I have been researching..This is what I have found, to the best I can say.Hebrews 6:7 "For the earth which drinks in the rain that often comes upon it, and bears herbs useful for those by whom it is cultivated, received blessing from God..."

List of herbs, anise, Matthew 23:23, bitter herbs (include lettuce, homebound, horseradish, mint, e n d I v e, parsley, chicory, coriander, watercress, dandelion, tansy) Exodus 12:8, Numbers 9:11.

C a l a m u s (sweet cane) Exodus 20:23, Ezekiel 27:19. Green bay tree oil, Psalm 37:35,36.

Rose of Sharon oil, Song of Solomon 2:1, Isaiah 35:1-2,(cystuslabdanum) good for the immune system and also a mood elevator. 

There is a legend about the rose of Sharon... As I conclude this answer, by no means is this answer 100 percent all inclusive, I have to say I enjoyed this research. But, I like the legend very much.. My final statement is Jesus is ALL we Need ALL the time.
