Homemade Italian Seasoning Mix Recipe

Making your own seasoning mixes allows you to tailor them to your tastes. It also gives you control over the quality and saves you a few pennies. When I make my own seasoning mixes, I am able to save even more money by using herbs that I have grown and dried myself. It is still early enough in the season for you to start an herb garden for yourself.

How to Make Italian Seasoning

You can make Italian Seasoning Mix with herbs commonly found in your pantry.


  • 2 tablespoons oregano
  • 2 tablespoons basil
  • 2 tablespoons parsley
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon rosemary


  1. In a small bowl, combine all of the ingredients. Mix well.
  2. Store in an airtight container.


Store in an airtight container for up to 6 months. I reuse spice jars to store my spice mixes.

More spice mixes you can make from scratch:
