I am a Holistic Life Coach and Registered Aromatherapist. My passion is seeing others succeed. God has given me a natural ability to steer people in new directions with transformational questions and intuition. I am able to help others dive deep and discover the true motivations behind their behaviors.
I am a graduate of the American College of Healthcare Sciences (ACHS) and through building my Aromatherapy business, I found myself steering my Clients toward wellness through a Holistic Coaching Methodology. This led me to the Health Coach Institute (HCI) where I became a Master of Transformational Coaching. I work with my clients to help them transform their thoughts and lives at the core of their beliefs and identity.
I am a wife, mother, and Memaw to 5 grands (so far). I am a USAF veteran, Boy Scout Leader veteran, Former Bass drummer in Silver Thistle Pipes and Drums, and so much more. I homeschooled my children and went back to school later in life to become an Aromatherapist and then Life coach. I have overcome many life challenges and am blessed to be able to share the knowledge and wisdom gained to help others achieve balance and victory.
I currently live on the beautiful tropical island of Guam. I am the host of Aromatic Chat; the Podcast that introduces you to Registered, Clinical, and Certified Aromatherapists around the world. Find Aromatic Chat on Google, Apple, Stitcher, and Spotify.
I am the Central Region Representative for this amazing organization.

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 (https://www.theblossombar.com) 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 (https://www.blossomcreativeonline.com) 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!

Hello, my interest in botanicals started in the 60's...as you see way before becoming mainstream.
Gardening and supporting health seemed to come naturally. I was first introduced to Aromatherapy and the amazing world of essential oils in the early 80's mostly through reading and experimenting with my own extracts. My first official certification as an Aromatherapists via Canada and Lynn Bosman in 1990.
Studying, and walking the fine line between western science and natural prevention worlds at the time collided more often than not. I was able to balance both through educating my peers. In the late 90's I was actually asked to apply a gentle blend on a patient not responding to western medicine i.e. atrial fib..as a trained Holistic Nurse at the time, therapeutic touch in combo with a Lavender/ rosemary blend 1%.
His rapid heart rate decreased.. and his anxiety relieved.
I continued to study in collaboration with both worlds combining education and prevention.
