Herbs are sun worshipers for the most part. Most flavorful herbs don't thrive in inadequate light our houses provide. Herbs don't tolerate north-facing windows, or any window that gets less than four hours of direct sunshine a day. Even if your indoor herbs get their four hours of direct sunshine daily, to grow well they'll need some supplemental light.
