The black walnut is a native tree of North America. The genus name, juglans, is derived from two Latin words; lupiter, meaning Jupiter, and glans, meaning acorn. The literal translation is therefore "Jupiter's nuts". According to a Chaldean clay tablet, walnut groves were known to be in the hanging gardens of Babylon. Pliny the Elder (ca.23-79 C.E.) reported cultivation in Italy from trees that had been transported from countries farther east. In ancient Persia, only royalty were supposed to eat them, and they were even referred to as the "royal walnut". In America, there is archeological evidence that they were consumed and used by the Native Americans as far back as 2000 B.C.E. Black walnuts are smaller, harder, and more pungent than the English walnuts sold in grocery stores. The hulls without the meaty kernels inside are used in herbal medicine. Black walnut trees exude a sap that discourages growth of competing plants over their roots.

Black walnut Leaf can generally be used in washes, compresses and baths.

NOTE: Prolonged use is not advised due to the presence of significant quantities of juglone, a known mutagen in animals. We recommend that you consult with a qualified healthcare practitioner before using herbal products, particularly if you are pregnant, nursing, or on any medications.

In Magick, Black walnut is ruled by the Sun and Fire. Witches would often dance under walnut trees during their sacred rites. Black walnut leaf is generally a good herb for all types of spells for success or when you want to bring some male energy into your magick. Can be used in love spells to attract a partner and even in magick to improve psychic ability.
