Propolis allergy

by Sue
(Toronto Canada)

Hi, a recent patch test showed I had an allergy to propolis.

As I've been trying to learn about it, I see it can be good for you, comes in different forms, and has different names.

All very confusing.... should people with a propolis allergy avoid all honey and bees wax products?

I am trying to find a lip balm that contains no propolis but finding this challenging.

Any suggestions? Thanks :)

Angela's comments:

Those with Propolis allergies don't tend to have issues with honey as the propolis is filtered out during processing. Raw honey products may contain tiny amounts of propolis in it but this is usually so low that it isn't an issue.
