If you don't have the right conditions for sun-drying herbs, they can be done just as well in the oven.
clean, dry, fresh herb branches, sprigs, or leaves
Spread the clean, dry herbs evenly in one layer on a baking sheet. Place the herbs in a preheated 140 degree oven for about 45 minutes. Put a spoon in the oven door to prop open slightly for the last 15 minutes. Remove from the oven and stand for 12 hours, or overnight.

Place the whole branches, sprigs, or leaves in a labeled airtight container. Keep for up to 6 months in a cool, dark place.

OVEN-DRYING TIP: Oven-drying is a more exact method than sun-drying; the only problem can be in keeping your oven at the correct, low temperature. Your aim in drying is not to heat the food, but rather to remove the moisture from it.
