Ground nutmeg can be used in potions to heal stomach flu and other illness that have to do with digestions

Gerbera are part of some cleansing potions

A Dracaena produces a red resin when cut, which is not by chance called 'Dragon's Blood' - it can be used in healing potions for injured dragons

Dried or fresh cumin is a main ingredient in potions to bind a lover to you - it only works when the person drinking the potion is really in love with you, otherwise you might end up with a creepy stalker, so be careful
