Hemorrhoids are a common ailment. Because of this, the market is flooded with different options for treating the burning, itching and pain that comes with them. That’s why we’ve written this review of Forces of Nature Hemorrhoid Control: To make sure it makes the cut. It does have qualities that you should look for in a natural hemorrhoid solution: Soothing oils, all-organic ingredients and natural solutions for burning, itching and pain. But does its homeopathic formula suit your needs?
There are two types of ingredients: “Active” and “Inactive”.
- Witch Hazel
The active ingredients in a medication or treatment are usually the important ones. In this case, they are Witch Hazel and Horse-Chestnut. Witch Hazel is used because it can provide relief from sore or burning hemorrhoids while Horse-Chestnut, according to Forces of Nature, acts against the hemorrhoids, helping to clear them up. The inactive ingredients listed are all oils. For the peppermint oil, the main reason it’s used is because it acts as an anti-inflamatory. The Niaouli oil aids in skin health. Cypress oil relaxes muscles, and the lavender oil calms the system. Rose geranium oil acts as a natural astringent. Forces of Nature claims that the sesame oil is there to “provide deep, penetrating action”, but doesn’t specify what that means.
When using Forces of Nature Hemorrhoid Control, you will need to apply two to three drops of the oil to the affected area, two or three times per day until the problem is resolved. However, at no point are you to put this product inside of your rectum itself; this product is to be used externally only. Pregnant or nursing mothers should speak with a physician before use. Not suitable for children.

Forces of Nature Hemorrhoid Control Review – Conclusion
Our review of Forces of Nature Hemorrhoid Control leads to mixed results. While the ingredients used are described as effective for treating hemorrhoids, as well as being organic, there are faults. The price is high. In addition, while the customer reviews of this product on the company’s website were overwhelmingly positive (60 of 62 — 97% — positive and zero were negative) the ratio of positive to negative reviews was quite different on Amazon (62% positive, 30% negative). In our experience, a 30% negative rating is quite high and is of definite concern, as is the disparity between the rating ratios.
