Default Gruit Herbs

Does anyone have a list, or could we create one, of the herbs that can be used in beer as a substitute for the preservative qualities of hops? And how they are utilized to best access these properties.

So far I know Yarrow has all of the antimicrobial/antiseptic qualities of hops, and that you boil the leaves in much the same way, but I was hoping there would be others as well.

Some of the herbs I'm already planning on using in my upcoming experiments in Gruit: Licorice, Spruce tips, Ginger, Anise, and in at least one I will be using Yarrow
