St John's wort (Hypericum perforatum)

[see discussion]
Christiankraut: Herb. Hyperici. Cbristi Blut: Pulv. temper. rubr. Christidornki:irner : Fruct. Card. Mariae. Cbristignadenkraut: Herb. Hyperici.

This is a popular herb that I would expect in a medicinal tea.
Volkstümlich wird das Echte Johanniskraut auch als *Herrgottsblut* bezeichnet.[1] Der Name bezieht sich auf Johannes den Täufer, da die Pflanze um den Johannistag (24. Juni) herum blüht.[2] Auch der englische Name St John's wort und der spanische Name hierba de San Juan gehen auf Johannes den Täufer zurück.

You could probably put the Polish and then German in parentheses or vice versa to cover your [self].

PS The "herb" in "herbalchemist" doesn't mean marijuana.

Again, this was just a very probable guess!
As we saw from the related question for RUBRICK, it's probably from the same collection of folk remedies as this one:
Die Krummhübler Laboranten: vom Werden, Wirken und Vergehen einer schlesischen Heilmännerzunft. Ein Beitrag zur Volkskunde Schlesiens und zur Geschichte der deutschen Volksmedizin
Hans Reitzig - 1952
„Und hilft solcher Thee eigentlich gegen alles Uebel, vorzüglich gegen die Melancholey (!) — auch gegen die Gicht, Lungen- Brustkrankheiten, und den Scharbock": Ehrenpreis, Kragel, Scabiosen, Christinelkraut, Schafgarben, Rosenblätter, Betomenblumen, Gänseblümel, Taubenkropf und Natterblätter.

St. John's wort is known for usage as an herbal tea to combat depression and anxiety.

The Rubrick in the related Kudoz question is likely the key ingredient (ie Mennige) in Christihausmannspflaster (aka Emplastrum fuscum camphoratum). This Pflaster is also known as Christpflaster and Christiwundheilpflaster. Christiwundkraut corresponds to Herba Hyperici.
