How did you get to make beeswax fabric wraps?

I decided a couple of years ago that I needed to reduce my own plastic use. I saw beeswax wraps online as an alternative to clingfilm (9) and decided I could make my own. It wasn’t quite as simple as I thought to get them as good as I wanted them to be. So I did a lot of experimenting and eventually got the recipe right (it’s a top secret recipe now!!). I then started making them for friends and family and the idea grew and grew into the business I have today!
