Weekday Wonderings: How to use a solubilizer or Natrasorb Bath in a bath bomb"

I'm still working through all your comments and messages, so here are a few more...

In this post, Back to Basics: Bath bombs, Vintage Blue asked: I have to say after trying so many recipe I absolutely love yours. Now I'd hate to mess with perfection but I gotta ask. If I wanted to add poly to this to help disperse the oils a bit more how do it calculate for that" And then if I wanted to add powdered milk, how do I adjust for that"

Vintage Blue wrote again after I answered the previous question: When adding the Natrasorb am I calculating 3% of the powdered ingredients or 3% of the entire recipe"

Thank you very much for your kind words about the recipe. I really like it, but I must warn those of you who live in more arid climates that this recipe is designed for where I live in British Columbia as it's really humid here. If you find these won't stick together, try a few spritzes of alcohol or witch hazel to bind them without setting off the fizz.

I don't recommend using milk in products like this as they are unpreserved and can go off in a matter of days. (Believe me, I know this from personal experience, and it smells just awful!!!) As using polysorbate in this, you could substitute it for a titch of the oils - ideally, we use polysorbates at 1:1 at least - and use it that way. 
For instance, I use 13 grams of oil in my recipe, so I would add about 13 grams of polysorbate 80 (possibly more, it's a try and see what works kind of situation), 13 grams of PEG-40 hydrogenated castor oil, or more than 13 grams caprylyl/capryl glucoside (ECOcert, green solubilizer, but super sticky, so make a small batch to see what you think first). 
So my recipe would look like this...
BATH BOMBS WITH SOLUBILIZER120 grams sodium bicarbonate60 grams citric acid13 grams carrier oil13 grams solubilizer4 grams fragrance oilTitch of colour of some sort (I use LabColours liquid, a few drops)Spritz of witch hazel or alcohol to bind it. 
Mix the powdered parts together very well and make sure there aren't any big hunks of baking soda or citric acid in the mix. Add your oil and fragrance oil and drip the colour into the oils. Mix really well - it might fizz a bit. This is normal. Press into the moulds very hard - pack a layer as hard as you can, then pack the next layer, until you've reached the top - and wait at least 45 minutes before removing. If you live in a high humidity area, wait longer.
I think I should have this recipe in percentages so it's easier to make changes, so let's do that now. 
I have a total of 210 grams in this recipe at the moment. Let's divide each ingredient by 210 to get our percentage...
120 grams sodium bicarbonate/210 grams = 57.1% sodium bicarbonate60 grams citric acid/210 grams = 28.6% citric acid13 grams carrier oil/210 grams = 6.2% carrier oil13 grams solubilizer/210 grams = 6.2% carrier oil4 grams fragrance oil/210 grams = 2% fragrance oil
So the new recipe looks like this when I round up ...
