Some of the best herbs to grow (or forage) for medicinal purposes are:

  • Thyme
  • Purple-flowered oregano (origanum vulgare)
  • Echinacea angustifolia
  • Calendula
  • Oats (for depression and adrenal fatigue; a 2-by-4-foot area will grow enough for a family for at least a year)
  • Alfalfa
  • Comfrey
  • Garlic
  • Onion
  • John’s Wort
  • Dandelion
  • Plantain
  • Burdock
  • Nettle
  • Violet
  • Mallow (wild or marsh),
  • Elder (elderberry)
  • Purslane
  • Plantain
  • Tulsi (Indian basil or sacred basil)
  • Lemon balm
  • Mullein
  • Rugosa rose, dog rose, wild rose
  • Cayenne (It must be over 90,000 heat units)

Although not cayenne peppers, Habaneros and other hot peppers would also probably work.
