Neem oil and pyrethrin are both organic methods of insect control in herbs and veggies. It's best to identify and treat specific pests than to simply spray to hope you'll avoid pests on your herbs. Inspect your plants on a daily basis. If you find insects, pick them off or wash them off with plain water. This way your plants will remain relatively pest free and you won't have to resort to spraying them.
