I'm giving bath bombs to extend family and my friends for Christmas. I made little drawsting bags to put them in.

No, I used the recipe from Natural Beauty at Home by Janice Cox. I think next time I'll make them into balls instead of flowers. The flowers break too easily.

I use a recipe from Brenda Sharpe and I've always been happy with the results.

1 cup of baking soda
1/2 cup of citric acid
1/2 cup of cornstarch
1/3 cup of epsom salt (you could also use sea salt, kosher salt or even table salt though I've never tried it)

Blend dry ingredients in a ziploc bag. In a glass jar with tight lid, mix the following:

2 1/2 tablespoons light oil (I use 2 tbs almond oil and 1/2 tbs jojoba oil, but you could use olive oil, sweet almond oil, canola oil, etc. Do not use baby or mineral oil)
3/4 tablespoon water (rose/floral/regular)
40 drops essential oil or fragrance oil
1/4 teaspoon borax powder (found in the detergent section of most supermarkets)
a few drops of desired food coloring

I shake the jar to mix wet ingredients and then slowly add wet to dry ingredients, drizzling 1/2 teaspoon of liquid at a time and mixing quickly. Repeat until wet is completely mixed in. The idea is to not let it fizz. Mixture should begin to clump and hold shape when squeezed by the time all your liquid has been added. Press into molds. I use plastic Easter eggs, ice cube trays (with a little unscented PAM sprayed in), soap molds, paper dixie cups or jello molds. When using the Easter eggs or a plastic Christmas ball, pack plenty of the fizzie stuff in each half then press together firmly. Let dry for 24 hours before tapping firmly on the bottom of the mold with a butter knife and easing out. Keep in glass jar or wrap in plastic. Scent should last for 6 months.

I get my supplies from Magestic Mountain Sage (do a Google search for the website). They've got good prices on citric acid and epsom salts.

Nice! I make them for (and with) my 7 y/o cousin whenever she runs out. They make really nice gifts.

I like your little pouches. I'll have to make some of those!
