Something Good

Perla Baldemar

As a single mom with six kids and a farm to run, Perla Baldemar has a lot on her plate. At first she turned down a friend who wanted her to try essential oils, but thanks to the persistence of that friend she ended up buying the oils “just to get her out of my hair.” For a few months, nothing happened as the oils sat in her closet. Eventually, she started giving the oils away, simply wanting to clean house. The realization that essential oils could change her life hit when the people she gave the oils to came back and wanted more.

Her curiosity sparked, Perla began going to every class she could just to learn more. As she learned, she began to teach others. Perla admits that building her business was slow because her first priority was to be a good mom. As her business grew across the states and into mexico and Poland, she knew she needed to travel more. she says, “I hated to leave my kids. If I was driving for four hours, I would take all of my kids. I remember doing classes in a hotel while they would be under the table watching a movie.” However, having teams internationally also meant that she had to spend more time away from her kids as she couldn’t take them with her. In spite of this, Perla affirms, “my kids have been my greatest support.”

Perla wanted to show her children that it doesn’t matter what challenges they face, they can succeed if they want to. “I knew that doTERRA was a good business opportunity when I realized it didn’t matter if I had a degree, if I was a woman, a busy mom, or even if I was Hispanic and didn’t speak perfect English, doTERRA is a good opportunity for anyone that wants to do it.” From the start, Perla believed in the product as something that worked and could help others. simply by sharing with friends who visited from Poland and attending open markets in mexico, doors opened up and today her business continues to grow.

Reflecting on her experience with doTERRA, Perla says, “some people are really prepared. This was something they were looking for and they grasp it. Others take so long to realize what they have, and I think I’m one of them. I’m still discovering every day how great doTERRA is and how many lives I’m affecting just by sharing something good in my life.”

Simple Sharing

Use the oils.

“Once you use it, you know it’s going to work. If it will work for you, it will work for someone else.”

Open your mouth.

“When there is an opportunity to share, just share, and then the information will start spreading.”

If you’re stumped on what to share, share Peppermint.

“Any blend that has Peppermint in it, people can’t get enough of. They try it, and they want more.”

Don’t worry about using a particular system.

“I know that there are systems that work and that’s great, but I’m not that organized. I use it and share it.”
