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 have used this in our bedtime routine for a while now. I love knowing my kids are getting a great source of magnesium. I fell even more in love with it when I started using it late pregnancy on the back of my calves. Oh my gosh! I think Jesus made this cream because not waking up in excruciating leg cramps is heaven!

  2. Stephanie

    One of my favorite Earthley products! I always get the worst migraines, leg cramps and constipation especially while pregnant. This cures all of them! I use it daily, pregnant and not. I love that it absorbs quickly and is safe and easy to use on my children as well! I like the sensitive one, it has little scent. I recommend magnesium cream to everyone!

  3. Rachel

    I love the good night lotion, it really has helped me and my family. At first it seemed to not be working, but found out that if you are deficient in magnesium it well do that. Also love the lavender one, the blue bless scent was ok. I thought it was going to smell really good, but it smelled ok and had a back note of plastic. But overall would recommend.

  4. Shelly (verified owner)

    This is our favorite Earthley product and our first of many. I rub this on my kids feet and bellies every night and it is a great way to get them magnesium and good sleep. This is my go to for Christmas/Birthday gifts for everyone in my family. I like to stockup during the cooler months because if the delivery gets too hot in the Arizona heat it gets a grainy texture. It still works but it just doesn’t rub in as smoothly as it’s normal buttery texture would.

  5. Brianne H

    Cannot sleep without it! I used to take magesium for migraine prevention but that always caused me to have stomach issues in the morning. I read switching to a topical magesium helped eliminate this as well as being easier to absorb by the body. My headaches are minimal, I sleep great, helps with the pesky restless legs, and the blue bliss is heavenly. I cannot and will not be without it!

  6. Desiree Blessing (verified owner)

    I went from needing 2-3 melatonins or benadryl to sleep, to only rubbing a pea sized amount of this behind my ears before bed and I sleep SO good! Now I’m not harming my body with all that other medicine. So thankful for this all natural lotion.

  7. Katrina

    I started using this while pregnant and it made such a difference in my sleep routine, especially during the third trimester. I ordered it frantically one night after being woken up by a bad leg cramp. Thankfully when I added this to my nightly routine it helped in that area as well. I was skeptical at first but I swear by this product. I now use it on my baby as part of his bedtime routine.

  8. Sara Kannas (verified owner)

    We really like this lotion. It helps my family relax and get a good night sleep!

  9. Carol

    My son started getting growing pains in his legs and we started putting this on his legs and magnesium baths and he hasn’t had anymore pain since. Love this product!

    Goodnight lotion is a great way to help get your magnesium intake Not only that but I also will use along with the sleepy time tincture and Nighty Night to me.When I have my grandson with me he always says Gamma can I have that stuff that helps me sleep.So yes it’s safe for kids which I Love.

  11. Jessica (verified owner)

    My 8 year old son struggles to settle his thoughts and fall asleep at night. Bedtime has been a tough and exhausting battle for years. Now, we rub a little of this on his tummy or the bottoms of his feet and he is out within the hour every night. What a life changing yet simple change. I only wish I would have discovered it sooner.

  12. Gwen (verified owner)

    Wow, there’s a noticeable difference in sleep quality when I use this lotion that I have not experienced with other magnesium products! My kiddos use it to (we have the unsecented) and was great to help my son calm down at night when I was weaning him and he was missing out normal bedtime routine. I will be buying this again!

  13. Lori Petrick (verified owner)

    I love the good night cream. I struggle with insomnia along with severe muscle spasms due to a medical condition. I have tried everything (excluding pharmaceuticals) but nothing has helped me more than this cream. I use it every night to get better sleep. I also have used on several occasions for muscle spasms. This cream stops the spasms within minutes of application. I am truly grateful for this product.

  14. Emily Thalman (verified owner)

    A great way to get magnesium into our bodies quickly! Love that this is safe for the whole family! I have been using this on my son since he was an infant.

  16. Kortney (verified owner)

    I ordered this mainly for my husband but we have all started using it and really like it. We go to sleep quickly and get a better sleep!

  17. Sarah Rogers (verified owner)

    Absolutely love this stuff! I have used it for muscle cramps for myself and husband and now we use it on our daughter every night. While I don’t think it helps her “sleep better” I do think it’s important for her to use. It is part of her nighttime routine and I use it nightly as well. Smells fantastic and not greasy which I love.

  18. colleen (verified owner)

    I dont know if I will EVER be without this magical lotion ever again. Smell is amazing, not artificial. Rubs into my skin so easily and feels great afterwards as well.
    My sleep routine is so much better

  19. Tylene Lucas (verified owner)

    This is a great product, currently pregnant and sleep is a struggle but it’s definitely more sound using this! I also use on my 2 yr old and she has way less wake ups and sleep talking at night with this!

  20. Brittany (verified owner)

    This! Get this! Smells amazing. Feels amazing. Works great on my little babe! I will be gifting this to many family members and friends this year! It’s wonderful.
