Incense Cones and Sticks Photo Shoot

One thing I know to be true is that on Etsy (and anywhere else online) you must have product photos that dazzle the eyes and make people want to add them to their favorites and treasuries. I already have some nice incense cone photos that I took over a year+ up in my shop but I recently got some incense STICKS to soak and sell so I needed photos of them. I’ve learned that when in the mood — shoot, shoot, shoot! Shoot I did… I am very happy with my results. Here are a few… but check out my Etsy shop – Virtualdistortion – to see them in action!

Do you believe in it? I sure do.

At night I love to smell crushed lavender buds. It instantly relaxes me. Perhaps I have sort of trained myself to clam down and sleep once I smell that scent. FOOD is a common favorite too.

Other than that I make and burn a lot of charcoal incense cones. I make small batches about once a month so they are very fresh and ready to ship! I have these scents in stock at this time: Blackberry Sage, Patchouli, Indian Sandalwood, Delicious, Tibetian Amber, Sandalwood.

6 Blackberry and Sage / 6 Indian Sandalwood – Incense Cones

12 Patchouli Incense Cones

The cones burn very well in/on my copper burners:
Abstract Handmade Copper Incense Cone Burner
Rose Leaf Handmade Copper Incense Cone Burner
and of course you can custom order one of these… It is a handmade copper ROSE incense cone burner. The inside lifts out and the cone is lit and set in side and then you replace the inside bud and watch the scented smoke billow out into your environment. It looks cool while in use or while it’s just sitting around.

I think I’ll go light a blackberry sage cone right now. (;
