It is common to get to the end of a spice container and find your spices have lost their vitality and aroma as time has gone by. This will more-often-than-not be due the way your spices are being stored. Spices contain volatile oils which is where their flavor and aroma comes from. These oils can be activated through the methods of grinding or heating. However, when your spices are exposed to things such as heat, light, moisture or air it can disrupt and release the oils, drawing out all flavor and aroma from your herbs and spices.
