Wound Wax’s new formula salve may look a little different, but it’s still packed to the brim with the same nourishing honey and beeswax that our customers have come to love and trust.

The original Wound Wax formula was made from honeycomb cappings, which are the exterior of the sealed honeycomb. This rich compound contains varying quantities of honey, beeswax, propolis and pollen, combined into a smooth paste.

The new Wound Wax formula is produced using precise quantities of beeswax and honey, which guarantees a more consistent, pharmaceutical grade product.

Wound Wax is a honey and beeswax-based salve, suitable for topical application in horses and other animals.

Made in Western Australia using honey and beeswax sourced from local apiaries, Wound Wax is a proudly Western Australian owned brand.

Wound Wax was created by equine veterinarian Dr Thomas Hamilton, who wanted to offer horse and dog owners an alternative to synthetic and corticosteroid creams for the treatment of superficial wounds and grazes.

While these products are highly effective and certainly have their place, Tom saw them being over-used in the equine community to treat simple, superficial wounds.

He set about creating a gentler, chemical-free wound dressing using the natural healing properties of honey and the soothing qualities of beeswax but without all the mess.

Working horses in particular are susceptible to cuts, grazes and minor wounds that don’t require veterinary attention but do benefit from correct management to promote healing and reduce scarring.

Unlike many prescription-only products, Wound Wax contains no ingredients that would be prohibited in a swab test, making it safe to use at any time.


HONEY: Adheres to the skin to form a wound dressing that reduces or prevents contamination, while allowing the body’s own inflammatory exudates to remain in contact with the wound.

BEES WAX: Forms a non-greasy protective barrier that keeps water and dirt out without drying the wound.

COCONUT OIL: Provides nourishment and moisture to support natural healing.


Remove crust and debris from the affected area.

Dry wound bed prior to applying  Wound Wax.

If irritation occurs cease using the product and seek veterinary advice.


How do I store Wound Wax?  The best place to keep it is in a cool, dry place below 30 degrees centigrade.

When I apply Wound Wax, it isn’t sticking to the wound. What am I doing wrong? Wound Wax is hydrophobic, meaning it is designed to repel water. This means the wound you are trying to apply the salve to needs to be quite dry before you apply Wound Wax to it.

How often should I re-apply Wound Wax? Each wound is different, but as a general rule we suggest you keep the wound clean and re-apply Wound Wax daily.

Is Wound Wax just for wounds?  No, not at all. As a nourishing barrier salve, it’s also great for dry irritated skin, superficial grazes, burns, fly bites and much more.

Can also be used on dogs.  Avoid using this product on cats.
