Many of the culinary herbs also have medicinal values, especially those like mints, rosemary, oregano, thyme and far more. Too, many barks and "wild" herbs used to be the only medicines used among the mountain folk of the south. Cherry bark tea and willow bark tea for example. BUT, some can be poisonous if used improperly like pennyroyal or too much wild cherry bark. Always study and know how much to take and how. Oregano oil is one of the most powerful antibiotics/antiseptics, but taken internally can also have horrible effects.
