Road Test

Coming up on 20 years ago, Chey Birch, the founder of Black Chicken Remedies, was living in Bondi 2000 and having problems with irritated skin and sinus issues. Nothing she used was helping, and after seeing a naturopath, she took a long look at the toxins she was unknowingly consuming, and began blending her own essential oils and therapeutic botanical extracts to create a natural remedy for her condition. Birch used the highest quality natural and organic ingredients with that first product, a therapeutic oil which is now called Love Your Body Oil, the formula of which has remained unchanged. She blended it in a little bowl with a black chicken painted on it, and Black Chicken Remedies was born. Today, Black Chicken Remedies is a global brand selling remedial products to people all over the world, designed to make a difference to people on a physical, mental and emotional level. Loving the story behind the brand, I was sent a selection of Black Chicken Remedies products to road test, and which would be ideal for travellers.  

First up was Balm of Ages Organic Body Balm, which brings a range of remedies into one product. Just a few of the many jobs it can do include soothing itchy and irritated skin, nourishing chapped lips, removing makeup, soothing sunburn, and deeply nourishing, restoring and protecting the skin. This lovely balm contains ingredients including shea butter, hemp seed oil and geranium essential oil as well as beeswax, and should be in every traveller’s cosmetic bag or first aid kit. Black Chicken Remedies also has a range of pocket sized inhalers for people on the go, and new to the lineup is De-Stress Nasalette Essential Oil Inhaler. It contains essential oils including lemongrass, peppermint, and sweet orange which work together to de-stress and relax the mind. To use, place the personal inhaler tip just below your nostril, close off the other nostril with one finger, slowly inhale to a count of five, slowly exhale, and then repeat with the other nostril. You can do this several times, every two to three hours. Another bestseller is Axilla Natural Deodorant Paste, formulated with a unique blend of natural and organic ingredients to target and neutralise odour without harmful chemicals or sweat blockers. For anyone who’s concerned about the chemicals in traditional deodorants, this paste is free from aluminium salts, alcohol, parabens, and other harmful chemicals. It’s also completely invisible when you apply it, with a version for sensitive skins called Axilla Deodorant Barrier Booster. To use, simply take a pea sized amount of paste with your finger and gently rub it into your armpits until it warms and dissolves.

Black Chicken Remedies also makes lovely skincare products, including a range of luxury serums for the face. Love Your Face Serum - Natural Face Serum, and Nocturnalist Night Serum - Natural Night Serum, both come in handy mini sizes for travellers. The day serum is light and fragrant, and formulated with 11 therapeutic oils designed to hydrate, smooth, and give your skin a serious moisture boost. The oils include vitamin E, organic jojoba, neroli and sandalwood. The night serum smells divine and is designed to work on your skin overnight, delivering a fresh, radiant complexion in the morning, as well as hydrating and repairing the skin, tackling dryness and inflammation, and smoothing fine lines. Just a few of the powerful ingredients in the formula include prickly pear, neroli, acai, argan oil and frankincense.  To use either serum, just apply a few drops to cleansed skin and massage in. The final product is ICU Intensive Care Eye Serum, a potent yet lightweight serum which is instantly soothing and refreshing, while also smoothing fine lines and hydrating the under eye area. It has a formula containing organic cucumber seed oil, milk thistle oil and green coffee seed; to use, just apply a drop or two to fingertips and lightly dab under your eyes morning and night.

Beauty In Travel Loves

  • The remedies are designed to make a difference on a physical, mental and emotional level.
  • The products are toxin and chemical free.
  • There are remedies ideal for travellers which come in small travel-friendly sizes. 

Insider Tips

  • Black Chicken products have a shelf life of 24 months. After opening, however, all products should be used within 6–12 months for maximum effect. 
  • Some products, such as Axilla Deodorant Paste and Balm of Ages, are temperature-sensitive and may soften or even liquefy in hot temperatures, or become hard in very cold environments. This does not affect the power and efficacy of the product; all you need to do is put them in the fridge or a warm place for a few minutes to reverse the change.
