Dried herbs do have a shelf life and can dramatically lose their flavor after a few months. I don’t know about you, but I’m always throwing out half packets of stale herbs and spices! By making your own mix, you are less likely to be throwing out individual packets as it’s so easy to incorporate into dishes.
