The shea smell is only faintly noticable if I sniff the actual bars so I'm fairly confident I won't smell it when washing my hands, thank goodness.

Edit: I just smelled the soap and then the shea. Then I smelled the soap again and then the cocoa butter.... It's the cocoa butter I'm picking up on! I can't smell the shea in the soap! Ok, my next batch will be formulated with shea and no cocoa butter and THEN I'll truly know where the smell is coming from.
I forgot I said I'd at least try this before pitching the shea into the garbage. I just found the shea in the back of my cabinet so I guess I'm going to try it. I'm really not looking forward to it, but testing for the sake of knowledge is a worthy reason. Now, I just need to figure out what recipe and SF to use.
