    Hi there,

    I am making wedding favors for our wedding coming up and we are going to have include an evoo and tuscan spice mix for bread dipping. I have purchased 2 oz bottles that I am wondering if I can mix the dried spices in with the oil bottle or should I package the spices separately? Thanks in advance.

    It depends on your spice mix. Anything that has moisture in it (fresh garlic, fresh herbs) will result in rancid oil and possible safety issues.

    A somewhat smarmy (but you can get away with that at weddings) alternative is put the oil in one bottle with the bride's name on it and the spices in another bottle with the groom's name (or vice versa). Tie them together with a ribbon and tag with something about the marrying of the two flavors to become something more is symbolic of marriage.
