You can dry herbs in the oven, just like the dehydrator, on the lowest temp. Check frequently. You can dry most herbs naturally by air drying on a drying rack, an old screen or even from a clothes hanger. Simply tie small bundles of your herb and hang in a warm, dry place with low light. After one week, check daily for dryness.
Hope you have good success with your basil and dill!
