Dori Bell 

Kansas - Email Dori

Hello, all! I'm Dori Bell, aromatherapist and Kansas state rep for AIA. I have been studying and practicing aromatherapy since 2000. I love to learn, drink tea, smell beautiful smells, and read. Currently I'm learning all I can about native plant gardening, and hope to turn my little plot of land into an oasis and sanctuary for native plants, birds, and insects. My husband and I live in the little town of Manhattan, Kansas ("the Little Apple") and have a 19 year old daughter who is the delight of our heart.

I run two businesses. Both businesses are built on the same foundation: my desire to facilitate people feeling great about their lives. 

Through my work as an aromatherapist at The Blossom Bar ( I offer custom essential oil blends that encourage well-being and connection on an individual or group level. I also incorporate my training in flower essences and herbal care into my aromatherapy practice. My focus is on education and sustainability, and I'm a proud business sponsor of Airmid Institute. 

With my digital marketing business Blossom Creative ( I specialize in helping wellness businesses and the people behind them express their missions in ways that attract their ideal clients and generate sales. My "smart strategies, executed well" focus helps clients expand and deepen their visibility through thoughtful, comprehensive content and SEO strategies. My signature offer is Alchemy, an all-in-one website design, copywriting, SEO, and branding package that gives clients a website built from the ground up to make them money.

I look forward to meeting each of you at meetings and events!
