A 'Herb is an item that heals around 50 HP to one character. Herbs can be bought at every shop in both games for 10 coins, and can be sold for 7. Herbs are extremely useful early on in both games, considering that the player will not have access to either a Mercury Adept or enough Djinni to have a character than can be used for consistent healing at that point in the game, and will only have the Cure Psynergy Series for recovery of HP.
