      Hmm, all culinary herbs can technically translate to medicine....
      For local grown spices:
      garlic
      onion
      red pepper
      thyme
      oregano
      horseradish
      fennel
      basil

      silk road spices:
      cinnamon
      ginger
      clove
      anise
      cardamom
      turmeric

      and not necessarily culinary, but important medicine:
      peppermint
      lemon balm
      comfrey
      calendula
      dandelion
      plantain

      If you could have only 20 cooking herbs and spices (plus salt as the 21st item) and wanted at least half of them to be multiuse, what would you choose?   Would you focus on spices of a particular cuisine or select a core group that works for many cuisines and maybe a few for spscific suisines?  Would you stick to herbs and spices that can be grown in your area or would you choose the world as your garden?
       
      Herbs and Spices may be fresh or dried or otherwise preserved. 
       
      For the multiuse part consider what else the herb or spice could be used for in addition to cooking.  It might be good for medicine, cosmetics and toiletries, dyes, or other uses.  Even better if it has more than one additional use :-).  More than 10 of them can be multiuse if you like.
       
      (PS this does not include condiments like vinegar, prepared mustard (Mustard seed is ok), or fish sauce.  That's a future question.)
