Cavity Healing Tea/Black Walnut Hull Tea

Black Walnut “The Household Dentist”- for cavities and tooth repair.

I’m so excited to share with this interesting tea that I have been using for a long time now. It helps my family and close ones who I have shared that recipe with from toothaches and abscesses. Talking from my experience it truly helps as long as you stay faithful and drink it as often as you can through out the day.

My 5-year-old son had half of his face swollen from the tooth that got treated the day before. Since it happened on a Saturday night I had to come to the method of giving him a cavity healing tea to drink. On top of that I gave Sanguinarian/Mouth Wash to rinse his mouth with for every hour. He was drinking for about 4-6 cups of this tea for 2 days. I took him to the dentist on the third day on Tuesday. They took an x-ray of the tooth and were surprised how healthy it looked! His swelling went away too. Since Christmas was coming in 4 days doctor prescribed me Amoxicillin (antibiotic) just in case his swelling came back. He is now a happy lil’ guy who avoided taking antibiotics! Credit goes to Rachel Weaver M.H. who shared this recipe with me through one of her books!

Good Qualities Of Black Walnut Hulls:

The cumin and/or juglone is the active ingredient of black walnut hulls. Iodine is present in all usable parts of the black walnut, but the highest concentration is in the outer hulls of the nuts. Black walnut is a significant source of organic iodine, patassium, magnesiaum, manganese, sulfur, copper, and silica. Black walnut tones and helps heal inflamed tissues. This interesting herb strengthens and builds tooth enamel. It contains organic, assimilable fluoride. It is a muscle and nerve food, and a food for the hair, nails, skin and nerves. Its a good idea to add black walnut to the tooth powder!


Antibacterial, rebuilds enamel, takes away toothache, kills parasites, cures impetigo, rich source of iodine, remineralizes/heals cavities.

I buy my powdered herbs and reusable tea bags from (online store) if I can not find it at the local herbs stores.


*Click on each of the ingredients below to open a link and to see where I buy it.


You can also go by parts that way you can make how much you want to, I like to have more so I can make it and forget about making it for awhile.

By Parts:

  • 1 part marshmallow root powder
  • 1 part comfrey root powder
  • 1/3 part black walnut powder
  • 1/4 part anise seed ground or powdered


How To:

Mix all ingredients and keep it in a glass jar to keep it fresh longer.


I use reusable tea bags. Put one teaspoon in a bag and brew it in a cup of boiling water.


Adults – drink at least 3 cups daily.

I prefer drinking this tea hot. You may squeeze some lemon juice for a taste if you wish.


This tea works faster on kids since their bodies are smaller. I give my kids, including my one year old, this tea to drink once in a while as preventative maintenance. Add some sugar to sweeten it (optional). Make sure the tea is not hot when giving it to little ones.😄


Other Benefits:

More about black walnut hulls benefits that I can not be silent about: As a rich source of organic iodine, black walnut is a nourishment for the thyroid, especially where sea vegetables are hard to come by. It is also effective in enhancing the elimination of various microbes and parasites from the bowel.

For How Long: 

This herbal tea is not recommended for a long term use. Drink it for 2-4 weeks than make sure to take a break of it. Allow at least two weeks of a break in between. Then it’s okay to repeat. It’s a good idea to rotate herbal teas unless taken for a certain reason like detox tea. Detox tea would be an exception of taking it daily for up to 4-6 weeks and than take a 2 weeks of a break from it.

    1. From my experience it is safe. This tea is rich in iodine. We need iodine to make thyroid hormones that controls body’s metabolism and helps to properly develop bones and brain during pregnancy and infancy. Being iodine deficient also makes us feel weak. Your baby would only benefit from it! To be on the safe side, drink a cup of this tea and wait for about 24 hours to see if your baby will have any reaction to it. If not, it’s a go then! I drank it when I was breastfeeding and it went well for us! Good luck 🙂


  1. Can you please specify latin word for black walnut that is in the tea? Because in our country there is “walnut” and “black walnut”. One is edible, the black one isn’t (but is used as a medicine).

    1. I still don’t understand. Do you mean by “black walnut ” the hulls from the walnut we eat, that become black and are very bitter to taste? They are high in iodine and beneficial to many things. But it is not Juglans Nigra. The wallnut we eat is called Juglans Regia. And its hulls are healthy in tinctures and teas, it do turn black over time they ripe.
      The Juglans Nigra is different than the walnut we eat (J.Regia), because it has smaller and harder walnut, very hard to crush, with very small seed that is not edible. The husk of the Black Walnut and the joung walnuts are used to make tinctures with antiparasitic effect.
      That is why I wonder which walnut should I buy, because in our region there is no black walnut tea common as such.

    2. In reply to Lonci & Konci.
      Yes, you are right. I looked into that and researched on both of the “black walnuts”. What you are saying is very interesting. I’ve found some information and figured that other people also use Juglans Nigra to remineralize teeth. For example here is one of the links in this link they also use Juglans Nigra. From my experience my friends and family and I did not hear of any problems after drinking tea with Juglans Nigra, only benefits. If you still don’t feel right drinking tea with Juglans Nigra you are more than welcome to try and grind Juglans Regia into powder and use it.❤️❤️❤️

    3. The latin word for black walnut is “juglans nigra”. “Walnuts” are the nuts we eat, and “black walnuts” made from the walnut peels/hulls. Walnut peels/hulls is green at first and then becomes black once nuts gets ripened. You are right, you can not really take it and eat it just like that, because it’s bitter. But because it contains so much benefits for out teeth and overall body I love, love using it in the tea mix!❤️

    1. Hello Valerie. Anise seed herb does have antiseptic and pain relieving properties. I never tried making this tea without it. But if you decide to make this tea without Anise Seed, I would be interested to know how it went for you! Best of luck❤❤❤
