Talk about specializing: Not only does this mod apothecary solely carry goods from the Greek isle of Chios, it deals primarily in those spiked with the rare tree resin mastiha. Sisters Artemis and Kalliopi Kohas, whose ancestral roots stem from the island, work with a co-op in Greece to create a range of products that seize upon the herbal sap’s therapeutic qualities, like toothpaste and rose petal gum to combat halitosis and gingivitis; eggplant and leek chutney for aiding digestion; and shampoo and shower gel that strengthen hair and regenerate skin.
