How we package and sell our Spices, Herbs and Spice Blends

We believe in offering the freshest spices possible and highly recommend that you only buy enough spice to last you about 6-12 months (whole spices can go 1-2 years). Because of our dedication to offering the best quality spices in sizes that meet your needs, we offer you a wide variety of packaging sizes to choose from.

½ Cup Jar

We prefer to use glass to store our home spices instead of using plastic. These are 4 oz. glass jars that hold a half cup of product each. Most products come with a sifter. Larger herbs and some large flake salts do not come with sifters. Our 1/2 jars are then heat sealed with a shrinkband. These are packed full, sold by the weight of the product and the weight varies according to the product density (i.e. you get more salt by weight than you do a dry herb like oregano).

1 oz.

Comes in a re-sealable bag and is perfect when you only need just a little or want to sample something new. This is shipped in a double bag where the outer bag is heat sealed.

4 oz.

Comes in a re-sealable bag and is often bought to re-fill jars, often with some left over for additional partial refills, of your favorite spices, herbs and blends. The outer bag is heat sealed.

1 lb.

Comes in a re-sealable bag and is frequently used by both home and professional chefs that are preparing larger amounts of food. The outer bag is heat sealed.

Chef Size

This is a bulk size for those who frequent the kitchen and know they reach for one thing more than others. Chef sizes can hold about 32 fluid ounces of product but depending on the product the weight will vary. They are perfect for home cooks or small restaurants. These are closed off with a safety seal, so unlike with our half cup jars there is no heat sealed shrinkband around the cap.

5 lb.

The 5lb bulk size works best in most professional environments. Comes in a re-sealable bag and the outer bag is heat sealed. Some products, depending on their volume, may come in two 2.5 pound bulk bags or a small box.

25 lb.

This is the next step up from the 5 lb size and provides a bigger bang for your buck. Comes in a ship alone box.

40 lb. / 50 lb.

This is our industrial size packaging. This size works well for larger multi-location shops, restaurants and food manufactures. Comes in a ship alone box.


The earth’s health is very important to us. We believe in a reduce, reuse, recycle mindset and as such attempt to use as little packaging as possible without compromising the quality of our products. This means we may reuse some of our packing materials, like packing peanuts or occasionally boxes themselves. Our team is always looking for new ways to lessen our impact on the environment.
