Hi I’m Chey Birch, Founder of Black Chicken Remedies. It was the year 2000 and I was living in Bondi Sydney. For years I suffered from irritated skin and sinus issues but nothing I used healed my symptoms. After seeing a naturopath for some much needed advice she suggested I take a good look at my life and the toxins I was unknowingly consuming. So, I did exactly that. It wasn’t until I looked at my soaps, cleansers and scrubs was I truly horrified. The ingredients in these products were synthetic and borderline toxic – and yet here I was lathering myself with these chemicals everyday. In hindsight it seems obvious my skin was trying to tell me something.
On my dining room table, in a little bowl with a black chicken painted on it, I began blending essential oils and therapeutic botanical extracts to create a natural remedy for my condition. I had no idea at the time that what I was creating would benefit thousands of people; I was just hoping to help myself.
I didn’t spare anything when creating this nourishing blend. I used the highest quality natural and organic ingredients I could find and kept my product as an oil – that way I didn’t need to add any preservatives or binding agents. After a while my symptoms disappeared and friends began asking if I could bring ‘the black chicken’ to their homes.
The blend I created all those years ago is my Love Your Body Oiland it’s been unchanged since.
