Sage: this common herb is well known as a strong germ and flu fighter, as well as an aromatic antidepressant. Sage is said to increase one's artistic abilities by stimulating the throat Chakra. It is also soothing to a sore throat and cough. 

Thyme: this plant is highly antiseptic and anti fungal, making it useful in the treatment of flu, colds, sore throats, coughs, chest infections, bronchitis, congested ears and nose, and sinusitis. Nicholas Culpepper (1616-1664) described thyme as a "notable strengthener of the lungs." In addition to aiding digestion, encouraging deep breathing and ensuring recuperative sleep, thyme is also said to increase one's psychic abilities by relaxing the nervous system. 

Rosemary: this aromatic leaf help in the absorption of food and nutrients, improves circulation and memory, reduces headache, and has strong antioxidant, antibacterial and anti-fungal properties. It is an invigorating herb that imparts as zest for life. 

Lavender: these flowers are antiseptic, antibacterial, stress and headache reducing, and the aromatic oil is used as an antidepressant as well as on the skin to heal burns and cuts. 

Black pepper: this peppercorn aids in indigestion, flatulence, heartburn, nausea, mental fogginess and greatly reduces excess mucous in the sinuses, nose and throat. Its warming and drying energetics makes black pepper a great blood mover and an effective agent in fighting off colds and flu. 

Hyssop: this often undervalued herb is used to treat coughs, bronchitis, sore throats, common colds, asthma, and generally opens up the respiratory system. It is also detoxifying, antiviral, anti-inflammatory, and highly anti-infectious. Hyssop is mentioned in the bible as an important antimicrobial used by Moses. 

Raw, local honey: raw honey is medicine in of itself and is considered the oldest known food to mankind, being regularly gathered even before the cultivation of land. Honey is synonymous with happiness and fulfillment, and is added to food and drink to emphasize a good mood. It is often used to treat indigestion, headache, to sooth sore throats, boost the immune system, inhibit violent coughing, and suppressing the onset of cold and flu. This nectar is sacred to many gods, especially earth goddess Demeter and the Egyptian sun god Ra.
