This sounds just like the answer I was looking for!!! I absolutely LOVE shea butter and I use it straight out of the jar (raw) on my skin and it is especially nice on my kids after a bath (I just finished putting some on them about 10 minutes ago!!), and it keeps in the moisture all day long, and helps control their childhood eczema and dry patches. For me, it has helped TREMENDOUSLY with my dry itchy legs, especially at night! My hubby and I will be laying there in bed watching tv, and I am scratching at my legs continuously, but since I started putting on the raw shea butter, NO MORE ITCHIES!!!!! This seems to happen to me every winter, so it is basically a miracle to me! The only problem is I CANNOT STAND the smell of unrefined shea, but I know of it's better healing qualities so would rather use it. I have been using the refined with fabulous results, but I would think mixing it with the unrefined would be awesome. Especially knowing that it is even better for the skin!!Soapmaker Man said:I actually buy both. I mix 35% unrefined to 65% refined shea. This percentage kills the unrefined odor, while giving it a slight yellowish overcast. You can use this mixture in body butters, either emulsified or just whipped butters. By mixing at this rate, the unrefined does add back some of the qualities the refining removes from the butter. I also only buy refined through natural processing like through clay and without chemicals. Tell me how you guys like this combo if you try it. I make up about a gallon at a time when I melt the 2 together and let solidify until ready for use.
