Beeswax is secreted from a special gland on the worker bee abdomen. The bees then use the wax to build familiar hexagon-shaped honey comb cells. These efficient cells are designed to hold the most amount of honey while requiring the least amount of wax. Once filled with honey, the cells are capped with beeswax.
As beekeepers, we strive to preserve the beeswax honeycomb by uncapping the cells and spinning out the honey, so that the bees can reuse the comb. The wax cappings are collected, melted and formed into large blocks at the time of honey harvest. We then re-melt and filter this wax through cheesecloth in small batches to make our candles.
