Howdy tsheldon-ga,

Probably the best way to handle this is to point your friend to the
following web page and have them look on that page for the herbs that
you want them to reference.  The page has the herbs you mention listed
in English and Japanese.

"Herb Names (Japanese)"

If you can't view the above page properly through Internet Explorer (IE)
etc. you can put the full web address into the Monash University ACCESS-J
Japanese WWW Page Viewer to do so.

Here are the three herbs, in Japanese, as well.

- ????

Lady's Slipper
- ???????? - literally "slipper of your lady"
- ?????? - literally "slipper of woman"
- ???????? - this is what the herb page uses

Have your friend look for "????" (slipper) on the herb web page above.

Valerian Root
- ????? ? - "?" means "root"

Have your friend look for "?????" on the herb page.

If you need any clarification, please feel free to ask.

Search strategy:

Google search on: "Chamomile"

Google search on: "Lady's Slipper"

Google search on: "Valerian Root"

I also used the Google "Translate" facility to double check translations.

Apologies, but the link to Google's "Translate" facility is this instead.

Thanks so much; that link is everything that grows that I could
possibly think up!  (I'll have a lot of katakana practice, it seems).
