Pikachu always seemed like such a happy and peppy character, so I thought a happiness sugar scrub was the perfect fit for the most recognizable of Pokemon characters. Making the sugar scrubs in his iconic colors makes this a beautiful gift for the Pokemon fan in your life.
How to Make a Happy Pikachu Sugar Scrub:
First, gather together your ingredients:
- 1 cup sugar
- 2-3 Tablespoons coconut oil
- Red, yellow and black food dye
- Happiness essential oil blend (shared below)
- Small container or mason jar
Note: We used black gel food dye for the black portion of the sugar scrub.
Happiness Essential Oil Blend
In a small glass jar, blend your happiness oil:
- 50 drops Lavender
- 35 drops Valor
- 30 drops Stress Away
- 15 drops Patchouli
- 15 drops Vetiver
Add this oil blend to the coconut oil before adding to the sugar.
Measure out your ingredients into a large bowl.
Mix together the sugar and oils until they resemble wet sand.
Add extra coconut oil as needed.
Divide the sugar into three small bowls and add your food dye to make the yellow, red and black colors for Pikachu:
- for the black: 1/4 teaspoon black food dye (we used gel)
- for the red: 4 drops red
- for the yellow: 4 drops yellow
Layer the sugars in your container or mason jar to make a nice pattern representing the colors of Pikachu.I have to tell you about these awesome tiny Pokemon characters I found the other day. I got an entire set of 144 for less than 10 cents a piece. My kids have been using these in all our Pokemon recipes and play ideas.
To use, scoop a small amount into your hand and exfoliate skin with a bit of water.
Do you have a happy Pokemon fan in your life who would love to receive this peppy gift?
