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:

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. Ali (verified owner)

    This calming mixture of lavender and magnesium is my absolute favorite. My 4yo looks forward to it every night as part of our bedtime routine. This has been my most recommend product by far, especially because the whole family can use it.

  2. Jaime Kilburg (verified owner)

    I’m so happy I tried this lotion! The smell is a nice, soft lavender and a little bit of the lotion goes a long way. I’ve incorporated it in my nightly routine and highly recommend to others.

  3. Beth K (verified owner)

    I recommend this to every mom whose child needs sleep help, with great results. My children sleep so well now, using it nightly, and my second child was a terrible sleeper until we started using this regularly. I can still tell if we miss a few days! I used to make my own mag lotion, but this is SO MUCH BETTER in texture and absorbency.

  4. Tami (verified owner)

    GNL is my go-to lotion. It doesn’t leave me sticky or itchy. It glides on silky smooth and helps me fall asleep so much better than when I don’t use it. I like it for muscle aches as well. It’s my favorite product to slather on after a hot shower. The scent is mild and pleasant, not chemical-laden or cloying. I appreciate that Earthley is transparent about their products. And they are easy to chat with due to the chat button on their site. I’ve inquired before about various ingredients and the response was almost immediate. That’s the kind of customer service I truly appreciate. Obviously, shipping isn’t quite as fast a Amazon but it’s still very reasonable and prompt. No long wait for my favorite products.

    I love the goodnight lotion! So much that I bought more to give as gifts and I recommend it to anyone I hear is having sleep issues. I’ve used it on my kids too! Love it! Prior to using the goodnight lotion I couldn’t tell you the last time I fell into a truly deep sleep. After using this lotion, I wake up refreshed! That hasn’t happened in quite a while!

  6. Francesca (verified owner)

    This stuff is awesome. My two year old fights to go to sleep at night and was waking up numerous times a night. She still fights going to sleep but now she stays asleep. We have been using this for approx 2 weeks now and ever since she started she has not got up once until the morning and sleeps 9-10 hour stretches. I tried some too and it makes me sleep better as well. Highly recommended!

  7. Mollie (verified owner)

    I purchased this for myself and my 3 year old – he stays up too late and takes a while to settle down in the evenings. I have noticed a positive difference! Also, for myself – I struggle with sleep issues as far as staying asleep. This has helped me get longer ‘blocks’ of sleep than I normally would get and it smells great and feels great!

  8. Amber (verified owner)

    This product is truly amazing. I use it on my 9 and almost 3 year old girls. Within 10/15 minutes they are both asleep. My little one would be up for at least an hour or two after being put to bed, not now. Both my girls love the smell and ask for the good night lotion every night now. Such a life saver. I love it too, getting a great night sleep. Will be buying the bigger size next time I order.

  9. clara07martin1 (verified owner)

    This product has made bedtime be a peaceful time and I no longer dred it. It used to be that my children (ages 5 and 7) would stay up after we read and tucked them in for an hour or two. Now they are asleep with in 10 minuets of us finishing our routine. It is a life saver and I am so thankful I bought it!

  10. Jordan (verified owner)

    I love this lotion! I started using it a few months ago and I can’t get enough. Nights that I forget it I can really tell a difference. I even gifted it to my mom and sister as presents and they really enjoy it too. My sister is a nurse and works night shifts so it is really hard for her to get good sleep. But this product has really been working for her

  11. Angelica (verified owner)

    I recently had twins and also have an almost 2 year old. I bought this to try and help them sleep in a healthier way. Not only does it smell good, I believe it’s helping. My 2 year old is sleeping like a rock. Rarely wakes up anymore! Thank you earthley

  12. Jessica Pruitt (verified owner)

    I’m going on night 5 of using it and I’ve slept all night for the past 3 nights! I suggest in dozing off and also staying asleep and so far I am loving the results!! It also smells wonderful and leaves my skin smooth! I will definitely be ordering the larger one next time!

  13. timby23d (verified owner)

    Love it. My kids love it as well. Very relaxing.

  14. Ashley (verified owner)

    Love this lotion. I use it on both my kids feet before bed and I use it on myself as well. It works wonders for my kids.

  15. Shea (verified owner)

    I love love love the good night lotion. I sleep so much more soundly. I fall asleep faster & get more solid sleep-not waking up in the middle of the night.
    If I roll over & go right to sleep, my hands feel kind of sticky the next morning but I just wash them & it’s fine.

  16. Jordan A Kirkpatrick (verified owner)

    Got this for my husband to help him get better rest and sleep. He did say he noticed a difference! He wasn’t sure if it was enough of a difference to buy it again, but he gave it an overall good review.

  17. Kimberly Hamilton (verified owner)

    This has got to be one of my favorite Earthley products! My little guy who is 4 has suffered from night terrors and restless sleep since birth and I’ve tried tons of different things with little improvement. When I started using this magnesium Good Night Lotion on him every night I started noticing huge improvements in his overall sleep. He sleeps more sound and has fewer night terrors which is amazing! I’m more rested myself now and beyond thrilled! Plus it smells great a little goes a long ways!

  18. Lela F. (verified owner)

    This lotion is absolutely amazing! When my daughters are having trouble sleeping, a little of this lovely smelling lotion helps them relax and get to sleep in a very quickly.

  19. Stephanie H. (verified owner)

    This stuff helps me sleep so soundly…sometimes too soundly! Despite sleeping through a few alarms I appreciate this lotion because I have fallen asleep much more easily since incorporating it into my nightly routine. I am hoping this is also helping my hormones balance out because I have recently stopped taking hormonal birth control.

  20. Peggy (verified owner)

    We initially thought that the GNL was helping. However after taking a break from using it. I opened my container today and found to my dismay it had rusted on the inside of my tin. I’m glad to see that you are using a different container.
    I don’t intend to buy again.
