Three pounds turns out to be a lot of shea butter. I used it on my cockatoo's feet, and she stopped picking right away and hasn't started again (and I've tried everything on her). Then I used it on my very rough hands, and it's made a huge difference. The scent is a little different, but not bad. I recommend it to anyone who paints, gardens, works with machinery, or just wants really soft skin. With this three pounds, you can share with friends and family!
