Honeycomb is a natural product made by honey bees to store honey and pollen, or house their larvae. The honeycomb is made up of hexagonal cells made from beeswax, which generally contain raw honeyRaw honey is different from commercial honey because it's not pasteurized or filtered. The beeswax alone has very little nutritional value, with the exception of trace amounts of Vitamin A. However, since our system does not break down beeswax, it can help the body move food and waste through the gut. 
Bees make honeycomb by secreting wax out of a gland in their underbelly. Only the worker bees can secrete this wax, and they do so by eating a ton of honey. The worker bees chew these pieces of wax until they become soft and moldable, and then add the chewed wax to the honeycomb construction. 

Gentle Bee Apiaries is a Verona, Virginia-based company that sells local raw honey in glass jars, honey with comb, cut honey comb, honey bear, and creamed honey.
