I love preparing my own homemade seasoning mixes. It only takes a few minutes and that way I know exactly what is in them and can easily customize them to my tastes.This Italian Seasoning Mix is just one example of the homemade seasoning mixes that I like to make and keep on hand!

Made with just a few ingredients that you most likely already have on hand, it makes it so much easier on those busy weeknights to add to chicken as it bakes, sprinkle in as I’m making spaghetti sauce, or even to just quickly add to vegetables for additional flavor as they cook. You can also use this in place of the garlic and other spices in my easy homemade Italian Dressing recipe. I comes together in a snap!

When I make it, I make sure to make enough to have a good little supply to get me through a few months. Since I’m using all dried spices and seasonings, it is shelf stable in the pantry as long as any of your other opened spices would be. Of course, I go through mine pretty quickly!

To make my own Italian Seasoning Mix, I use basil, oregano, thyme, rosemary, garlic, onion and salt.

If you like to add a little heat to yours, you can include a bit of red pepper as well. I prefer to add the red pepper separately to dishes based on what I’m making.

If you use fresh onion and garlic more in your cooking, you can omit them from this seasoning mix as well. You can also omit the salt if you prefer to salt your dishes to taste once prepared. I know many who do, so that is always an option.

With this recipe, you can reduce it to make less if you only need a little bit, make it as I have to have a good supply to last a little while or to share some with a friend. You can also increase the recipe to give as gifts!

Here’s my homemade Italian Seasoning Mix recipe. I hope you love and use it as much as we do!

  1. Thank you , I love it

  2. LOVING this idea. . .and so easy, since most of us have these spices and more already in our spice cabinet ? I will definitely be trying this. . .Can’t think of one reason why this would be a 5-star recipe, as most are. ☺️ I come from a long line of Italian Cooks. One of my Husbands favorite stories to tell . . .is about Sunday’s at Grandma’s. His story is about the Pot of Spaghetti Meat Sauce cooking on the store. . .there was always a group sitting at the kitchen table and he was one. . .He would watch each of my aunt’s (grandma had 12 kids, 8 were girls, at least 5-6 were usually there) walk through the kitchen, stir and taste the sauce, then add a sprinkle of one spice or another. By dinner, it was amazing but don’t think anyone could really be exact on what was in it ? When I got married and my mom wrote down the recipe (or sort of recipe), I looked at her and said, really ?. . .she said sorry I can’t be more exact. . .but I did master it and then. . . Guess what? I did the same thing to my daughters ?

  3. Is there any reason the dried spices cannot be put into spice blender and pulverized? If they were fresh herbs and spices, I wouldn’t mind putting them directly into the pot, but as dried, I think I would like to pulverize them first to blend. I use powdered herbs and spices in bread dough often to punch up the flavors of the bread/pita.

  4. This is an easy recipe that I can make since I have all these spices anyway!

  5. I like to make my own spice mix too. This I am definitely making this week. Love it.

  6. Can I omit the rosemary. I don’t like Rosamary

  7. Thanks for the idea! Will definitely try making this soon! Thanks for sharing, Robyn! 

  8. How much oil and vinegar and spice mix would I need to make salad dressing? Thanks. 

  9. Loved it!  Used a mortar and pestle to grind up the spices, particularly the rosemary which can be a bit prickly if left whole.

  10. Love this recipe. I have a problem with all the ready made mixes that add too much salt so I love these that have been published for us to use and enjoy the foods we still love

  11. I am anxious to try this recipe. I keep Italian seasoning on hand and on my last trip to the store they were out of Italian seasoning. One of my favorite vegetable dishes is roasted fresh zucchini, peppers, broccoli, and mushrooms with a little olive oil and liberal amount of Italian seasoning. With this recipe I won’t run out of Italian seasoning for my favorite vegetable dish!

  12. THANK YOU! Needed this recipe “in a pinch!” I had everything on hand except rosemary. My son asked for pizza in english muffins. You save my night! THANK YOU

  13. Guess what I’m including in my made from home gift baskets…. Thank You for the wonderful recipe. My friends and family will appreciate this so so much

  14. This was super easy to make and I didn’t have to buy anything extra seasoning to add into my lasagna. Thank you!!!

  15. Interesting that there is no pepper involved

    • As I stated in my post, if you want to add heat to the Italian seasoning mix, you can add a bit of red pepper. I sometimes add red pepper separately if a particular dish I am making needs a little more heat. But there are so many dishes I make with the Italian seasoning mix that does not need the pepper.
