coagulating spices

Help! A bunch of my brand new salt based spice mixes from Penzeys are coagulating in all this humid weather. I can't even shake them out. They are turning into rock hard cylindrical blobs. Is there a way to reverse this process or keep it from happening in the future? Is this batch shot?

  1. Hydroscopic mixes can be rehabilitated by storing them in the refrigerator---I do this with tomato powder and a friend's mom's ground garam masala.
