Good Night Lotion – For Healthy Sleep and Magnesium

2003 customer reviews
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.

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.

    Goodnight Lotion has been a life saver! My daughter no longer takes 2 hours to fall asleep at night, nor does she wake up in the middle of the night. Thank you!!

  2. Amsquared (verified owner)

    I love the GNL and have taken to using it every night. I also love that this is s lotion that does the same work as a supplement capsule. I am all about limiting how many capsules I need to take before bed and this hits the spot. It’s smooth and creamy, has a smell a little like soap, but in a good way. It definitely helps me go to sleep and stay asleep. Definitely a good addition to any good sleep routine.

  3. Deb S (verified owner)

    I used this on my belly every day of my pregnancy from about the 3rd month on, and I noticed specifically that I did not struggle with leg cramps in the middle of the night as I had in my previous pregnancies. I wish I had started using it sooner to help with morning sickness because I’ve read magnesium can help with that. I like the texture and it goes on smoothly without leaving a lot of residue on my hands,

  4. Jennifer Johnson (verified owner)

    I absolutely love this stuff. If I am up too late I get restless leg and this stuff nips it in the bud with no drugs! I have no more leg cramps in the middle of the night and I fall asleep and stay asleep. I love this and is an alternative to pills to help me sleep.

  5. Morgan Ruiz (verified owner)

    I bought this to try for my 3 year old who is not only super hard to get to sleep (nightly it’s 2 Hours plus) but also wakes 2 times a night and often can’t go back to sleep . I will say we did this plus the night time tincture so I’m not sure how much credit to give each product as we use them together but I have noticed a huge difference. My son now falls asleep within 30 minutes and stays asleep all night long. It smells amazing and he loves having this as part of his nighttime routine. Thanks for an amazing product.

  6. Erin Haberle (verified owner)

    My kids sleep SO much better when I use this on them at night! We love it! Highly recommended 🙂

  7. Brittany S. (verified owner)

    I need to be more consistent on using this every night. I notice when I don’t use it, I wake up multiple times at night and start my day tired. But when I use, my sleep is awesome.

  8. Jessica Pane (verified owner)

    I’m in love with the scent! I bought this cream for my toddler to speed up relaxing for bedtime, and also for the added magnesium as he is often constipated. Its super smoother to woolly and he loves the little massage he gets!

  9. Megan (verified owner)

    I have noticed a difference in how well I sleep! I get restful sleep when I use it!

  10. Tanielle (verified owner)

    I bought it to help my rambunctious toddler go to sleep easier. It didn’t help her much, but the first night I used it, I felt so relaxed and fell asleep quickly.

  11. Virna Silveiro (verified owner)

    This lotion has been a lifesaver during the last trimester of my pregnancy. I started getting awful leg cramps and restless legs at night during the third trimester. A nice shower and massage with this lotion and all discomfort is gone! It even worked on my husband’s sore muscles after a tough workout.

  12. Kayla Russell (verified owner)

    LOVE this ! Helps me & my baby sleep so much better !

  13. Amanda (verified owner)

    This stuff is amazing! I sleep like a rock when I use it! And my husband uses it now too instead of taking melatonin.

  14. Haley K

    This is the first mag cream I have tried and I love it! Ordered it 2 weeks PP to help with sleepless nights and have also been using it on husband. We have both noticed a better quality of sleep vs nights we forget to use it.

  15. Anne (verified owner)

    Love this lotion! It helps me fall asleep. So wonderful!

  16. grandmakayxox (verified owner)

    I was having problems with pain in my thumb, possibly from carpal tunnel. I’ve been using the good night lotion for the past few weeks and the pain has not came back! My thumb still gets tingly but no pain. I also put this on my stomach for the magnesium, but not on my feet as it seems to make my feet too hot whereas they are usually cold.

  17. Raelene (verified owner)

    Mama of 4 boys who would love to never have a bedtime haha. This stuff is amazing. We do an assembly line with our nightly routine and they already know to pull up their PJ bottoms for this rub. It smells so good, they get a little leg/foot massage, and then they sleep like a tired mom with no interruptions (because we all know sleeping like a baby isn’t the real deal haha). First product I’ve tried, and now I’m hooked on Earthly!

  18. Janae (verified owner)

    Love this stuff! It works really well on my 10 month old who loves fighting sleep, and my husband and I have even used it to get better sleep!

  19. Brenda (verified owner)

    Want to sleep? Rub on feet. Want someone else to sleep? Rub on his/her feet. Who knew? Earthley knew! Your products are amazing!

  20. Alyx Bermea (verified owner)

    Amazing texture and scent. We use this every night for our one year old son. I believe it makes a difference to help him sleep.
