Black Walnut Hull
History: Native American Indians enjoyed the pleasures and health benefits of the Black Walnut well before European explorers arrived. The upper Great Lakes region provides archeological evidence of walnut consumption dating back to 2000 BC. Black Walnut was used by several Native Americans, including the Cherokee, Delaware, Iroquois, and Meskwaki, in teas as a cathartic, emetic, or disease remedy agent. It was also chewed or applied for toothaches, snake bites, and headaches. The Comanche pulverized the leaves of black walnut for treatment of ringworm.
