Creams – Salves – Syrups

Speaker:  Rexella Bennett

President, Springfield Area Herb Society

October 15, 2013 @ 6 pm

Rexella is in her third year as President of the Springfield Area Herb Society.  She and her family have over 20 years experience in helping people overcome health challenges with the use of pharmaceutical grade plant based nutrition and specialized water.  She has been in the education field for over 20 years.  Currently, she is working on a new herbal business that she plans to launch in the near future.  Rexella is a life-long gardener and is in the design stage of  updating their edible landscape.  She is always up for a wild edible walk as she discovers plants (some call weeds) that God put here for us with more nutrition than what most of us eat in our daily diet.  Rexella loves to speak and is looking forward to sharing with you how she makes Herbal Applications of creams, salves and syrups.  She suggests you bring a pen and paper as you may want to take notes.

This is the month we elect our new leadership team for 2014.  Their positions will begin in January, 2014.
