Homemade Seasoning Blends – Nine DIY Recipes – Add great flavor to your food and save money with these simple to make seasoning blends!  Make great gifts too!

I love to have these spice blends on hand for adding flavor to all of our favorite recipes.  Making your own spice blends is a great way to control your sodium intake and save lots of $$!

Many store bought spice blends include additives and MSG and a small bottle can run up to $4-5!  I love that these recipes are totally clean and controlled by me and are super cheap to make!  By stocking up on individual spices at my local dollar sore, I save even more money. 🙂

Each of these recipes makes approximately 6-8 Tablespoons of mix and can easily be reduced, doubled, or tripled.  This is a great project for kids!  Set them up with bowls, measuring spoons, and spices and put their mixing and math skills to work.  Add labels as desired, with cute ribbons, and you have a great homemade gift.

Here are a few recipes for inspiration as you get started using your homemade blends…
