Every part of a beehive has been made by the bees! This includes the miracle of beeswax which is the comb created as a house for the bees to produce a queen and then the ‘larvae’ or new bee cell that becomes the ‘brood’, or group of baby bees.
The wax is secreted from the glands of some honeybees so they can build the comb and accommodate a growing bee colony. It allows for the storage of honey, larvae cells and other products, like royal jelly.
Beeswax is a useful in a variety of applications, from health and beauty products to candles and home items. Indonesian beeswax like other bee products, is a raw natural product and high value.
