Instruction 1

Instructions on how to chew mastic tears may seem complicated, but in fact it is not. Before you start chewing for the first time, we recommend to drink a glass of clean water. You will not have dry mouth and mastic will be better chewed and combined. Choose a rather hard piece from the package and chew between the front teeth and with the help of the tongue until you form a solid mass. Then you can chew like a classic chewing gum in your whole mouth. Combine different hardnesses of the mastic tears.

Instruction 2

Another way to get used to chewing mastic is much easier. Put a tear of mastic in your mouth and suck it like candy. Mastic absorbs saliva from its mouth until it softens completely and you can then start chewing. You can chew mastic gum for at least 15 - 20 minutes, then you can spit it out. However, as usual, you can chew it much longer.
