Eco-friendly reusable wraps for food. Cotton cloth is coated with a pre-mixed blend of beeswax, pine resin, and jojoba/coconut oils
There are many DIY tutorials on line and even one here on CO+K. My preferred tutorial is from Mountain Rose Herbs.

I used meltable bars that contain all the necessary ingredients, pre-combined in the right proportions. The two sellers I have used are:
• Jenny Joy's Handmade Soap (who also include some wonderful and very effective hand salve to help keep the wax off your fingers) https://www.jennyjoyssoap.com/
• Kentucky Home--Our Essential Living https://ouressentialliving.com/product/diy-beeswax-food-wraps-pre-mixed-bar-beeswrap-diy-recipe.

  • Step 1

    Read the Mountain Rose Herbs tutorial
    to understand all the finer points, how to care for your wraps, and more.

  • Step 2

    Wash and iron fabric, and cut to desired sizes.

  • Step 3

    Preheat oven to 300° F.

  • Step 4

    Melt wax blend in a double boiler.

  • Step 5

    Lay a piece of fabric on parchment-covered baking tray.

  • Step 6

    Paint wax onto fabric.

  • Step 7

    Place tray in oven for a few minutes, until wax is melted in. Remove and check for bare spots.

  • Step 8

    If needed, brush on more wax and return to oven.

  • Step 9

    Repeat step 8 as needed.

  • Step 10

    Place fabric on hanger/line to cool and dry for a few minutes.

  • Step 11

    Repeat steps 5-10 for each piece of fabric.

  • Step 12

    After a year or so of use, the wax tends to wear out. You can renew your wraps (or any store-bought ones you have) by repeating the process.
