I am making a sugar scrub and it calls for jojoba oil and almond oil.  I do not have almond oil.  Can i use olive oil in place of it or should i use all jojoba? or something else??  Thanks!

All four (sweet almond, jojoba, and grape seed and EVOO) are carrier oils.  So it just depends on what you like/what your budget is, I think....
