Mirror Adhesive

Hi, I'm new here. I am making some small hand mirrors and I am wondering what type of adhesive is best for gluing the glass mirror to the wood body. I am guessing that it would have to be flexible to allow for movement of the wood. Any suggestions?

I forget what my glass supplier recommends. I use straight silicon for glass, but it's acids will eat the mirror backing.

Thanks for all of the tips, I picked up some of the mirror adhesive from Lowe's and will give that a try. These are very small mirrors, 3" diameter, so a whole caulk gun tube seems excessive but it was the cheapest way to go, only 5 bucks and readily available.
