A Love Story
Who We Are
We (Ian + Bridgette) are the chief lovers, creators, & visionaries at OLH. Together, with every one of our amazingly beautiful, high-vibe supporters, we compose the collective entity known as One Love Holistics: The Palo Santo Company.
With our roots growing from the fertile cultural grounds of the San Francisco Bay Area, we are surrounded daily with the thriving creative energy of innovative & socially responsible businesses. This inspiration, along with a profound love for Palo Santo, are the driving forces for bringing our vision of a sustainable future for our beloved Palo Santo trees to fruition.
"It is our passion & purpose to create a platform with which we can share the love of Palo Santo with the world, having as much of a positive impact on people and planet as palo-ssible!"
With Love xoxo,
- Ian + Bridgette
A Socially Responsible Business
Simply stated, we put people & planet before profit. Positive social impact is the guiding principle for measuring our success as a small business. We strive to set the gold standard within our niche industry by facilitating conscious sourcing practices, regenerative forestation, ethical labor conditions, and a socially responsible business model.
The Palo Santo trade is a global industry, and for that reason, must be lead responsibly due to Palo Santo's ever-increasing demand as a natural wellness product worldwide. By focusing our energy into a unique niche product, we are able to maximize our positive social impact & consistently provide the best Palo Santo products available on the international market.
Sustainability is more than a buzz-word at OLH. As a heart-centered business, we are always working to develop environmentally friendly alternatives to shift the current industry paradigm. We do this by building a strong foundation of long-term & love-driven actions with every decision we make. These consciously curated efforts, coupled with our socially-aligned holistic business model, work to ensure a healthy & prosperous future for our cherished Palo Santo.
What are we doing differently?
• Actively supporting Palo Santo reforestation programs.
• Building an extensive global network of ethically conscious Palo Santo supply chains directly at the source.
• Crafting a uniquely upcycled & love-infused Palo Santo bracelet line to encourage the use of Palo Santo in a smoke-free fashion a.k.a. Palo your Heart™.
• Pioneering true sustainability through a fresh & innovative product line using artisan distilled essential oil from the fruit of Palo Santo.
• Connecting the people of the world through the love of aromatherapy: one incense, one bracelet, & one ethical harvest at a time!
Consciously Crafted + Made with Love
When it comes to conscious business, we resonate with the classic adage of "Don't talk about it, BE about it." To be a truly responsible & ethically intentioned business, you have to walk it & not just talk it! At OLH, we are walking, more like peacefully gliding really, into a bright and promising future for Palo Santo, one step & one stick at a time!
Consciously crafted to us means that while we're constantly adapting, improving, and growing as a company, every step taken is thoughtfully made to best achieve our goals. Every last detail is carefully considered when moving forward with our product lines, packaging materials, & OLH branding message in order to remain true to our roots & values as a mission-aligned holistic wellness company.
We're learning, loving, & appreciating every step of the way & know that our customers are too! <3
