    Naturally-occuring herbal antibiotics are milder than pharmaceutical-grade antibiotics, which some experts claim make them a good option for treating minor illnesses without overusing them and causing microbes to develop a resistance. Some sources of these antibiotics include reishi mushrooms, tea tree oil, goldenseal, and garlic. See the website below for more information, as well as a warning on using antibiotics in this manner.

    Lemon balm contains rosmaric acid and caffeic acid which are effective against a number of viral infections.  Rosmaric acid is effective against both oral and genital herpes.  Rosmaric acid is also and anti-inflammatory.  Lemon balm also contains a number of antioxidants that are beneficial to general health.  Lemon balm is very easy to grow, even in clay soils.  In fact it readily naturalizes in many areas.  It may be used as a tea or tincture.

    like others have said, preferably raw garlic, raw onion, along with herbs such as rosemary and oregano and many spices such as turmeric root or ginger root have been shown to have extremely high antimicrobial, antifungal and antiviral properties. The best way to obtain the benefits from these substances is to either eat them raw (such as eating a clove of garlic a day for example) or in their freshest forms such as in a herb salad or using ginger powder and tumeric powder in a tea. Also, black pepper has been proven to improve the efficacy of tumeric powder. So if you use tumeric in food or drink it in a tea, add some black pepper to it to increase its bioavailability to your body.
