Could you use more magnesium?
Actually, most people could. It’s used for over 300 functions in our bodies, and we burn through it faster in times of stress. Even more importantly, it’s a co-factor for the absorption and use of other key nutrients, like vitamin D. Getting enough magnesium is critically important to health!
Some signs you might not get enough:
- Struggle to fall or stay asleep
- Occasional constipation
- Feeling anxious/wired
- Lack of appetite
- Muscle soreness/cramps
- Metabolic issues
Our Good Night Lotion is rich in natural magnesium chloride and blended with skin-nourishing oils. This means it’s not itchy like sprays, and doesn’t cause digestive upset like pills. It’s also very easy to use — simply rub it into belly or legs approximately 15 minutes before sleep. There are approximately 100 mg of magnesium per teaspoon of lotion, so use the amount that meets your needs!
Our lotion is safe for all ages. Choose original (with lavender essential oil for added benefits) or sensitive (without essential oils/unscented for those who are allergic to lavender or prefer unscented products).

Q: Can I use more than a pea-sized amount?
A: Yes! Every person’s needs differ, so you can use more or less than the suggested amount. If you still struggle to sleep or experience a restless feeling, use more.
Q: What are these little white balls in it? How do I get rid of them?
A: These are stearic acid, a naturally-occurring fatty acid in shea and mango butters. When the lotion melts in transit or in a bathroom and cools slowly, the stearic acid separates from the other oils and hardens as these little balls. Your lotion is still fine! If you don’t like the texture, you can remelt it, stir, and put it in the freezer to cool quickly.
Q: How do I use this for occasional constipation?
A: Rub a small amount (start with pea-sized but use more if needed) on your lower abdomen. For a child, do the “L” massage – up the left side, across, and down the right side.
Q: Why magnesium chloride instead of another form?
A: Magnesium chloride is the best “general” form and well absorbed topically. Other forms are beneficial for different reasons, but if you’re overwhelmed by research, this is a great place to start.
Q: Can I experience any side effects from this?
A: Rarely, someone can have itchy skin or slight diarrhea, but this isn’t common. Use less in future applications.
Q: I’m pregnant. Can I rub this on my belly?
A: Absolutely! Many women need extra magnesium while pregnant because their bodies are doing so much. It can help you get a good night’s sleep.
Q: If I want to use this during the day for sore muscles or another need, will it make me fall asleep?
A: Almost certainly not. It helps muscles relax and allows your body to calm for sleep, but it doesn’t induce drowsiness. You can use it whenever needed.
Q: My kids are more wired after use rather than sleepy. What happened?!
A: On rare occasions, lavender has the opposite effect on people, causing them to get energy instead of calming down! We suggest trying the sensitive version instead.

We have been using this on our 2 year olds feet every night before bed and it has been amazing! She is sleeping so much better and it’s something she looks forward to every night. The scent and texture is great.

Literally, amazing. I have RLS and while breastfeeding it only gets worse. I was recommend this lotion by a friend and it’s magical!! After five to ten minutes of applying it to my legs, they were calm and I slept sooooo much better. We even put some on our toddler when she seems restless! HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend this for anyone with RLS!
I also bought the mama one for my friend who is pregnant and having trouble sleeping because of restlessness and cramping–she LOVES it and she is not easy to please!!! Lol

My 14 month old is a terrible sleeper. After reading all the reviews, I was hoping this would help us out. Unfortunetly it didn’t work great for us. I didn’t really notice a huge difference on my baby and maybe a little on my 8 year old. Don’t love the texture, but I love the smell.

Love this lotion! One of my favorite Earthley products. I use it on my toddler every night. The nights I forget, she does not sleep nearly as well.

I’ve been using this lotion for several days now and I have to say it works great. I’m sleeping so much better now, it’s wonderful!

My 2.5 yo is and has been a terrible sleeper. She usually takes forever to go to sleep and wakes up in the night to come to our bed. I haven’t noticed anything magical using either the sleep drops or the sleep lotion, though she does like to take the drops and put the lotion on at night. I wish it worked as well for her as the other reviewers mentioned. Not a magic bullet for everyone unfortunately. I don’t really like how th lotion feels and always wash my hands afterwards but it doesn’t bother me on my legs

I love love love this stuff. My put this lotion on my daughter, husband and my legs every night before bed. It smells amazing and I swear it works. We sleep very well now. It started after about 4 nights in a row of my 2 year old not sleeping for some reason which means that the entire house is up. Not good because my husband works hard everyday and when he doesn’t sleep he struggles. We started the dream cream and it has become a nighttime ritual. He is not a “crunchy” man but loves this stuff. I swear though he is becoming more “crunchy” everyday 🙂 Life is much better with sleep!

Absolutely amazing stuff. I use it on my 5, 3, and almost 6 month old. My husband and I tease that once this stuff is applied- it’s a sudden domino affect. First the youngest, then the middle, then the eldest. They sleep amazing. Must have for every parent!

This stuff works great on my toddler! It helps her settle down faster and sleep deeper. I put a few dabs on the soles of her feet and back. A little goes a long way!

So glad my daughter introduced this lotion to me. I had heard stories about menopause and sleeplessness and thought “that will never happen to me – I’ve never had a problem falling asleep or staying asleep” I was wrong! Once I started waking up due to hot flashes at night I was having trouble getting back to sleep and would be awake for an hour or two sometimes. I still wake up with hot flashes but since I have started using GNL I have no problem falling right back to sleep. Thanks for this amazing product and thanks to my daughter for sharing it with me!!!

I loved the good night lotion. I use on my daughter and it has been a soothing part of her bedtime routine. She is more easily able to fall asleep. It also helps me relax and go to sleep instead of having my mind racing like usual.

My 5 yr old got a round of shots yesterday and was just irritable last night and wouldn’t sleep. I put some GNL on the bottoms of both feet and wrists and she was sound asleep in 10 mins! Amazing product!!

Love this stuff. After applying this stuff my children are calm and asleep within 15-20 minutes. Pair this with sleepy time and you’re on your way to amazing peaceful sleeping.

I am 40 weeks pregnant and have hit that phase where sleep is near impossible (though my 21 month old is sleeping SO much better, thanks to this lotion and the Sleepy Time Herbal Extract)…last night I massaged some Good Night Lotion into my legs and feet and I fell asleep as soon as my head hit the pillow!! This hasn’t happened for me in forever! I love this stuff

Used it two nights in a row on me and my 5 month old and we are sleeping like rocks! I struggle with fatigue and insomnia so I’m thrilled that this works!

So far so good. My daughter is two months a suffers from neonatal lupus. Night times are hard usually, but tonight, after her bath, I rubbed a small amount on the soles of her feet and she has been asleep for a good solid hour. I also rubbed it on my husbands legs, since he suffers from restless legs, and so far he is feeling a slight reduction in tingling sensation that keeps him up at night. Smells lovely.

Not that this product even needs another great review BUT I just must! I literally don’t think I could live, well sleep, workout this stuff! The first night I used or on my toddler I checked to see if she died lol. She’s never slept so well! I’m pregnant and when I wake up in the middle of the night to potty I can barely open my eyes and when I’m done I fall right back to sleep! Between the two of us the 1 oz. jar lasted a whole month! Pea sized for baby and a dime size for me. Please do yourself a favor and just get this product! You will not regret!
