The censer, or incense burner, represents the element of Air.

It can be a big, swinging metal contraption like those used in churches or it can be as simple as a small wooden one.

You can use both the stick holders and the metal ones for powdered incense.

If you can't find a suitable censer, a bowl filled with sand, salt or kitty litter works fine. The sand or salt absorbs the heat from the charcoal, or incense sticks or cones can be pushed into it.

I find that incense greatly increases my concentration and is especially useful in meditations.
