What's that smell?
Several weeks ago I was in downtown Charleston when I came across a vendor selling raw, organic shea butter. The salesman said it came straight from West Africa. I put a little on my hands and was sold.
Elijah has very dry skin (not eczema) in the winter time. To the point that he leaves visible scratches on his body. I thought that this would be a great thing for him. So I bought some. Plus a few jars to give away.
The product is great. It truly makes your skin feel soft. Elijah's skin no longer feels like sandpaper and I have been putting it on Graham's scar.
There is one draw back. It doesn't smell so great. It is raw with no fragrance added. I don't mind it so much but my husband does. The first night he said to me, "What did you put all over the boys? They smell like cigarette smoke." I have also heard, "that stuff makes me gag" and "can you please put something else on them."
As I type this I am waiting for PF to fall asleep so that I can lather up my hands. He doesn't seem to be getting sleepy.
I also found a site that sells organic shea butter scented, maybe I should go that route, waiting for my husband to fall asleep each night could get old.
