Pixie Dust (also known as Fairy Dust) is a magical, sweet-smelling, glitter-like powder that allows anything covered in it to fly. It is an essential component in the daily lives of the Never Fairies, as it allows them to fly and can assist with performing their talents. Pixie Dust also can be used by humans, such as Peter Pan and Lizzy, as long as they think happy thoughts.
Pixie dust is sifted, rationed, measured, packed, and delivered to the fairies of Pixie Hollow each day. It is the job of Dust-talents to make sure everyone receives one full fairy-sized teacup's worth of dust (including themselves). 
The majority of the Pixie Dust in Pixie Hollow is kept at the Pixie Dust Mill. However, sometimes fairies will save up their unused Pixie Dust for other purposes. Zarina, for instance, uses her extra Blue fairy dust to perform Pixie Dust Alchemy after the events of the fourth sequel.

Pixie Dust Variants
There are 4 main types of Pixie Dust that are used throughout Pixie Hollow
Gold Pixie Dust
Gold, golden or mostly commonly, "pixie dust", comes from the heart of the Pixie Dust Tree. It flows through the tree's branches to the dust mill, and to the Winter Woods, as winters fairies could not cross borders. It can birth fairies, changing a laughter into a fairy form and without it, fairies' wings do not support them, only floating briefly before landing again. "Pixie lore" tells that that a bit of Gold Pixie Dust remained "hanging in a cloud over the cliffs on the Northern Shore of Never Land" after the destruction of the Pixie Dust Tree.
Fairy (Pixie) Dust
Also occasionally called "pixie dust" is what's known as Fairy Dust. Fairy Dust is the replacement to the traditional Gold Pixie Dust, granted by Never Land after the destruction of the Pixie Dust Tree. Once a year, dust keepers gathers Mother Dove's molted feathers, grind it into powder and store it in hollowed-out-and-dried pumpkins at the dust mill. It augments fairies' talents, to the point of making talents go beyond their skills. It allows water-talent fairies moving and shaping liquid-food, or tinker using the dust as glue / tightening objects.
The potency and quality of Fairy Dust also varies: Feathers from the chest are better suited to fix things; Those pulled out by force produce more potent dust, yet this process is painful to Mother Dove, and so most fairies look very negatively on anyone who does this. Pulling feathers from Mother Dove results in grounding the fairy for a month and banning them from ever coming near Mother Dove again. If Fairy Dust is not sifted, called Defective (Fairy) Dust, using it makes the fairy's talent so powerful it gets out of control (e.g. growing violent flowers uncontrollably). It can only be cured with talent-calming potion.
Blue Pixie Dust
Main Article: Blue Pixie Dust
Created once every 8 years during the Autumn Revelry, Blue Pixie Dust is the most powerful dust of them all. The dust is created by using the moonstone and exposing it to the Blue Harvest Moon's light at ninety degrees. Then, it is collected and carried in a parade back to the Pixie Dust Tree. To restore Pixie Dust Tree's strength- rejuvenating it- some of the fresh Blue Pixie Dust is used directly on the tree on the night of the Autumn Revelry. The rest is kept safely in a box at the Pixie Dust Mill, and can be purified by sifting it.
Twenty-six grains of Blue Pixie Dust is used daily, transforming the amount of Gold Pixie Dust "from a tickle to a roar." Without this dust, the Pixie Dust tree would wither and the gold dust would cease to flow.
Colored Pixie Dust
This collection of dusts, each with different names, are produced by pixie dust alchemy-talent fairies, mixing in different portions manifold ingredients, with gold and blue pixie dust. All colored pixie dusts are able to perform feats and skills associated with other talents, or in essence, "switch" talents. The recipes had specifications like the process order, how it was spun, measurements (e.g. cup, spoon) and so on.
Orange Pixie Dust
Also called Light Bender Dust, it has orange or yellow colors depending on the scene or media. It bends rays of moon and sun light. Recipes:
- Ten sunflower seeds (or three) smashed 8 times and ten gold pixie dust (five spoons) added to a beaker (with unspecified liquid), spin ten times counterclockwise, and one blue dust.
- Three orange acorn, two blue dewdrops and one blue dust, combined in a pan in the specific order (see above). Advanced version had an extra blue dust and a yellow sunflower (in parenthesis).
Purple Pixie Dust
Also called Fast-Flying Dust, moves wind, creating whirlwind, twisters, propelling subjects and making the fairy fly faster. Recipes:
- Twenty five feathers (or one) cut in six parts and nine gold dust (seven spoons) added to a beaker (with unspecified liquid), spin seven times clockwise, and one blue dust.
- Three purple feathers, two yellow sunflowers and one blue dust, combined in a pan in the specific order (see above).
- Advanced version had an extra blue dust and a white lilly.
Pink Pixie Dust
Also called Garden Talent Dust, make plants grow faster and stronger ("optimal plant growth") by sprinkling or touching on them, regardless of the surface, like earth or sand, and move plants out of the way such as vines.
- Flower petals in a beaker filled with water, for the "optimal effect," a ratio of five pieces of petal for every three drops of extract. Bubbling, pour the pink mixture (as droplets via three sifters structure with petal pieces) into a bowl of gold pixie dust and add two slivers of blue dust flake. It boils and pop violently until it explodes, being complete. (One petal was seen being cut, added to the beaker, yet two more were missing, being used either one petal and three drops or three petals and nine drops.)
- Twelve Petals (or four) cut in six parts and six gold dust (spoon) added to a beaker (with unspecified liquid), spin seven times clockwise, and one blue dust.
- Tutorial version: Two red gerber, one white lilly, one blue dust, combined in a pan in the specific order (see above). Normal version had: one extra white lilly and green leaf (in parenthesis). Advanced version had: an extra red gerber and a black sunflower seed [in brackets].
Water (Talent Fairy) Dust
Has a light blue color. Move water, like ocean, waterfall, geysers, creating waves, holes and passage ways. Can be used to help dying flowers.
- Five Dewdrops (or three) and three gold dust (three spoons) added to a beaker (with unspecified liquid), spin five times counterclockwise, and one blue dust.
- Two green leaves, two blue dewdrops, one purple feather, one blue dust, combined in a pan in the specific order (see above). Advanced version had an extra purple feather and one yellow sunflower (in parenthesis).

- In Disney's Jake and the Never Land Pirates, pixie dust is produced by the Fountain of Forever.
- Dream Dust is likely a reference to the Sandman's sand/dust, which makes children fall asleep.
- Blue Dust has been seen inside four different containers: Autumn Revelry's shell bowl, a dropper bottle (the size of a fairy's hand), a bag, and a glass vial.
- In Pixie Dust Powers, Blue Dust's dropper bottle was used to hold all Colored Pixie Dusts.
- Colored Pixie Dust is popularly known as "Alchemized Pixie Dust," despite never being called that in any Disney Fairies' media.
- Of all ten Colored Pixie Dusts mentioned, only 6 have ever been shown.
- In Zarina's Pixie Dust Experiments book, only one recipe shown was left unknown to what dust it was related, being possibly the unnamed tinker-talent dust. The ingredients used are also unknown.
- Bottles with colorful content can be seen at Zarina's cabin/laboratory. However, it is unknown if those were Colored Pixie Dust variants, or something else entirely.
