...walnuts in our case.
A great season for them this year and they end up in cakes with our apples rather than skincare - for once. I know some use the ground-up shells as a scrub but we consider that a bit harsh, so we use sugar, essential oils and Gwydir Grove EV-olive oil in our Restore Scrub instead. Much better to feed the skin than flog it.
The green hulls have anti-worming properties and the soft wood has centuries of use in fine European furniture. This tree also shades my plant nursery and the odd, undiscovered walnut has been known to bury itself in a pot plant to start a new tree. Gotta love nature, so adaptable.
