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.

Supplement Facts:

100 mg of magnesium per 1 tsp of lotion.

It is safe to use more depending on your needs, and to apply at other times of day.  Apply to the affected area for sore muscles or occasional headache.


Shelf life: 1 year. Safe for all ages. Safe while pregnant or breastfeeding. Using too much may cause temporary diarrhea, but will not cause any long-term or serious issues. If you notice loose stools, use less.

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.

  1. Kathryn (verified owner)

    I have a two year old. We have been using good night lotion for a couple weeks now. Just because I was curious I didn’t use it one night and I noticed she tossed and turned a lot more or the night we didn’t use. She also falls asleep faster when we use it. Typically I apply it to her belly but sometimes we have had to rub on her feet.

    I have used this on myself and end up putting my phone away at night because I am starting to fall asleep! I like that is it hydrating too.

  2. Lyndye Steen (verified owner)

    My husband and I love this lotion! It helps with our sleep. It has also made a huge difference for my husband’s muscle cramps. When he feels one coming on, he applies the lotion and it helps to alleviate it.

  3. Jennifer Turner (verified owner)

    My 8yo and I use this at night when we need a little help falling asleep. Love getting some magnesium as a bonus. We apply to stomach or bottoms of feet, nice and thick, smells good and leaves skin moisturized.

  4. Jami (verified owner)

    We love using this for better sleep and leg cramps. It actually helps alleviate leg cramps. We also use of for after swimming in chlorine. It goes on smooth. We use the sensitive one so no smell to worry about!

  5. Marissa (verified owner)

    EVERYONE (except the dog) uses this lotion before bed. We tried melatonin (and melatonin-free) gummies to help my toddlers wind down before bed, but they didn’t work. This lotion does help them relax and it smells good too! I got a second container to keep in our room too.

  6. Kaylynn T (verified owner)

    Just buy the big tub of it, you’ll love this product. It’s so helpful for pregnancy leg cramps. We have most certainly entered the old age and we have to travel with this now too, in order to get a good night’s sleep. Works very well to stay sleeping to, may only wake once in the night!

  7. Zaira (verified owner)

    This was my best friend during pregnancy! Towards the end I get a lot of leg cramps. My first pregnancy was horrible until i found this product. With my second pregnancy I would use this every night and it helped so much. There are a few times I forgot to put it on and I would wake up in the middle of night with a leg cramp. I also use these on out stomach if we’re having a stomach ache or constipated. Within half and hour we feel better. My kids also loves it! It is part of their nightly Routine. I’ll rub a little on their legs and tummy to help them sleep better at night.

  8. Kendra Davis

    We love our “nighttime lotion” that we use every night for our kids. It’s a fun ritual and they always know it’s bedtime when we put it on their bellies. It was recommended by a friend and now our kids always sleep better when they have it.

  9. Izzy Sanchez (verified owner)

    Prior to using the GNL my son would wake up crying with leg pain. (Growing pains.) I now use this as a part of their nightly routine. I also noticed that when I put it on my toddler it also helps him go to the bathroom.
    Both for my toddler and my oldest. I like the way it rubs on, ish but sticky nor does it have a weird feeling to it.
    It’s greasy, but I love that a little goes a long way. I have now ordered another one. I ordered the 8oz.
    I will never go back, I am going to make sure I always have this on hand! I highly recommend this product!

  10. Makayla (verified owner)

    I love using this especially for the kids when they have too much energy at bedtime. It works great and it doesn’t sting like other magnesium lotions we have tried.

  11. Stephanie

    This was a lifesaver for when I was pregnant. It helped me sleep the entire night during my entire pregnancy. I also love that it’s not greasy and doesn’t leave behind a residue.

  12. Alicia Wipf (verified owner)

    This doesn’t always help with my restless legs, but we have seen a slight improvement in our youngest son’s sleep, on our middle son sees amazing relief from his growing pains.

  13. Amberlee (verified owner)

    We love this sleepy time lotion in our home. I have 4 kids, 8 and under and I use this on them every night to help with restful sleep and for the benefits of the Mg. I do think it has really helped them wind down at night.

  14. annaswerczek (verified owner)

    I love this product so much. I have used other magnesium lotions and this is my favorite. Especially with it being safe to also use on my one year old. It helps me with sore/restless legs and also helps my one year old sleep!

  15. Audrey Caeton (verified owner)

    I am absolutely in love with my this product. I get RLS often and using this takes it away within minutes for a very restful sleep. Highly recommend!!!

  16. Autumn (verified owner)

    My whole family uses and loves this lotion. It’s great to help my daughter’s dry skin while promoting healthy sleep. It helps when I experience muscle cramps and has even helped constipation by applying to the stomach. It smells amazing!

  17. Kelsey Ross (verified owner)

    This product is so helpful at getting me to sleep.
    When i was pregnant it was so helpful at calming my leg cramps at night and even helped calm the preterm contractions that I dealt with.

  18. Bella Burkholder (verified owner)

    I use this all throughout my pregnancy, and it was a lifesaver! I had horrible sciatic pain and restless legs, and every night I would apply this all over my hips and legs and virtually had no pain after using it. I recommend it to all my pregnant friends! My only complaint is that sometimes it’s very creamy and sometimes it’s a little grainy, but that’s just because it’s homemade and is always a little different. I don’t mind either texture, but I would prefer it to be a little more consistent and predictable. But besides that I still continue to buy it even though I am postpartum and love it!!

  19. Courtney Taylor Mims (verified owner)

    Will definitely purchase again. I do find it helpful and a peace of mind when I remember to apply. Usually use it on my belly before bed. And sometimes on my little one.
