However big you want to make your batch, use these basic measurements to create your scrub. 
TIP*** Add more oil to sugar ratio for less clumpy sugar scrub and to have more.

Sugar Scrub-
2 parts Brown Sugar
1 part oil (I chose grapeseed oil and olive oil)
      Grapeseed oil- General carrier oil in aromatherapy, nice balance of oleic, linoleic, palmitic, and stearic acids. It is emolient and toning to all skin types and naturally non-allergic.
       Olive Oil-   Protects skin from Melanoma, anti-inflammatory, helps maintain collagen and elastin, hydrates dry skin, and more!
4-5 drops Essential oil of choice ( I chose tea tree for it's effects on the skin)
       Tea Tree oil- Anti-viral and Anti-fungal
1 part coffee grinds (fresh or use old grinds from making coffee
Mixing bowl
Spoon

Bottle It up!
Old jar ( I boiled out an old jelly jar, dried it, and it was ready to refill)
Label
If a gift, ribbon or some crafty way to wrap and make pretty
Spoon attached for easier scooping once it gets low
