Healing properties in Chickey's Soaps:
All Chickey's soaps are handcrafted by the cold process method. This means that all natural oils and herbs and clays are combined to cure for at least 4 weeks to produce a moisturizing, healing soap that does not dry out the skin like most commercial brands. This is because the natural glycerins created by the saponify process remain in the soap, while most commercial brands remove this glycerin and sell it as a bi-product. Notice the difference when you use these hand crafted soaps. These soaps are made in small batches with love and attention to the art of soap making.
Activated Charcoal: Ally for those dealing with acne, charcoal acts as a magnet to grease and oily residues. This is great for all skin types but especially for those with oily skin.
Comfrey: Comfrey is known as 'knit bone'. It is a deep healer filled with minerals and vitamins. Comfrey is one of the official herbal remedies of the ages. Comfrey is deeply nourishing to the skin and body and will leave your skin feeling tones, smooth and nourished. Excellent for all.
Various Clays: Leaves skin smooth and moisturized while balancing the pH levels of the skin. Also used as a natural coloring agent so as not to use any harmful color additives that can irritate the skin.
Nettles: Stinging Nettle is an ally to the skin due to the abundant minerals and vitamins found in the plant. Known as 'green milk' due to the high levels of calcium found in the plant. This soap is excellent for all skin types.
Rose: An excellent calming herb. Especially lovely for those with sensitive skin.

Healing Salve: This salve is infused with white pine, which is a deep healer for the skin with its rich source of vitamins and minerals and anti-microbial qualities. Known for centuries as an ally for all skin conditions, from dry skin to psoriasis. Bee Propolis is added for extra healing properties, including a rich source of vitamins, minerals and enzymes while also being anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial and anti0fungal. Cocoa butter and beeswax nourishes the skin and adds a protective layer allowing for the healing benefits of the oils and herbs to absorb into the skin.
Healing Bar: Same properties as the Healing Salve, but a little less greasy, easier, (and more fun) to apply!
Bee Magic: Made with honey, beeswax, bee pollen and bee propolis, this salve is loaded with healing properties for the skin (and lips). All bee products are known for their anti-microbial, anti-inflammatory, nutrient rich elements.
Sore Muscle Salve: This salve is infused with fresh St. John's Wort which is known to release lactic acid build up in the muscles which is one reason for sore, achy muscles. St. John's Wort is also known to be a natural sunscreen and is an ally to burns.
Pine Tar Salve: Now don't go thinking this is going to smell good, because it is not. That is not its intention! This salve is a drawing salve that will aid in the removal of splinters and other foreign objects. Made from infused olive oil, pitch pine resin and beeswax, it is naturally antimicrobial and antibacterial and will aid in healing cuts and scrapes. Put a dab on your splinter, cut or bite and cover with a bandage. It is rather sticky, AND Black, so it is best to use a small amount and cover. A little goes a LONG way!
Lip Balm: A long lasting, nourishing balm for your lips! While most lip balms contain petroleum, making your lips crave more, Chickey's lip balm contain all natural ingredients, including: coconut oil, beeswax and propolis, ingredients that can be eaten. Which is a good thing, considering it is meant for your lips!
