A censer, called a smokehouse or a brazier, which is a container in which coals are placed in order to place the oud or other types of incense on it. For decades, Saudis have used incense burners in their traditional gatherings in majlis (guest houses) to spread the scents that delight the guests, and these incense burners are made manually and with great precision thanks to a well-established industry that has been passed down for generations in the Hail region. Wooden incense burners are made from tamarisk trees that grow in the desert of Hail. As soon as the tree branches dry up, craftsmen turn them into incense burners. Enjoy the delicate steps of the local manufacture of the incense burner, a product that every Saudi house has.
