The first word that may come to mind when you hear the word "Chia" is "Pet". Those funny little tchotchkes shaped like farm animals and cartoon characters are pretty hard to forget. I remember wanting one so badly as a child, that I saved up all of the spare quarters and dimes that I could, hustling pocket change from my parents, and selling stickers to my siblings.
When I finally had a few dollars gathered up, I made my the purchase that would begin my too-short career as an amateur gardener. Spreading the seeds and mossy goop over my tiny clay sheep, I had no idea that those little Chia Seeds were good for anything beyond plant-based entertainment.
It turns out that Chia Seeds are pretty marvelous. Originating in Mexico and Guatemala, Chia is actually a member of the mint family. It is believed to have been cultivated by the Aztec as a nutritional grain and food source. Today, Chia is valued in both health food and natural beauty.
Chia Seed produces oil with an exceptional source of omega-three fatty acids. In fact, Chia Seed Oil can contain up to 65% omega-3. That's twice as much as is usually found in Black Raspberry Seed Oil. It also contains a whopping 21% omega-6 and a variety of other beneficial components.
