Good Night Lotion – For Healthy Sleep and Magnesium

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.

    So amazing! I use this every night on myself and my girls. We get such deep, restful sleep. After about 15-20 minutes of applying, I get that sleepy feeling and boom fall asleep so quickly. I will never go without this. I also gift it allllll the time to family!!

  2. Gina Tinio (verified owner)

    This is by far my favorite Earthley product. I apply it to my legs every night before bed, and my sleep is more restful than on the nights I occasionally forget. I also love it for during pregnancy. Applied to my hips, it eases the hip pain I get from my SI joint. I don’t like strongly scented products so I buy the sensitive version and I’ve been really happy with it. I don’t love the feeling of the texture on my hands, so I usually wipe it off my hands after I rub it in, but that’s not a big deal to me.

  3. Winter (verified owner)

    I bought this for my son and daughter when they were having sleep and constipation issues but it has helped me the most! I have a hard time falling asleep and this helps me physically relax. I sleep through the nights most nights and have felt more rested and energetic in the morning (that might be because of the Energy plus I’ve started taking). It does leave a type of film or residue on your hands but I just wipe it off if there is too much. My daughter broke out when I used the regular lotion but when I switched to the sensitive stuff she did great! As for my son, I’m not sure if it helped him but he has been sleeping through the night much more frequently! It also smells awesome.

  4. Katrina

    I bought this for a restless toddler. It seems to work well on the nights we use it, and he asks for it because it “feels so nice”. It smells really good and is creamy.

  5. Lilia Leal (verified owner)

    This has been a stamp at our home for bedtime. I have been using it on myself, my 1.5 year old and my sons 8/12 years old. It has helped with a good night sleep. I also gave some for my mom to try and she has loved it even ordered herself one. Love earthly products

  6. Marjorie Dobson (verified owner)

    Love this stuff! I use it on my legs during pregnancy to help with restless leg syndrome, and I put it on my toddler’s bellies and thighs before I lay them down for naps. I haven’t had any issues with the lotion’s consistency, it seems to absorb well, and the smell is lovely!

  7. marcia tollefson (verified owner)

    I love this cream. However, I don’t use it for sleep, soreness, etc. It I a wonderful body cream after a shower. Skin feels so soft and nourished. Any cream with “butters” is a win. Earthly nailed it, again.

  8. Amanda (verified owner)

    One star because this lotion made my toddlers wake up WAY more than they already were. While using the lotion they’d wake up restless or some days alert when that was never an issue before.

    • Emilie Cubino (verified owner)

      We are so sorry to hear this product did not work for you. In some cases, magnesium and lavender can have the opposite effects. Your toddlers may need to use it during the day instead. Magnesium controls over 300 functions in the body and is always good for our bodies, but some people may need to take it at different times. Please see our refund policy if you feel you need to return it.

  9. Margot (verified owner)

    Really wanted to love this because of the reviews, but, not for me or my little…left a super weird tacky texture on our skin and it would last through to the next day/: the smell was nice though.

  10. Brittany Mello (verified owner)

    This is the most amazing product I have ever used in my life. I am no exaggerating. Every night I apply a bit to my stomach. Within 15 minutes I am falling asleep. I have never slept so deeply in my life. My boyfriend even noticed that I no longer move around during the night. I wake up in the morning so refreshed. This has been an absolute dream for me. I highly recommend and urge anyone looking at these reviews to just go ahead and buy it. I also purchased the lymphatic cream. The magnesium and lymphatic cream together at night is chefs kiss. I am obsessed!

  11. Melissa (verified owner)

    So-so on helping toddler sleep but totally wrecked her stomach and made her nauseated for two days after only a small amount put on her feet

  12. Liz Wickey (verified owner)

    I love this lotion. Helps tremendously with restless legs at night.

  13. Amy Kumar (verified owner)

    I’ve been using this on my feet at night before bed and sleeping so good!!

  14. Jenna (verified owner)

    I’ve been using this for sleep recently and haven’t really noticed a difference but I’ve had knee/leg cramps since i was 3 and the only thing that would make it go away is NSAIDs. I put this on my knee tonight and 15 minutes later, the cramps were gone! I’m absolutely mind blown 27 years of pretty severe knee cramps and this finally did the trick! I’ll never stop using this!

  15. Glenda (verified owner)

    A friend of mine gave me this to try since I’ve had trouble sleeping. My girls and I love this lotion & it is now a bedtime staple!!
    I took advantage of the Black Friday sale and bought a tub for my parents !!

  16. Larissa

    This stuff is so amazing.
    It’s really been a game changer for my whole family.
    I love the natural ingredients that are safe for the whole family.

  17. Jenae Okey (verified owner)

    I started using this during pregnancy for legs cramps and restless sleep and I couldn’t believe how much better I slept with no more cramps or restless legs. I’m still using it for restful sleep and sometimes for my kiddos! Highly recommend.

  18. Randa B

    This stuff helped me so much during pregnancy. When my daughter would not stop tossing and turning I would rub just a dot on my belly and massage her right where she was kicking. It calmed her down and I could finally sleep. I use it now when I wake up with rest less legs on my calves and I put some on my feet when I’m anxious.

  19. Monique (verified owner)

    I love the Good Night Lotion. Really calms the muscles. I recommend.
