Yes, there are many pages that make these claims for lye soap,
especially with regard to poison ivy and chiggers. Here are a few, and
the search technique
that will lead you to many more:, "basic lye soap:"

Handmade Natural Soaps, Amonsoquath Tribe of Cherokee:

Squire Boone Caverns, Village Activities:

Search methodology followed:

Google search for "lye soap" "chiggers". I recommend trying the search
in exactly that way, with those two phrases in quotation marks, separated
by a space.
