I just bought this and I am absolutely in love with it. The ingredients listed as follows: petrolatum, microcrystal line wax, flavor, canola oil, aloe vera, leaf extract, vitamin E, vitamin E acetate, stevia rebaudiana, Green tea leaf extract, safflower seed oil, jasminum flower extract, bee balm extract
The bee balm extract is from the Monarda flower. Common names for the Monarda plant are bee balm, bergamot, and horsemint. So, to answer your question the ingredients are from plants/flowers, not bees. Hope this helps.

Bee balm: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Monarda A flower, not related at all to bee products.
Bee balm is a plant. It has nothing to do with bees, except that it attracts bees to itself. That's not to say that you can't be allergic to bee balm independently, as well as being allergic to bees (or beeswax), but bee balm does not have any bee product in it.

Bee Balm is actually a plant, and is not made by bees at all. :) Beeswax is made by bees. I *think* you should be okay. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bee_balm

Bee Balm is a name for an herb, no relation to bees (except that they might feed on the pollen). Beeswax is the actual wax from a beehive, which exists in several commercial forms, depending on how "clean" it is of bee pollen and the other components of a beehive. (Other waxes include soy wax, carnuba wax (another plant), and petroleum-based wax.)
Bee Balm is an herb/plant/flower. It is not the same as beeswax, so you should be able to use this. I would double-check to make sure there's no beeswax, though. Just to be sure.
