I've just stuck a bunch of thyme on a plate on my kitchen counter and let it sit there and it worked just fine.

Microwave in 30 second increments on paper towel.

Here's a good tutorial from The Kitchn. I prefer to freeze herbs because it preserves their fresh flavor. I simply put thyme and rosemary in Ziploc baggie stems and all. I process basil with just enough oil to create a paste.

Tie the stems with kitchen string into small bunches and hang (upside-down) in a cool, dry, aerated place until dried. The process might take longer if your home is more humid, but expect a week to start.
