I think it may be the shea butter as well. Sometimes unrefined shea can have a very earthy smell to it and is hard to cover up with EO's/FO's. I just recently switched over to refined for my body butters due to this issue.

This is reaching - but have you used this type of container before? Is it possible the EOs are damaging the plastic? I've had some EOs chew up plastic measuring spoons.
