How to make bee wax of Japanese honeybees

to get more information about beekeeping of Japanese bees, please visit my website,

After pressing Combs to take honey, I get a lot of honey-pomace.
It contains bee-wax. 
Now, I derive bee-wax from honey-pomace.
First, boil water and honey-pomace in a large pan.
The melt point of bee-wax is about 65 degrees Celsius.
Because water is heavier than bee-wax, bee-wax floats.
A Metal mesh is used to let garbage go down.
Bee-wax is used for many purposes.
You can make candles, hand creams, lip balm, and so on.
Shut off the heat and wait for setting of bee-wax.
This peace is about 2 kg.
I melt it again, filter it, and mold it into several forms.
