Dry Herbes de Provence can be purchased in most supermarkets and will serve a variety of uses.  It is used to flavor grilled foods such as fish and meat, as well as vegetable stews. The mixture can be added to foods before or during cooking or mixed with cooking oil prior to cooking so as to infuse the flavor into the cooked food.  A tailored variety can be prepared at home.  The mix can vary in content and proportion. Usually, it will include thyme, bay leaf, rosemary, savory and basil. You can prepare your own blend using these herbs along with other quantities of aromatics such as lavender, fennel seeds and sage all depending on your personal taste.  Make sure the mix is kept in a jar with tight lid, sealed and stored away from direct sunlight.
