Dear RM Agents and Readers,

I've been making Black Walnut Tincture for 3 years; yet never knew about he iodine. Thought you may find it interesting as well!

https://practicalselfreliance.com/black-walnut-tincture/

BLACK WALNUTS AND IODINE
Not only is black walnut tincture a potent medicine, itís also one of the few land-based sources of iodine. While you can forage for salt deposits inland or extract salt from plant material when youíre far from ocean salt sources, most inland sources of salt lack iodine. Black walnuts, specifically black walnut husks, are a great source of iodine in a pinch.

A black walnut tincture is easy to make at home, and all it takes is a fresh supply of ripe black walnuts. The walnuts themselves will still be perfectly good to eat since a black walnut tincture is made using the green outer husk rather than the nut itself. The resulting tincture is used to purge parasites and as a topical anti-bacterial. It also has the added benefit of being an emergency iodine supplement.

Black Walnut Tincture

HARVESTING BLACK WALNUTS
Unless you have a backyard nut tree, youíve likely never seen the green husk on a walnut. Itís a fleshy coating that grows outside of the nut itself. Inside youíll find a hard nutshell, and then inside that is the nut meat. By the time walnuts reach the supermarkets, the soft fruit like outer coating has already been removed.

Black walnuts fall from trees right around the first fall frost. In Central Vermont that happens in mid-October, but theyíre harvested a bit earlier in northern areas and later further south. Black walnut grow wild in the eastern half of the United States, and they make up whole forests in some areas. Theyíre a tasty cold hardy nut tree, so theyíre commonly planted even in areas outside their wild range.

Beyond their nuts, black walnuts trees are one of more than two dozen trees that can be tapped for syrup, just like maples. Thatís just one more great reason to plant a black walnut tree. The nuts themselves are tasty, although they have a higher tannin content than the Persian walnuts you find in the stores these days.

Black walnuts taste best if the green hulls are removed as soon as possible so they donít leach into the nut and make them bitter. Since the outer husk of black walnuts is almost always a discarded waste product, a homemade black walnut tincture is a great way to put it to use.

BLACK WALNUT TINCTURE USES
I first learned about black walnut tincture as a natural remedy for intestinal parasites. A friend was trying to treat her dogís intestinal worms without resorting to harsh prescription de-wormer. While I canít speak to black walnut tinctureís supposed safety with pets, I know that it worked in this case.

Mediavine
In humans, a black walnut tincture is most commonly used for that same purpose. Besides itís used as an anti-parasitic agent, a black walnut tincture is also anti-fungal and anti-bacterial due to the high levels of tannins extracted from the black walnut hulls.

If you donít happen to have black walnut trees nearby, or theyíre not currently in season, black walnut tincture is available from Starwest Botanicals. They also sell black walnut hull capsules for an easy pill form, or dried black walnut hull powder for use in topical antifungal remedies (such as salves and creams).

BLACK WALNUTS AND IODINE
Not only is black walnut tincture a potent medicine, itís also one of the few land-based sources of iodine. While you can forage for salt deposits inland or extract salt from plant material when youíre far from ocean salt sources, most inland sources of salt lack iodine. Black walnuts, specifically black walnut husks, are a great source of iodine in a pinch.

Mediavine
Iíve found spotty references that suggest that black walnut hull extracts were applied to those exposed to radiation after the Chernobyl disaster. Supposedly if you apply the black walnut tincture to the skin, the iodine can be absorbed directly. Iím still looking for a good, reputable source to back up this information.

Other sources say that it contains enough iodine to be used as a topical anesthetic for wounds. Given that black walnut tincture also contains tannins which are antibacterial, and this makes sense even if iodine levels are in fact relatively low. Add in the fact that itís in a suspension of high proof alcohol, and youíve got a great recipe for wound sterilization.
