Growing up in the swamp, I learned from the Woman. She helped me to understand the benefits of different herbal teas.
Info about Allie: Mother did not want me to engage in wrestling alligators. That was the future Uncle Bob wanted for me. Al, my so-called father, agreed with Mother about taking me to get training from the Woman, rather than becoming alligator bait.
The fruit, leaves, and bark of this tree offer many benefits. Taken internally, black walnut helps relieve constipation, and is also useful against fungal and parasitic infections.

*Fights against fungal infection.
*Antiseptic properties help fight bacterial infection.
*Helps promote bowel regularity.
How to make a tea:
Place three to five leaves from a black walnut tree in a small pan of water. Bring the water to a boil. Boil the leaves for 5 minutes. Pour the tea through a strainer into a mug, reserving the leaves. One can drink the tea.
Take the leaves out of the strainer while they are still warm. Apply them directly to one’s skin for 10 to 15 minutes to soothe redness and irritation.
Heat a small pan of water. Add two or three pieces of black walnut bark when the water comes to a boil. Boil the bark in water for 5 minutes. Strain the bark from the tea, catching the liquid in a mug. Drink the tea as a laxative.
