How to use Seasonings/FAQ
Thank you for purchasing my Handcrafted Seasoning Blends, I hope you love yours! Whether you are a long-time customer, or you recently placed your first order, I would love to give you some of my top tips for using them as well as some customer favorite recipes!
Storage, Clumping, and Expiration
Due to the fact that I do NOT use fillers, additives, potato starch, silicon dioxide, or any other “flow agents” you may find that my blends that have a high amount of sea salt and chili peppers can “clump” up on you if you expose them to moisture. The best thing you can do to prevent this from happening is to store them in a cool, dry place. (I would even avoid keeping them near cooking surfaces on your counter). HOWEVER, please note that if the DO clump up they are perfectly fine, it means you have a super high-quality product. Just break them apart with your fingers, fork, or a knife.
In addition please note that your Handcrafted Seasoning Blends will last well beyond the expiration date on the bottom of the bottle (only on the 7 made by my co-packer). The FDA recommends a 2-year expiration but if they are stored properly they will last indefinitely.
Check out the back of each bottle, I have listed suggestions for every individual blend on its bottle! My social media platforms also contain great ideas, so be sure you are following me there (check out the links below). In addition, MANY of my blends mix and match well together (see below)!
As for the Inflammation Buster (I am asked about this constantly), here are some of the top uses. Coffee, yogurt, granola, waffles, pancakes, sweet potatoes, pulled pork, sprinkled on fruit, etc. Use it wherever you would use cinnamon!
ALL Seasonings are certified gluten-free! No sugar, dairy, additives, preservatives or flow agents. Low or no sodium.

Oh my word, this could be an endless list, but I will share with you the most common ones.
