Honeycomb

A honeycomb is a mass of hexagonal wax cells built by honeybees in their nests to contain their larvae and stores of honey. Beekeepers remove the entire honeycomb to harvest honey. The honey can then be removed from the comb, but is sometimes sold and used with the comb intact, especially if the honey is being spread on bread rather than used in cooking or to sweeten tea. Some believe that this is benefits one's physical and mental health.
