    1. Take very small twigs, preferably new growth, and break into tiny pieces. Place the
    pieces in water to boil for 30 minutes or so. Drink for a cure for mild diarrhea.

    2. Chew the inner bark from the trunk of the tree for a tootheache cure.

    3. Tannic acid which can be easily gotten from acorns. Simply shell them then boil the
    acorn meat to get the acid into a tea like solution. Drink it. It is good for anti-viral
    anti-bacterial purposes.



    I have successfully stopped diarrhea by drinking a tea made from the twigs of an oak tree. Pieces of oak bark have been chewed to stop a toothache. The quercin in the bark is said to strengthen capillaries, and tannic acid is anti-viral and anti-bacterial.
    Thanks for the info two uses I never knew of. I've used (made) acorn flower and coffee. Used the ash ( helped grandparents as a kid) to make soap. Even heard you can boil the twigs ( pencil size cut into 1"-2" pieces to make a salt substitute. However I've never experimented with it.
