Back in September 2022, Lush did a collaboration with The Poetry Pharmacy. The 3 bath bombs created for this super-unique line have sold well and are currently still available to purchase at the time of writing this review.
The Poetry Pharmacy is an original Victorian shop in the heart of a little town in Shropshire Hills. In store, you will find The Poetry Pharmacy’s pharmacist on hand to prescribe poetic medicine for a complicated mix of emotions.

The first of the 3 bath bombs from the Lush X Poetry Pharmacy collaboration that I would like to introduce you to is the Wild Remedy Bath Bomb. Lush PR were kind enough to send this bath bomb out to me and I have bought 2 more since. (I liked it that much!)
As I mentioned earlier, the bath bombs within this collection are truly unique to anything Lush have released before. Each of the bath bombs have a hidden paper insert inside of them with a short poem on it relating to the bath bombs name.
Colour wise and to look at, the Wild Remedy bath bomb is quite similar to the Avobath bath bomb, although Wild Remedy is a slightly darker green.
The idea behind the poetry bath bombs are that they are an easy way to immerse yourself in perfume and poetics. This strong scented, green-bath-bomb was created to remind you of the inspiration to be found in nature.
Ingredients wise the Wild Remedy bath bomb contains Siberian fir needle oil, benzoin resinoid, fir needle absolute, tagetes oil and green tea powder.
The Lush-scent-family that it comes from is called Fresh As. You’ll recognise it if you have used the cult-classic Needles and Pines shower jelly before. Wild Remedy’s scent is very outdoorsy, rich, and herbaceous. It’s incredibly refreshing and fits in with the theme of Wild Remedy perfectly.
As soon as you put the Wild Remedy bath bomb in the water you are greeted with a gentle hiss, tiny green bubbles erupt from the bath bomb as it starts to turn your bath water an inviting shade of green. Its refreshing outdoorsy scent fills your bathroom, it’s like bathing in a forest with only the trees to keep you company.
After only 3 minutes the Wild Remedy bath bomb has fully dissolved revealing its hidden poem. I’d like to point out that not everyone gets the same poem. I am unsure on how many different poems are put in each of the bath bombs BUT have seen other people get a different poem to me that also relates to the Wild Remedy theme.
My skin laps up the silky-smooth bath water and feels so soft to the touch. Wild Remedy won’t give you any bath art, but it will give you a truly relaxing bathing experience. The scent lasts on my skin long after I have left the bath.
Overall, I am very impressed with the Wild Remedy bath bomb, its scent is stunning, and the added aspect of poetry makes it all the better of an experience!
