How is One Love Holistics helping to conserve Palo Santo (Bursera graveolens) trees?


1) Certified Ethical Origin
We NEVER cut living trees to produce our Palo Santo (Bursera graveolens) products at One Love Holistics.


When done mindfully, the gathering of fallen Palo Santo (Bursera graveolens) wood is a sustainable practice. When a tree grows old and dies of natural causes, it eventually falls to the forest floor. The tree then resides there for a number of years, untouched, allowing the rich oils within to refine with time, creating the pleasant aromas we experience with this precious wood!

When working with OLH,

you can be assured that living trees are NEVER cut!

By following this strict guideline, our collection practices support the conservation of existing dry forestlands. The Palo Santo (Bursera graveolens) trade has helped to bring a much greater degree of awareness to these dry forestlands and their continued preservation efforts.

We support conservation + reforestation, just as you do when you align with ethically-driven companies like OLH. It is these initiatives that represent the guiding principles of all we stand for at “The Palo Santo Company.” These projects allow for the long-term sustainable management of the dry forest, as well as the ethical economic empowerment of the native communities who steward their native forestlands.

It is a full-circle, holistic system of conscious trade, and we are honored to be apart of it!


2) Independent Supply Chain Audits
We work directly at the source in South America, conducting independent third-party audits of all native communities within our supply chain to ensure ethical sourcing & humane labor practices.


We're really in the field & have been for the past five years. We are not merely an online reseller of Palo Santo products, we are a vertically-integrated business with teams directly on the ground in Ecuador & Peru. Working alongside hundreds of Ecuadorian & Peruvian families who act as the gatekeepers of the Palo Santo (Bursera graveolens) dry forest, we help to bring these precious natural products from our native production partners to the rest of the world.

Our network of native community partners is comprised of stakeholders from all across the spectrum. We work with native communities who share our vision for a holistically-integrated Palo Santo trade and whose actions are in alignment with this environmentally-mindful ethos.

Official certifications (both government & privately-issued) are only one aspect to a truly holistically-integrated Palo Santo (Bursera graveolens) supply chain.

While we work within the guidance of MAGAP (Ecuador) & SERFOR (Peru), our most significant value comes in our independently-conducted third-party supply chain audits, allowing for the greatest degree of transparency & accountability possible. We recognize the importance of both government and privately-issued environmental certifications in helping further sustainability efforts, and we equally understand the integral importance of presence at the source to ensure a truly healthy & holistically-integrated Palo Santo (Bursera graveolens) trade.


3) Regenerative Palo Santo Harvest Models
Conserving Ecuador & Peru's dry forests one harvest at a time.


Regenerative is a word we’re using a lot in the OL-HQ these days.

Regenerative harvest models represent the pinnacle of harmonious balance within mother nature.

When it comes to the niche world of Bursera graveolens, going above and beyond for our beloved Palo Santo is what we're all about. We plant new trees annually & we've been planting them since the beginning. Collectively, our company & production partners have planted over 50,000 Palo Santo (Bursera graveolens) seedlings, from both seed & cuttings over the past decade alone!  While the sowing of seeds is only a brief season of year, we spend the rest of our time working to protect living Palo Santo trees, by the tens of thousands, in order to help conserve the biodiversity of the dry forest & to prevent harm caused from illegal poachers & human-influenced environmental degradation. Our company offers real solutions to the issues that exist in the marketplace today & we actively play our role in ensuring the conservation of our earth's natural habitats for future generations through our mindful actions as a socially responsible, positive-impact business.

One-day-at-time, we are helping to conserve native dry forestlands through annually-regenerative harvest models utilizing the fruit of the Palo Santo tree!

Yes, we said it (and you read it)...The Fruit.

Meet the future of Palo Santo.

4) Supporting Academic Research
We collaborate with conservationists, botanists, and academic scholars to promote contemporary research surrounding our beloved Palo Santo (Bursera graveolens) trees.


Where modern science meets the ancient knowledge.

Our academic research network is comprised of conservationists & reputable environmental scholars alike. We take science seriously & allow our passion for this environmental knowledge to be a guiding principle in our day-to-day actions & responsibilities as a positive social impact business. We continuously collaborate & regularly consult with our academic advisors who hold B.S., M.S. & Ph.D degrees in Environmental Science from esteemed academic institutions around the world.

We believe an educated population is an empowered population.

We do not promote fear-based narratives, nor do we perpetuate inaccurate information as fact. We're simply here to share a specialized knowledge obtained from our first-hand experience working & researching in this niche field for the past five years, so that we may help to bring awareness to the nuances of our beloved Palo Santo (Bursera graveolens) trees for the global population.
