We know Lush likes to boast about all its products being totally natural and fresh, but it seems that's been taken very literally when it comes to one massage bar in particular.
Because the Wiccy Magic Muscles massage bar, designed to loosen up and ease achy muscles, has been causing PLANTS to grow in people's bathrooms. Seriously, look at this photo.

And Rachel isn't the only one. This girl Hannah also reported the same thing happening. It's crazy.
PSA: When using a lush bar with beans in it, and you don't use that shower for a week this is what happens pic.twitter.com/gS3iQZCcnO— han ? (@hannahhallpetry) July 14, 2015
The bar, made from a "warming blend of cinnamon and peppermint essential oils," also contains aduki beans, which are said to help iron out any particularly stubborn knots. I've not got a clue what aduki beans are for, but a number of people now appear to be growing crops of them without even wanting to. It's bizarre.
It seems that the combination of warm temperatures, water, and the aduki beans are the perfect conditions for the beans to sprout. And it's quite sweet, really, if not also hugely annoying.
Helen Ambrosen, co-founder of Lush, spoke to BuzzFeed about the continuing mishap. She said: "We use organic aduki beans to create a texture in the massage bar, so that you've got small bead like shapes to massage the muscles.
"In order for the beans to germinate they must of been left in the shower for a few days. The results you get just go to show how fresh the ingredients really are."
Well, yeah, that's one way to look at it.
Ironically, on Lush's website the Wiccy Magic Muscles bar comes with a warning, but it's got nothing to do with the fact that you might inadvertently start growing an allotment in your bathroom. Instead, the warning simply states that the bar is made with ingredients that might melt in hot weather.
Think you need to get your priorities straight, Lush.
