Cheese wax is made for coating cheeses to prevent unwanted mold growth and keep moisture in while aging cheese.

This 1 lb brick will wax approximately 12-20 cheeses when using the brushed on technique. If using the dipping method, you will need at least a 5 pound block.


It is best to melt wax in a double boiler so that it is not subject to direct flame. Never leave melting wax unattended because wax can explode at high temperatures. Heat wax to 210ºF. Wax can be brushed onto a dried and chilled cheese with a natural bristle brush (anything synthetic will melt), or you can very carefully dip your cheese into the wax pot one side at a time (it can get very slippery). Two thin coats are preferable to one thick coat. Be sure to fill up any air spaces as mold needs air to grow. When you are ready to eat your cheese, the wax is simply peeled off and can be strained through a cheese or butter muslin cloth to be reused over and over again.

Great product, great company
I ordered this cheese wax because I had to seal 3 large mushroom logs. The wax arrived fast and was exactly what I needed. I ordered 2 pounds and I noticed that the 2 packages were different sizes and one seemed heavier than the other. Curious, I weighed them both and indeed one was heavier than the other and both weighed well over one pound. So both packages were very generously portioned. Thank you Roots & Harvest. I will definitely order from you again!
