Michigan Mama Product Faves (Holiday Edition 2021)
We hope you all had a wonderful and blessed Thanksgiving! It’s officially Christmas season. With that said, I have some fun products to share with you. Welcome to our Holiday Edition of Michigan Mama’s Product Faves. These are always listed in random order and never ordered according to the preference of greater or lesser value.
Zest Energy Teas
I received samples of teas ($60 value) in exchange for this product’s fave segment. Any opinions expressed here are honest and my own.
I received a variety of their teas from tea bags to their sparkling teas with bubbles inside. 😉
My oldest daughter is a dance major at a local Michigan University and loves the energy the sparking teas give her. They are a great alternative to energy drinks with caffeine that contains the jitters. No jitters here.
The flavors are all unique and you might need to acquire a taste for a few of them. They do have a kick with zesty flavor but again, they contain important health properties to keep you going! Whether you like your tea hot or cold, Zest Tea has got you covered!!
I would like to thank the folks over at Zest Tea for giving us the opportunity to try out their variety of teas. We highly recommend them as a healthier caffeine alternative.
Eco Lips Candy Cane Organic Lip Balm
I received samples of candy cane lip balm ($9.99 value) in exchange for this product fave segment. Any opinions expressed here are honest and my own.

The Allay Lamp
I received samples of the Allay Lamp ($149 value) in exchange for this product fave segment. Any opinions expressed here are honest and my own.
WHAT EVERY PARENT AND PARENT-TO-BE WANTS: QUALITY SLEEP AND FEWER HEADACHES!
With the Soothing Allay Lamp, Both Are Within Reach Without Relying on Medications
lamp! After trying numerous products and medications for migraines, it has been a lifesaver! I turn the lamp on and instantly feel the muscles relax in my head, face and neck. When I was pregnant, the lamp gave me a tool to calm migraines since I wasn’t able to take my migraine medications. It sounded too good to be true but it really does help! It’s also small enough that I pack it with me for weekend getaways and the charge lasts for months! This lamp has been a game changer.”—Carol B.“I love my Allay
“This lamp is AMAZING!! I’m a person with chronic migraines and I cannot believe just how beneficial this light is when I’m having an onset of a migraine, I just sit there in a dark room with my lamp and within minutes I can feel better. For years I have not been able to find anything that has helped me, but this light is truly magical.”—Bibiana D
“The Allay Lamp has really helped me be able to quickly fall asleep at night. As someone who suffers from episodes of insomnia, being able to fall asleep at night or remain asleep has been difficult. Turning on the Allay Lamp helps my body wind down late at night and it takes the pressure off my eyes with the calming shades of green. On top of that, The Allay Lamp helps me relax when I have moments of high stress. The green shades of light provide a relaxing sensation that helps calm me down and allows me to focus.”—Donald W.
It can also be used in conjunction with OTC medications for a two-pronged approach to pain relief. In fact, the Allay lamp is used in migraine centers around the country in conjunction with IV and other physician supervised/assisted interventions for severe migraine attacks.
More than 90% of people surveyed report the Allay Lamp was helpful with migraine pain.
85% of Allay customers reported that they slept better with the lamp and also documented that they fell asleep twice as fast and woke up half as often.
My oldest daughter, 18, now a freshman in college enjoys using this lamp to calm her head or just keep things nice and calm and not so bright while studying and doing homework. The Allay Lamp is a definite must-have if you are a migraine sufferer etc. I have never heard of a product such as this and I am so glad that it was presented to us!

I absolutely LOVE this planner and the concept behind it. It’s probably the best put-together planner I have come across. And I truly mean that. Someone as structured and organized as me, well this is perfect!
Because my daughter is now a freshman in college, she is a stickler for schedules and organization just like me! I decided to give her the planner to try for herself since she’s a full-time student and has a part-time job. She absolutely loves it!
I also love the tote bag it came in. So cute!
I would like to thank the folks over at HerSpace Co. for giving us the opportunity to try out their product. We love it and highly recommend it!

Shower steamers are an amazing and helpful product. I recently purchased the breath easy ones as a stocking stuffer. It comes in the cutest little Christmas tree tote bag as you can see below.

I haven’t had a chance to use mine yet so can’t wait!!
Here is a product I use every single day! The healing salve is amazing. My feet get so dry and cracked around this time of year and guess what? My feet are the softest they have ever been since using it. So good. I also have used it on minor cuts and burns.
Just by looking at the pic below, you can tell I use it a lot. The little jar is already worn.

Old Trapper Jalapeno Beef-N Cheese (Sticks)
I received samples of the beef and cheese sticks ($8 value) in exchange for this post. Any opinions expressed here are honest and my own.
Are you a fan of jerky and meat and cheese sticks? Old Trapper offers some amazing sticks you’ll want to try out for yourself.
Their double-threat snack is amped up with the spicy flavor of Jalapeno. Old Trapper paired delicious smoked beef stick seasoned with Jalapeno spices and a creamy slice of Pepper Jack Cheese to form snacking perfection. Eat them one at a time or all at once. You’re doing it right either way.
I actually tried eating mine together to fuse the flavors. So good!!
I would like to thank the folks over at Old Trapper for giving me the opportunity to try their products! Highly recommended!
