The honey bee, Apis Mellifera, secretes beeswax to build the walls of the honeycomb. Secreted wax is a transparent colorless liquid, which turns into a semi- solid substance on contact with the atmosphere. Beeswax is purified from its raw state by freeing it of solid impurities by meeting and centrifugation.
