3. Motherwort or Creeping Charlie (it's hard to get the exact leaf shape by the photo)
4. Lavender
5. Oregano
6. Mullein or Lamb's Ears (again, fuzzy photo)

This was tough! Honestly, the only ones I got correct (without any research or Googling whatsoever) were the oregano (mainly because I use this herb ALL THE TIME - not just in cooking but also as a natural remedy for respiratory health concerns) and the dandelion.
