Substance secreted by bees which they make hives out of. Beeswax is often used to make candles by crafty people. It smells nice on account of all the honey it's been near and has a neat hexagonal pattern on it because of the way bee's minds work.

Also slang for business.

Bees"wax` (?), n.

The wax secreted by bees, and of which their cells are constructed.
