If you want to bring the scents of fall into your home but you're nervous about using anything with harsh chemicals or leaving lit candles around you house, we've got the perfect solutions for you. From creating simmer pots to natural air fresheners, you need to try these natural and amazing smelling ways to bring those fall scents to your entire house.

Love the smell of pumpkin pie? You can have that delicious smell fill your home without baking. In your wax burner, add 3 tablespoons of coconut oil, 3 teaspoons of pumpkin pie spice, and a 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon.

Let the scent of apple pie fill your house and humidify the dry fall air. Add a sliced apple, sliced orange, 10 cloves, and 3 cinnamon sticks to a large saucepan or crock pot with water and bring to a low simmer. Throughout the day, top off with more water as needed.

Make your own room spray without harsh chemicals but still leave your house or car smell amazing with this mixture. To a spray bottle, add 3 tablespoons vodka or ethyl alcohol, 10 drops each of cedar wood oil, rosemary oil, orange oil, and cinnamon or clove oil. Fill the bottle with water and when spraying be sure to not spray on your skin or in your eyes.

Create a pumpkin spice latte smell throughout your entire home by putting small pumpkin spice votives in a container of dark roast, whole coffee beans. Even when the candles aren't lit, your house will smell like a delicious coffee shop.

Sticking whole cloves into an orange or apple creates a natural spicy scent that lasts for days and makes a beautiful, fresh centerpiece.

To give your home a spicy and woodsy scent, fill your slow cooker with a few fresh pine branches, a teaspoon of cinnamon, 1/2 a teaspoon of nutmeg and ground cloves, and water. You can add more water and let the scent cook all day in your slow cooker.
