Easy Body Sugar Scrub

This is the short and easy tutorial that was due Tuesday but due to technical problems, I was not able to post. And here it is.
I love a good bath after a hard day, there is something about a good scrub that makes me feel better, cleaner. I like to keep it chemical-free, so I use this recipe.

Body and Face Sugar Scrub
You need:
-Sugar, preferably brown sugar.
-oil of your choice, I used organic 100% virgin olive oil.
- a jar to keep your scrub in, with a lid, I used a baby food jar.

Fill the bottom of the jar with oil.
Fill the rest of the jar with sugar leaving enough room to mix.
Add something for scent, if you want: I added almond essential oil to mine.
Do not add anything that contains alcohol or chemicals.
Use it as a scrub with a bath pouf or a washcloth.

As soon as my machine is fixed will make a bath pouf from Disney's tutorial:
