The Black Walnut Remedy That Cleans Your Intestines of Parasites

Whether you want this remedy to help get rid of intestinal parasites, or for any of the numerous other benefits we’ll discuss, it’s an easy recipe to prepare ahead of time, and it has a long shelf life if stored properly.

All of this will be discussed later in the article. First, let’s discuss what is this black walnut remedy good for.

What is a Black Walnut Tincture Good For?

Historically, black walnut tincture has been used for its anti-fungal, anti-viral, anti-bacterial, and anti-helminthic (parasite killing) properties. Other uses include:

  • Reduces excessive sweating
  • Lowers cholesterol and blood pressure
  • Digestive aid
  • Slows down heavy menstrual bleeding
  • Relieves heartburn, diarrhea, and flatulence
  • Balances blood sugar levels
  • Fights heart disease
  • Helps with skin conditions such as acne, boils, and warts

This information mostly comes from Nicole Apelian’s book, The Holistic Guide to Wellness: Herbal Protocols for Common Ailments.

She has created an entire Parasite Protocol filled with a lot of tips and tricks that help you flush away parasites and heal your gut.

This science-backed protocol includes specific instructions on what herbs to take and what foods to eat in the morning, noon, afternoon, evening, and before bed.

DIY Black Walnut Remedy

You will need:The Black Walnut Remedy That Cleans Your Intestines of Parasites-ingredients
  • 7 whole green walnuts
  • 80-proof vodka
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • quart canning jar with lid
  • a pair of gloves
  • a sharp knife
  • a dark-colored glass bottle with a dropper

Black walnuts should be the freshest you can find, and if you can get them when they are still very green, that’s the best option.

Here is a complete and easy guide to identifying and harvesting edible and medicinal plants, and how to spot poisonous lookalikes.


When you have gathered all your supplies, put your gloves on. If you do not, your hands will be stained for weeks. Also, be mindful of what else these hulls and shells come in contact with before, during, and after the process.

In my childhood, my grandmother made a wonderful black walnut cake. She would run over the walnuts with her car to open them. Yes, they’re a hard nut to crack. In this recipe, the hulls are used, not the meat or nuts inside the inner shell. The green hull can be opened with just a knife, so the nuts can be used for other purposes.

Anyway, making black walnut tincture is very easy:

  1. Fill a quart canning jar about ⅔ full with vodka.
  2. Cut the walnut hulls and place in the jar.
  3. Pour about 2 tablespoons of lemon juice in to help preserve the tincture.
  4. . Pour about ¼ cup of olive oil in to help create a barrier from oxidation over time.
  5. Make sure the top of the hulls are covered with the vodka, lemon juice, and olive oil mix.The Black Walnut Remedy That Cleans Your Intestines of Parasites- completely covered
  6. Cap the filled jar, without stirring the mix, then place in the refrigerator.The Black Walnut Remedy That Cleans Your Intestines of Parasites- put o a shelf
  7. The tincture is ready to use anywhere from as quickly as a couple of hours, to as long as 4-6 weeks of sitting. Obviously the longer it steeps, the more potent it will be for you. The other factor in its effectiveness and strength is the freshness of the back walnuts. The sooner you’ll pick them from a tree, the more potent the tincture.
  8. Once the tincture is ready to use, strain the mix to remove the hulls and excess debris. Pour the liquid into small dark-colored bottles that have droppers.

The shelf life depends on the freshness of the hulls used. It could last for years, but will be more effective in the earlier stages.

How to Use

In order to use it as an intestinal parasite cleanse, the dropper comes in handy. Take 20 drops of the tincture three times a day. To give you an idea of how long this should last, a 2 oz bottle should hold about 60 servings.

If you’re looking for a topical aid for skin conditions, use a cotton swab dipped in the tincture and dab on the area in question. Be careful though, as it will stain your skin for some time.

A dropperful of the tincture can also be used for athlete’s foot. Add it to a gallon of warm water in a small tub, and use it as a foot soak. This could also stain, but it’s far less concentrated than the dose listed above.

No matter what ailment you are seeking help for, hopefully this black walnut tincture will aid you in finding relief soon!

Massachusetts has black walnut trees but very rare.

Black walnuts grow profusely in NE Tenneesee on our farm. Most go to waste so need to find a market for them. They ripen and start falling around August. Contact me in early August and maybe we can make arrangements to get some to you. We travel between Tennessee and the Houston TX area. kk

Can you suggest how much to take & when in the female cycle to start taking for heavy periods?

Hi Mel,

Although this tincture may help with that too, its main purpose is parasite cleansing.
