    Hard to figure out real clue here. Is it sweet, sweet nothings or zip? I don’t think it’s times but a times synonym may help solve puzzle. Of course I could be totally wrong

    Got to be in right frame of mind to do these word puzzles, IMHO

    Ph wouldn’t put a naughty one in there would he?

    It's FASTEN

    Sweet nothings (sweet FAS)
    times symbol is x which is TEN in Roman numerals.
    Zip (as a verb) can mean fasten.

    No ,not skullcap. I associate this plant with nettles. 'sno wonder this one is a bit tricky. (He was famous for his curses)

    Hang on ,that's a clue? No Captain America wasn't it.Wrong Captain. (you have used erica; suppose that works but it wasn't that -seems any plant can be medicinal)

    What's your clue again ?
    Sounds like a red herring!(6) or
    Skullcap? Sounds like a red herring! (6)
