Anytime that ive dried herbs, I just hung it upside down in a dry place.
As for the lavender and mint, you can make teas or add them to baths.
I'm sure there's other ways to use them too!
Satchels for freshing drawers, or under pillows for relaxation!

Oh and you can stuff a pillow with them as well. I'd make sure there a zioper that so you can get in the pillow to change them out every once and a while thougg.

Hang them upside down.

I freeze mints and basils; I don't dry them
