Mineral oil is not a drying oil (it does not cure with exposure to O2, like BLO), so no…it will never dry. That said, I’m not sure what you solution is. My first thought would be to coat the inside with shellac, typically it sticks to everything, dries with no lingering odor, and should be plenty durable for the interior. Even so, I’m not sure it will adhere with mineral oil…you could test it first and go from there. I suspect you can also apply the coat of mineral oil/beeswax you want to use, I’m uncertain what the effect will be.
