First of all let me tell you that herbal and organic colors are almost the same terms. Herbal color is extracted from the roots, leaves and stem of herbal plants, whereas organic color is nothing but herbs obtained by organic farming. Both come under natural holi colors.
Below given are some natural colors that are easily available.
Mehendi powder - green color
Turmeric powder - yellow color
Red Sandal wood - red color
Jacaranda flowers - blue color
The above mentioned natural colors are not only safe but also enhance the appearance of skin. They have anti bacterial and aniseptic properties.
Let us make this holi a happy and safe holi by making use of natural colors.
Happy holi.

Both herbal and organic colours are acquired from plants. In that sense they are natural and not synthetically produced. However, they are not the same products, even though they are often mistaken to be as one.
Herbal colours are made from plant extracts, wherein leaves, flowers, bark and plant roots are used to obtain required colours. These colours are free of chemicals, though there is no surety whether they are free of pesticides as well.
Organic colours like their herbal counterpart are also extracted from different parts of different plants. The only difference is the extracts are obtained from plants that are grown without the use of chemical fertilizers or pesticides or genetic engineering.
The advantages of playing with herbal and organic colours are –
1. They are eco-friendly and do not damage the environment
2. They are bio-degradable and quickly merge into our eco-system
3. Since these colours are non-toxic they are safe to use even on sensitive skin
4. They do not cause allergies and irritation generally associated with chemical colours

Herbal colors and organic colors both are free from chemical or preservatives. So basically when we say organic or herbal, they are usually made up of same substances.

For example, the yellow color is mixture of haldi and some other natural colors. Also the color variations are possible due to organic substances being used. Both of them are not harmful for the skin or the body in general. They can be mixed with water and applied on skin.

You can also find the colors being a bit expensive in some cases. The reason being the raw material is expensive to develop those colors. So there is not much of a difference apart from the substances used in them.
