Earthley Awards Earthley Awards


Did you know that magnesium performs over 300 essential functions in your body – including promoting healthy sleep, natural detox, healthy blood sugar levels, and gut health?  Many forms of magnesium supplements either cause cramping/stomach upset (oral options) or are itchy (sprays).  But not ours!

We’ve blended pure magnesium chloride with nourishing oils and butters that moisturize your skin while the magnesium absorbs quickly.  The result is healthy skin and a healthy body!

Formulated by an herbalist and mother of 6 and trusted by thousands of happy customers, Good Night Lotion is safe for the whole family.  Made with the cleanest, most recognizable ingredients, like apricot oil, mango butter, and plant-based candelilla wax, with absolutely no compromises.

Take your family’s health into your own hands and enjoy the benefits of magnesium immediately, in an easy-to-use lotion — 100 mg magnesium per teaspoon!  Choose original (with lavender essential oil), sensitive (no essential oil), or limited-edition Blue Bliss (lavender, sandalwood, and blue tansy essential oils).

Key Ingredients:

  • Magnesium Chloride Flakes – promotes sleep and detox
  • Apricot Oil – rich in vitamin E, anti-inflammatory, soothes skin
  • Mango Butter – anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, nourishes skin
  • Shea Butter – anti-inflammatory, rich in vitamin A
  • Lavender Essential Oil – calming, anti-anxiety
  • Candelilla Wax – nourishes skin, hydrates skin

ABSOLUTELY NO parabens, phthalates, fragrance, preservatives, allergens (corn, soy, gluten, dairy, nuts), or any junk!

*Tested for heavy metals by third-party labs to ensure compliance with strict safety standards.*

Did you know that approximately 80% of the population is deficient in magnesium?

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). Shelf life of 1 year.

These statements have not been evaluated by the FDA, and this product is not intended to diagnose, treat, or cure anything.


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.

    LOVE this lotion! Most magnesium lotions leave my skin feeling a bit greasy, and this one only did that very marginally. It’s really helped my pregnancy aches and pains, my husband loves it to soothe his sore calves and feet, and my kids love to use this before bed. I keep this one in our rotation consistently!

  2. Monica (verified owner)

    Love this stuff and won’t be without! I bought the larger size jar in January this year. Myself and my four children use it every single night and it’s now June and there’s still a bit left in the jar. I just bought a new one so we don’t have to go without it when we finish up this jar. It helps us all sleep and regulate, and it helped my infant with his constipation issues. Buy it!!

  3. Courtney Riggs (verified owner)

    I used this for my 4 week old daughter to help her sleep better & it works! She settles down easier at night & sleeps more soundly (aka longer)

    We also use the vitamin d cream on her!

  4. Terri Young

    I’ve never had before and someone else purchased as not in my budget but is full of white chunks? Normal? You just leave them on skin? I’m at a loss! Put on feet with socks to contains white chunks but no effect on leg/foot pain, etc.

  5. Brittany M

    I am blown away! This product is amazing. I use it for my daughter. She has always had leg cramps pretty regularly and trouble falling asleep. We would use melatonin several times a week. Since using this product we NEVER have to use melatonin (even if she takes late naps) and her leg cramps have went away as well. She falls asleep so quickly and sleeps so well! I am so thankful that I found this. It works wonders for us!!

    Wonderful product. Will continue to use.

    This stuff has helped improve my sleep! So it does get the job done that is promotes! However I docked a few stars for the gritty and greasy texture. It’s hard to get past. I’m hoping to find another product similar with out the grit and grease. Going to try the “sensitive” version next to see if the texture is better.

    LOVE LOVE LOVE!!! My sleep has never been terrible but I’ve noticed how much more rested I feel in the morning after using this. It’s also helped my husband who has a really hard time getting to sleep.

  10. Stacey

    I started using this on my 3 year old son’s belly every night after I read something about magnesium helping night terrors. He’s had zero night terrors since starting this! I highly recommend this for young kids!

  11. gen.luci.burns (verified owner)

    I am literally going to purchase this for everyone I know, haha! I LOVE this lotion! My husband, who is pretty skeptical of all-natural products, LOVES this lotion as well! (That’s a HUGE plus for me!) He asks me to massage it onto his back and/or belly almost every night. It has improved our sleep, provided relief for our muscles from work or running after two small kids all day, and we wake up refreshed and rested. One of the best things we never knew we needed. Going to start using it on the kids as well! Thank you Earthley!

  12. Chasity Strawder (verified owner)

    I have ordered this lotion TWICE. The first order of lotion was very creamy in texture. The second order of lotion was very gritty and greasy in texture. Please bring back the creamy consistency.

  13. Cleo (verified owner)

    Helps me relax and fall asleep. Thank you so much for these great products.

  14. Angelina (verified owner)

    I’m sure the magnesium lotion does it’s job, but I docked it two stars because first, I dislike the wax base, it doesn’t readily absorb into the skin and I end up greasy. Second, I got the un-scented version, and it has a strong waxy smell. My husband jokingly calls it the “anti-husband lotion” because he dislikes the smell and won’t touch my greasy body after I use it. Would not recommend or buy again. I’d try another topical magnesium lotion/oil/spray, without the wax.

    Helps me fall asleep so fast! Sometimes I’ll be up and won’t know why I can’t sleep, but then I remember I didn’t use my lotion and I’ll fall right asleep after I put it on!

  16. Olivia (verified owner)

    We’ve really enjoyed this lotion I use a bit each night and it’s lasted so long. I’ve used it on my son too for leg cramps. My container has been open about a year now and the past two times I used it on my sons legs it’s burned his legs. It’s not burning me though. I wonder if since it’s been open a while if it’s starting to degrade or something. It’s very strange. It still works fine on me. I’m curious of the shelf life and life after it’s been opened.

  17. Jennifer (verified owner)

    This lotion works! I feel I get a better night sleep and also helps my son with his growing pains. The whole family uses it!

  18. Hannah (verified owner)

    I didn’t believe this would help me sleep. I have never had a problem falling asleep initially, but if I ever woke up it would take an hour or more to fall back asleep. I started putting this on my feet and put some socks on over it for a while before bed. I now fall asleep almost right away and I don’t wake up as much throughout the night! I didn’t use it for a few nights and definitely regretted it.

  19. Maria (verified owner)

    I used this for over a year. I like the pure ingredients, which is why I bought it. It is a decent product and does help sleep and relaxation, but it is greasy and takes awhile to penetrate the skin. Because of that, my pajamas began to smell rancid , and I did not connect that this was the cause of the smell. I finally figured it out as the smell got really bad and was crossing into my day clothes if I placed them together with my PJs. I tried everything to get the smell out, unsuccessfully. Finally, I read somewhere about hydrogen peroxide used in the laundry to deodorize and brighten clothes, and that started the pathway to eliminating the smell. I had no choice but to switch to another product, as the smell would subtly be present, even with peroxide, if the lotion is used. After about 2 months of not using this, my clothes, washed in non toxic soda and peroxide, are nearly smell free. I have 2 brand new large tubs that I cannot use, now, and I am disappointed 🙁

  20. Lauren (verified owner)

    Unfortunately this literally has no effects on my infant….the reason I bought it haha but it does work great on me! Both for sleepiness and AMAZING to stop my restless leg syndrome I sometimes get. My husband also said it helps him sleep.

    Maybe one day it’ll work for my baby! Haha
