Spices and herbs do not need any special care. However, it is better if you keep them in airtight containers and store them in dark, cool places. If you have a cupboard in your kitchen and you want to keep all spices in it, glass jars with tight-fitting lids are perfect for this purpose. Save your spices from direct sunlight for longer use.

No. It is not a wise choice to store them in a refrigerator. Some people believe a refrigerator provides an ideal environment to store spices due to its dark and cold nature. However, it also contains humidity that can cause mold or bacteria in spices. Therefore, we do not recommend storing spices in a freezer or refrigerator.
