1. Why is my herb dying?
Always look for the early signs of any insect/fungal/ any other infections. Spay appropriate fungicides or pesticides as soon as any symptoms of such diseases are spotted. Watch out for snails and slugs.

Herbs are cool season plants. They struggle to grow in hot climatic situations. Also waterlogging in the soil is also harmful to plants. Use well drained potting soil for growing your herbs.
