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.

  1. Kayley McDonald (verified owner)

    I got a rare neurological condition in 2022 that paralyzed me. Through my recovery process I have experienced severe muscle spasms and fatigue as my legs relearn to walk. This lotion has been instrumental in allowing my legs to function and heal ESPECIALLY in allowing me good quality sleep. I never before had restless legs but at the end of the day of fighting to take each step my legs are fidgety and exhausted, this lotion is incredible and I highly recommend! So thankful to have it in my toolbox of supports!

  2. Elsie

    This lotion is moisturizing, gently scented, and easy to apply. I would love to say this has helped my kiddos sleep and be regular in the bathroom, but that hasn’t happened. It’s a great way to get magnesium, which I love, but… the cons are the greasy pajamas and tendency to burn if there are scratches or irritated areas of skin.

  3. Carmen (verified owner)

    The whole family LOVES this lotion! And I love that it is a safe way to supplement magnesium!

  4. Jennifer Guile (verified owner)

    Love this lotion for myself and my toddler! We use it nightly – I notice a difference if I don’t use it, it helps with better sleep & my digestion has improved dramatically since using this

  5. Anmarie Epling

    This stuff is amazing. I got restless leg syndrome while pregnant with my son. Nothing would help, laying in bed was horrible. I started a magnesium pill while pregnant with my daughter, and seemed to help some. I started using this, and it helps. I use it nightly, and I don’t have an issue. I love that it’s all natural, and safe for my children to use. It also has helped my daughter sleep better. She hasn’t been a very good sleeper since she was 2 months old.

  6. Bekah (verified owner)

    I’ve never slept so well in my life! I get woken up by toddlers and fall immediately back to sleep when I used to be up for sometimes hours tossing and turning. My dad, who usually only gets a couple hours of sleep at night, tried it and had his first dream in 6 years AND slept through the night. This has 5 stars for a reason!

  7. Angelique Fowden (verified owner)

    We love Good Night Lotion! Blue Bliss is our very favorite scent when available, but we enjoy them all. Regular use has helped me keep up my lab magnesium levels that, prior to use, were pretty low. It helps my youngest, airway/sleep deprived kiddo rest better, although we noticed that we need to apply it during the day to keep her from being more keyed up at night. Our more recent order was gritty and I do not like the texture on my skin, but its benefit far outweighs any temporary discomfort & most of our tubs of lotion have felt wonderful & creamy.

  8. erika.stepheny (verified owner)

    Our little ones have the hardest time falling asleep most nights. We started using the Good Night Lotion (unscented) and LOVE IT! We rub it on their tummy before bed. We pair it with the Sleepy Time tincture which we give under their tongue. Combined I see a big difference! You have nothing to lose by trying it, not even sleep!! Try it today and you will be glad you did!

  9. bryanzmomma (verified owner)

    When I remember to use this, I sleep more soundly and wake up more refreshed. I also use this on my sons – age 6 and 17. They both seem to sleep better with it than without!

  10. Espy Lopez (verified owner)

    The lotion has an earthy scent to it that is quite strong, however, I love this lotion. It helped me fall relax so that i could eventually fall into a deep sleep. It is not greasy and it very moisturizing too!!

  11. Jacqueline Sharpton (verified owner)

    Has helped my daughter on the nights she was feeling restless when trying to fall asleep.

  12. Liz (verified owner)

    I had been suffering with severe leg and foot cramps for years, which disrupted my sleep nightly. My daughter recommended I try this product, which I rub in to my stomach area nightly. No more cramping!!

  13. jmsowder62417 (verified owner)

    This is the best! It has helped my family so much at night. I used when I was pregnant and now my kids and husband use it as well. It helps us to wind down in the evenings and sleep better. It has also helped with leg cramps during the night.

  14. crystal.obarr

    I’ve used this on my kids legs at night and it helps him sleep. Great product and not too greasy.

  15. Jessica Tolbert (verified owner)

    I absolutely love the good night lotion! I had a really hard time sleeping postpartum and didn’t want to take any drugs to help with that since I was breastfeeding and my sister in law recommended this and I’ve used it constantly since then! Most people are magnesium deficient and this helps so much! I ordered some off Amazon that didn’t really seem to make a difference and then when I gave this a shot I was so relieved to find something that worked

  16. Gina (verified owner)

    I’m thankful for this product knowing it’s safe to use on myself and my children! I used it all through pregnancy and helped so much. Those debilitating Charlie horses you get when pregnant are painful but I never had an issue when I remembered to use this at night! Even when I am a bit sore from exercising I find that putting this on at night helps my system recharge for the next day.

  17. Henley Drew

    I love this lotion! I’m in my third trimester and was really suffering from leg cramps at night. This lotion has taken away the cramps and restlessness and helps me get a great nights sleep.

  18. Mikayla (verified owner)

    The Good night lotion is what brought me to Earthley. My child was having issues with constipation and trouble sleeping because her legs were bothering her. In my search for solutions I came across this product. She faithfully puts it on her stomach and legs every night now and it helps her so much. I love that it is made with only natural and safe ingredients, so I don’t stress that it’s used daily.

  19. Kim

    I LOVE this lotion. My absolute favorite for my littles! It smells great and it’s gentle enough for my baby’s skin. I am so thankful for Earthley’s natural products!

  20. a martin

    it smells nice, not super moisturizing and not sure yet if its making any big difference
