Summer Saturday Supplement Review: Fura-Free Sweat & Salve

Wound ointment that won’t cause cancer or melt in the tackbox!

While nitrofurazone is cancer causing and can sometimes cause rashes on both people and animals, this ointment is a natural alternative.  Great for those of us who never seem to put on gloves for routine horse care.   Won’t melt into a runny mess if you happen to live where summer goes on.  And on.  And on.

Finish Line Fura-Free Sweat and  Salve

Claims

Protects and heals minor wounds, creating flexible scabs and prevents proud flesh.  (OK, I don’t consider small wounds as very proud-flesh-producing, so how does that compute?  Well, anyway, moving on.)  Can be used on all sorts of burns, scrapes and cracked heels.  Naturally antibacterial without harmful ingredients:  Polyglycol base and all natural essential oils – Tea Tree, Myrrh, Thyme, Lemon Balm, and Calendula.  Also used as a safe sweat.

Would I buy it again?

Yes!  While I cannot speak for the use of it as a sweat – I don’t sweat horse legs – this is a really nice wound ointment that somehow also manages to smell good and is terrific for the hands.  Small leg scabs did get more flexible and healed well when rubbed with a bit of this.  Most wounds seem to heal better on their own without lotions and potions, but in summer with flies around it’s nice to have some protection.  This fits the bill.  And it smells good!  Already said that.  Like it!
