2009 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.

    I’ve been using this for a little over a month. I’ve been massaging it into my stomach before I go to bed. It really seems to help me fall asleep easier. I’m sure the lavender scent helps with that as well. I have also been rubbing it into a sore (feels pulled) calf muscle off and on and it seems to help that too. The lotion is very smooth but doesn’t feel greasy and smells very nice.

  2. Christy Houston (verified owner)

    This product is seriously amazing. We use it for the whole family and we all sleep through the night (finally)!! The smell is almost non-existent and the texture is smooth and creamy as you would expect from a body butter. This really helps to relax and calm for a good night’s rest.

  3. Stephanie (verified owner)

    I Can’t go to bed without my Goodnight Lotion. It helps with leg cramps at night as well as restless legs.

    It also has the added bonus of helping my kids have bowel movements when they’re a little backed up.

  4. Calli Plott (verified owner)

    We absolutely LOVE this product in our house hold.
    We are a family of 5 and this has so many uses in our house. We use it for restless legs, tummy aches, headaches, and, growing pains. I have suffered from restless legs since the birth of my 3rd child and nothing seemed to help. Then I came across this company and found this cream and I no longer have to suffer through the night. Earthly is now all through our house and medicine cabinet!

  5. Holly Conley

    For over two years now, I’ve relied on the Sensitivity GNL, not just for myself, but also for my toddlers, and it has become a staple in our household for the previously many sleepless nights. During my pregnancy with my youngest, I battled excruciating Charlie horses and endured the challenges of prodromal labor. This miraculous lotion provided immediate relief, effectively warding off those painful muscle spasms when applied before bedtime, and calmed down the teasing contractions convincing me every night was THE night. Beyond that, it doubles as my secret weapon against relentless headaches; a gentle massage on my temples, the back of my neck, and up to my ears, and voilà – instant relief. Its remarkable effects have captivated my entire family, making it an essential addition to our daily lives! I highly recommend it to everyone.

    Used this throughout my pregnancy before bed & it was the perfect way to moisturize post-bath.

    This lotion has been so soothing for my growing belly with pregnancy; no itching or stress marks either! Any time I feel achy I put this on and it’s affective immediately which has blown my mind, I’ve never used something that is so quick to help before! I’ve also been putting it on every night and have slept so well that it’s convinced my husband to start using it too;) He’s also said it’s the only thing that’s helped his achy knees in sports and work.
    All this to say, we will always have this on hand in our household. It’s been so valuable to have!

    Use those on my son ! A little greasy but it seems to work ! Have to wash hands afterwards! Overall good product!!

  10. Mackenzie Hesselroth (verified owner)

    My favorite lotion from Earthley. Easy way to get magnesium and the smell is wonderful! Love it for me and my two boys!

  11. Rebecca Joyce (verified owner)

    Use this on myself and kids
    I love it
    Helps with leg cramps for me and helps the kids sleep well

  12. Kylie (verified owner)

    The Good Night Lotion could not have a more perfect name. This stuff is amazing and truly works wonders for us. My 6 yr old has always had trouble sleeping. She would have a hard time settling before bed and struggled falling asleep. Once she fell asleep she would often wake up in the middle of the night. Now we put some of this lotion on her belly right before bed and she can usually fall asleep very quickly, and stay asleep! I hope you never stop making this lotion because I will be a customer for life. I’ve already recommended it to several people.

  13. Kristina (verified owner)

    LOVE THIS! I used to use melatonin for my kids until I learned what I was actually giving them!
    This stuff works like magic for us. I originally bought it to use on my infant, but now we all use it

  14. Jaime (verified owner)

    I can’t believe how well this works! It’s been so helpful for my chronic pain, for helping my toddler sleep, and for helping him poo! We absolutely love it!

  15. Chelsey Kurzhal (verified owner)

    This stuff is AMAZING for headaches. I have tried so many natural headache remedies, and this is the ONLY one that has worked, even for my husband (who is pretty skeptical of natural stuff haha). I’d say it works 4/5 times for us. I also use it every night for myself and sometimes my kiddos to help us relax & combat mg deficiency. Love it!!!

  16. Amanda R (verified owner)

    I love this stuff! Use to help relax, get my daily magnesium dose, and also a great deodorant!!! Nothing toxic and keeps you fresh.

  17. Ashley Frank (verified owner)

    Our whole family uses and loves this product! My girls (2yr old and 3yr old) put this lotion on their bellies as part of their nighttime routine! I will never take melatonin ever again knowing how well this magnesium lotion works and how much better it is for our bodies!

  18. rweed7979 (verified owner)

    I love this Good Night lotion! It smells so good, and really helps me to relax after a long day at work or a day of homeschooling (both can be stressful at times!). I can actually tell when I don’t use it–not as restful as when I do.

  19. Mary Lea Kloesel (verified owner)

    I have not had to take anything for my aching shins or tingling toes since I started using this nightly lavender lotion. They were aching almost every night. It is absolutely wonderful. I do put on socks and pajamas after applying because it is oily for awhile before soaking in. It is worth it!

  20. Barbara (verified owner)

    Both my husband and I love this product. This one helps to decrease muscle cramping and promote relaxation for sleep.
