Don't jar them up unless you are sure that they have not soaked up a lot of humidity. Herbs must be very completely dry, or they will mould in a sealed jar. That is why I mostly use paper bags.
Plastic can leach smells, colours, stuff from the plastic....I stay away form plastic in general. But that is just me.
Hope this helps!
Since you are storing, not drying it yourself, the important thing is to keep moisture and light out. Big ol' paper bag from the grocery store, folded tightly will work in a pinch. Best option is probably somethig more sturdy, unless you go through it quickly?
(For my nettle, I have a big 'crock' with a lid, like many kitchens store flour/sugar in, and my oatstraw is in an old Cookie tin!)
