In the fall, collect the green black walnut hulls recently fallen from trees. Only
select hulls that have less than 50% black discoloration. The more green, the
better. Do not use cracked hulls. The actual walnut is inside, but only the whole ball is used since the active ingredient is in the green outer hull. Black walnut hulls may look and smell like small limes.
Your largest stainless steel or glass (not aluminum, ceramic, plastic,
enamel, or Teflon) pots or bowls.
Black walnuts in the hull, each one still at least 50% green, enough to fill
the pot to the top.
Grain alcohol, about 50% strength, or regular vodka. Enough to cover the
Vitamin C powder (capsules are fine)
Caution: Black Walnut Hulls can stain counter tops, clothing and may cause
contact dermatitis. Handle carefully.
Wash the walnut hulls carefully with water that does not have laundry
Put them in the pot and cover completely with the alcohol or vodka.
Sprinkle on 1 tsp. vitamin C. Cover with lid. Let set for three days.
Add another tsp. vitamin C. Use funnel to pour into glass bottles, preferably amber bottles. If amber is not available, store in a dark place. Better yet, store in freezer.
Discard walnuts (squirrels love them!).
The vitamin C helps to keep the color green, as does the non-chlorinated water if you use grain alcohol. Potency is strong for several years if unopened, even if it darkens slightly.
When preparing the walnuts, wash only with cold tap water. Rinse with distilled,
unfiltered water to remove all chlorine. You may need to use a brush on areas
with dirt. The pot of soaking walnuts should not be refrigerated.
Reducing Exposure to Air Tips
Exposure to air causes the tincture to darken and lose potency very quickly. To
reduce air exposure, fill the pot as much as possible while still keeping a snug
fitting lid. It is better to put tincture in many small bottles rather than one large one in order to reduce repeated exposure to the air once opened. Store bottles in freezer for maximum potency.
Grain Alcohol Tips
If you cannot use vodka, there are several ways to make a 50% grain alcohol solution. Some states sell Everclear, 95% alcohol. Mix this half and half with distilled, unfiltered, water. Other states have Everclear that is 76.5% alcohol. Mix this two parts Everclear, to one part water. Do not use flask-size Everclear; it must be 750 mlor 1-liter. Smaller bottles may have wood alcohol or isopropyl alcohol contamination.
Dosage: Only take black walnut tincture under the direction of a licenced healthcare professional. Wormwood (artemisia annua or artemisia absinthe) as well as freshly- ground cloves are often recommended as part of the anti-parasite strategy.
