician Pedanius Dioscorides mentions the healing properties of mastiha in his book De Materia Medica. Hippocrates wrote that the mastiha is good for prevention of digestive problems and colds, and Galenus suggested that mastiha was useful for bronchitis and for improving the condition of the blood. In medieval times, mastic was highly valued by sultans' harems as a breath freshener and a tooth whitener.
